This is a sort of repost from my journal, and since my journal is probably too boring to read, I don't get comments on it. Oh well. How sad.
Anyways, here's what I had come up with at 2,22 a.m. and I would really like to know....

Recently, I came upon a thought that I needed a new picture to try and to emulate (but not plagiarize ), and I wanted something Wuthering Heights related. Which brings me to yet another related topic. Wuthering Heights.
This books is just so shattering, so brilliant, so perfect, that even after having read it over 7 times, it still gets to me how perfect it is. It also shows how perfect it is by being bolded, underlined, and put into a different font, color, and size. Not many titles deserve that. Anyways, I would love to hear your thoughts on this book. Please. Discuss how you hate Heathcliff (although I will argue with that view), or how (in my opinion) Hindley ruined everyone's life. Ask me about that one, and you will get an honest answer. Not something like, 'He was stoopid, and ugly and a drunk. Of course he rooind everee one's life.' or something equally time wasting. But this brings me to my actual question.

Which was your favorite version and WHY? I love discussing this with people. Most often with my friends' parents, as none of my friends seem to love worship this book as much as I do. What a shame. Or not; I can just drive them nuts with my 178th rendition of an excellent quote from the end of chapter 15.

I terribly, terribly want to know. I think that I may fair burst. That's a lie. However, I do really want to know, because I was looking through pictures to draw (this ties in with both my earlier points) and came upon one that had nothing to do with my search, but inevitably was life altering. Or hour altering, which ever one suits your imaginative fancy better. This was a page from some literary magazine, and had a spread on the merits of each of the Wuthering Heights movies that were made. I prefered the 1992 one, however, Juliette Binoche as Catherine was a slightly bad choice. I did think that Ralph Fiennes (or whatever), who they chose for Heathcliff in it, did a fantastic job.
