This essay provides a reading of the geographical structure of Emily Brontë’sWuthering Heights. Using concepts borrowed from the theory of Mikhail Bakhtin and David Harvey, it shows that the geography ofWuthering Heightscomprises a juxtaposition of two temporally and spatially contrasting environments. The interaction between these two geographies is interpreted as Emily Brontë’s exploration of the conflict between capitalist and feudal socio-economic systems, and, more broadly, between social and cultural modernity and Britain’s pre-modern past.
