Most widely held works by William Merritt Sale
Wuthering Heights; an authoritative text with essays in criticism by Emily Brontë( Book )

24 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the savage, tormented foundling Heathcliff, who falls wildly in love with Catherine Earnshaw, the daughter of his benefactor, and the violence and misery that result from their thwarted longing for each other. A book of great power and strength, it is filled with the raw beauty of the moors and an uncanny understanding of the terrible truths about men and women. It is an understanding made even more extraordinary by the fact that it came from the heart of a woman who lived most of her brief life in the remote wildness of the moors
