The novel portrays the love-hate relationship between Heathcliff (a homeless gypsy) and Catherine Earnshaw (Mr. Earnshaw’s daughter). Besides, the novel develops through the technique of flash-back, adopted by the novelist. The narrator of the novel is Mr. Lockwood, who is an affluent individual from the south. The psychological aspects of the novel are not limited to the sphere of the protagonist (say, Heathcliff) but it extends to the relationship among the family members and the other characters in the novel. For instance, Heathcliff’s identity as an abandoned gypsy and Catherine’s refusal to marry him are the reasons behind his psychological problems. In the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Mr. Lockwood opines about Heathcliff that “I felt interested in a man who seemed more exaggeratedly reserved than me” (3). On the other side, Catherine’s problems are interconnected with her social status as a member of an aristocratic family and her love for Heathcliff. To be specific, Heathcliff considers that his identity and illiteracy are interconnected with his ancestry as a gypsy. On the other side, Catherine considers that her social status can be sustained by marrying Edgar Linton. At the same time, Catherine was not able to find out an apt solution for her psychological problems. Heathcliff did not try to take revenge on Catherine because he knew that the best possible way to take revenge is to transform his social status and entrap Edgar and his family. So, one can see that the core element of the novel is interconnected with the psychological features of the main characters.
