This paper analyzes Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, published in 1847 when England's political climate showed evidence of an emerging feminist movement. The paper examines the heroine, Catherine Earnshaw and her figurative double, Heathcliff to illuminate Bronte's commentary on the maddening confinement of female individuality.

From the Paper:

"As a result of her hopelessness, Heathcliff becomes Catherine's device for strength. So when little Catherine asked for a whip, she got Heathcliff instead who proved to be her metaphorical "whip" in using him as a tool for power."
