This contain's Bronte's preface to the second edition of the book, as well as a detailed synopsis of each chapter. I would have been happy with just the brief summary of each chapter and the dramatis personae along with the family tree of each of the tragically intertwined households. It seems to me novels like this were written for a time when people generally had less demands on their attention and a work like this can help make sense of things and check ... so those are first cousins? Yup.
This definitely helped explain what was going on in Wuthering Heights. The genealogy is a bit hard to follow since the names are the same from generation to generation, the language can be hard to follow at times, and overall it's a dense, complicated read!
I'd like to thank Cliff Hillegass for introducing the modern study guide to American audiences. I still feel like a cheater but, without the study guide to Wuthering Heights, there is no way I'd be prepared for tonight's book club.
