Abstract

This thesis investigates the significance of dogs in Wuthering Heights. Using evidence from letters and biographies, I will prove that Emily Bront was very familiar with dogs and their attributes and as such probably used them meaningfully in the novel. I will also demonstrate a mythological connection between one of the dogs and Nelly Dean the main narrator. Through a close reading of the primary text and with reference to relevant literature, I will also show that close associations can be made between particular breeds and some of the main characters of the novel. Finally, I will provide evidence that most of the characters display typically canine traits and behaviour.
