The end is drawing near, and I know for many readers, it can't come too soon. I'm sure many would agree with Mr. Lockwood's summation at the end of chapter 16/30: "I would not pass another winter here, for much."
There is so much crazy behavior revealed here, chiefly Heathcliff's admission that he dug up Catherine's grave and is now haunted by her. I've seen a couple of film versions of Wuthering Heights, neither of which is particularly memorable, but I do recall that the scene of Heathcliff's graveyard adventures always seems to come off as overly melodramatic. There's something almost moving about him telling the story to Nelly, versus seeing him actually doing it, and I think the filmmakers always go for the visual excess. Wonder if next year's version will do the same?
I could almost feel sorry for Cathy in the last chapter of this set, as she's trapped in this hideous situation, if she hadn't been such a problematic character earlier in the book. Yet, that's what makes her interesting (to me, anyway): if she was just a sweet thing, then this would be your run-of-the-mill melodrama. But she's not. She may deserve what she gets, but at the same time, would I wish this on anyone, even someone like Cathy? Not really. It's more complex this way.
One more week, four more chapters...
