Wuthering Heights: Making of A Free Woman in Male-chauvinist Victorian Society

Saed Jamil Shahwan


Looking through the lenses of Wuthering Heights, this paper investigates into the biographical elements of its author, Emily Bronte and fine-tunes her personal, social as well as cultural elements that prepared her to revolt against the contemporary Victorian patriarchal society and enabled her to create an epoch-making female character like Catherine who, while living in the very male-chauvinist Victorian society, excelled in restoring love, honor and self-respect of a woman.

Keywords: Victorian, feminist, male-chauvinism, individualism, feminine.
