"Nelly, I am Heathcliff!”
—Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
"Cathy and Heathcliff’s mutual passion may have become a byword for the archetypal love affair. But it is, in fact, a quasi-incestuous, oddly unerotic relationship, more Romantic than romantic, which threatens to undermine certainties as basic as that of individual identity."
—Lucasta Miller, in the Preface
