Abstract

My thesis will offer a psychological interpretation of Wuthering Heights based upon the extraordinary brutality, which indicates the significance of Emily Bronte's preoccupation with evil in man. I will flash a light on the reasons for the great astonishment and indignation that the novel's depiction of the ungoverned, passionate love and ferocity aroused. Using different psychological views of the phenomenon of violence, I will prove that all -human beings including the characters in the novel resort to the inferior defense mechanism of aggression in order to be able to unleash their repressed emotions. Through the change of the male protagonist's character not only will I demonstrate that love if frustrated can easily give its energy to evil but also the evil itself is man's will to destroy.
