POV in Wuthering Heights


Can you please explain the point of view in Wuthering Heights and why it is important?  Thank you


Great question, Mia.  The actual novel, Wuthering Heights, is told through Lockwood’s perspective; however, he is re-telling the story as told to him by Nelly.  This POV encourages the reader to wonder how accurate and unbiased Nelly’s perspective of the story is, especially since it is being interpreted by Lockwood and then shared again with the reader.  This is known as a frame narrative.  Good luck!
