By Simon Marsden

Readers of Emily Brontë's poetry and of Wuthering Heights have obvious of their writer, variously, a religious if slightly unorthodox Christian, a heretic, or a visionary "mystic of the moors". instead of trying to unravel this subject, Emily Brontë and the spiritual Imagination means that such conflicting readings are the manufactured from tensions, conflicts and ambiguities in the texts themselves. Rejecting the concept that a unmarried, coherent set of spiritual doctrines are to be present in Brontë's paintings, this publication argues that Wuthering Heights and the poems dramatise person reports of religion within the context of a global within which such religion is often conflicted, constantly threatened. Brontë's paintings dramatises the adventure of innovative religion that's consistently contested via the presence of alternative voices, different worldviews. Her characters hang to visionary religion within the face of dying and mortality, looking forward to and awaiting a last vindication, an eschatological fulfilment that usually lies in a destiny past the scope of the text.
