Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Write 4 reading Journals Regarding Wuthering Heights Chapters 6-11 (about one page each)
Below I will provide 4 quotes and specific instructions on what must be done for each.
Please number so that i know which response goes with which quote.
For quotes one and two provide a critical/ analytical response (one entry for each quote). Analyze the authors use of language and her narrative techniques that are noted. Incorporate quotes as evidence. Consider the following questions:
-discuss the language in a specific passage. How does the diction/detial contribute to the tone?
– How is the personality of a specific character established within the passage?
-Does the author use irony, satire, symbolism, allusions, etc. What is the impact of this technique?
-Are there any predominant images that keep recurring throughout the work?
-Explain the effect of any unusual organizational or rhetorical strategies used in the work- multiple narrators, pacing elements, chapter division, letter about events, etc.
1. ?It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him; and that, not because he?s handsome, Nelly, but because he?s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same, and Linton?s is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire,?(98).
? Catherine is admitting that she does truly love Heathcliff, but this quote shows how she is not much more open minded than those who surround her. Although they have always been close, Catherine still refuses to marry Heathcliff because she knows that it will ruin her social status.
2. “?I seek no revenge on you,?” replied Heathcliff, less vehemently. “?That’s not the plan. The tyrant grinds down his slaves and they don’t turn against him; they crush those beneath them,?? (138).
? This quote is important because Heathcliff does not wish to punish Catherine in any way.
For quotes three and four provide a “reader response”. Respond to the quotes (one entry for each). Tell how the quotes and events make you feel. You can use first person here. You may ask questions, make connections. The response should offer interesting insight.
3. “Well, we must be for ourselves in the long run; the mild and generous are only more justly selfish than the domineering”. (ch 9)
-Always trust yourself.People who give sometimes always expect something in return and that is the only reason to give. To make themselves look like something they are not.
4. ?A good heart will help you to a bonny face, my lad … and a bad one will turn the bonniest into something worse than ugly? (Ch 7)
