4 Setting Wuthering Heights – “I just hope, I pray, that he may forget his diabolical prudence and kill me.” (313) – “’But my father threatened me,” gasped the boy, clasping his attenuated fingers, “and I dread him---I dread him! I dare not tell!’” (545) Thurshcross Grange – “seated herself on the top of the wall, reaching over to gather some hips that bloomed scarlet” (475) – “Afterwards, they dried and combed beautiful hair, and gave her a pair of enormous slippers, and wheeled her to the fire;”(101)

5 Setting Wuthering Heights – “I have no pity! The more the worms writhe, the more I yearn to crush out their entrails!” (313) – “About midnight, while we still sat up, the storm came rattling over the Heights in full fury.”(173) – “pulling her on his knee, administered with the other a shower of terrific slaps on the side of the head,”(553) Thrushcross Grange – “Cathy stayed at Thrushcross Grange five weeks: till Christmas. By that time her ankle was thoroughly cured, and her manners much improved.”(103) – “basin of warm water, and washed her feet; and Mr. Linton mixed a tumbler of negus, and Isabella emptied a plateful of cakes into her lap,”(101) – In summer, Miss Catherine delighted to climb along these trunks, and sit in the branches, swinging twenty feet above the ground; and I, pleased with her agility and her light, childish heart,”(471)

7 “The whole household need not witness the sight of your welcoming a runaway servant as a brother.” (195) “I cannot help it; I shall be glad when they leave it, and shift to the Grange.”(689)
