Giveaway: Wuthering Heights: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)




Penguin’s founder Allen Lane started the paperback revolution with that little flippant but dignified Penguin (his secretary came up with the name and he sent another colleague off to the zoo to make sketches).   One year later, 3 million Penguin paperbacks had been sold.  Today, the
Penguin imprint alone has over 4000 books in print.  To learn more about our history, see here and here.

We are hands down the publishing logo most recognized internationally---including the story of Terry Waite, the Anglican clergyman who was held hostage in Beirut.  Six months into his captivity, Waite made friends with his jailer, and although they spoke different languages he managed to tell the jailer he wanted a book.  He drew an oval, and he drew a penguin, and he said, “find me a book that looks like that, and it will be a good book.”  That story says everything about what Penguin stands for around the world.



Penguin is celebrating it's 75th Anniversary and they want you to celebrate too! They are giving one of my readers a copy of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.



Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Bronte, was asked to pay some of the publication costs. A somber tale of consuming passions and vengeance played out against the lonely moors of northern England, the book proved to be one of the most enduring classics of English literature. 

The turbulent and tempestuous love story of Cathy and Heathcliff spans two generations -- from the time Heathcliff, a strange, course young boy, is brought to live on the Earnshaw's windswept estate, through Cathy's marriage to Edgar Linton and Heathcliff's plans for revenge, to Cathy's death years later and the eventual union of the surviving Earnshaw and Linton heirs. 

A masterpiece of imaginative fiction, Wuthering Heightsremains as poignant and compelling today as it was when first published in 1847.

+1 I love the cover art of this book! Any book about "the lonely moors of northern England" is definitely a book I would read! This is a classic book, it must be a good one of course. ;)
