595 words - 2 pages

As characters of the first generation in Wuthering Heights marry and bear children, the focus shifts to the younger generation. However, the second generation is under a huge influence of the elders.

After Edgar forbade Cathy's connection with Linton Heathcliff, Cathy still furtively writes letters to Linton Heathcliff.

Moreover, her interest in Penistone Craggs reveals her wild energy and passions that are also possessed by Catherine. However, Cathy is a lot more compassionate, for she patiently takes care of Linton Edgar. Her love is softer rather than intense when she expresses it through correspondence. Growing up in Thrush Cross Grange, an educated environment, she becomes civil and caring, like...
