Wuthering Heights is the story of two families that live on the moors in England and how the two families entwine themselves and is about the love and relationships that occur between them and their two estates. There is one relationship in particular, that is the derivative of most of the action in the story and that relationship is the one that exists between the first Catherine and Heathcliff. This relationship is important because although the two felt that they were one with each other and loved each other greatly it never amounted to anything. It was because of this, because of Heathcliff's pursuit of Catherine and his addiction to her that a significant portion of the action in Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights occurs. Heathcliff's addiction to Catherine is the reason that there is all of the conflict, all of the turmoil, all of the anger in the book. His love for Catherine is just like that of a mind-altering drug; there are instances when he is on highs and when he is in withdrawal, it makes him moody and excessively angry, it makes him hallucinate, it makes him search for revenge and it makes him happy.
