In ‚Wuthering Heights‘ writer ilustated her own family life and showed her personality qualities. She was a solitary individual comunicated only with her family members and servants. Her brother was an alcoholic and drug addicted person who abused his family and latter commited suicide. She was also her home housekeeper and this fact gives her similarity to character Nelly. All four Bronte siblings did not eat when they were upset. It could be related with Cathy‘s maybe supposed anorexia when Edgar declared his ultimatum. Bronte‘s writing style could be compared to poem because this novel has much rhythmical, elegial and poetical aproach. The author‘s writing style lexically is very complicated, full of complex sentences. As the novel itself seems to be very complex and sophisticated.

Novel has very complicated narration stucture, therefore it is very layered. This novel is like a story within a story, for it is a frame story. There are no omniscient narrators, because all of Nelly‘s comments are based only on her own interpretation and Mr. Lockwood only gets opinion from her and writes the story. In this novel are two narrators Mr. Lockwood and Ellen ‚Nelly‘ Dean. Mr lockwood starts and finishes the story .Besides he is unreliable narrator because he is unable understand characters ‚I could fancy a love for life here almost possible; and I was a fixed unbeliever in a love of a year's standing'.
