Thus, the doomed love affair between the fiercely and passionate Catherine and Heathcliff was too strong for the prudish Victorian English society. However, Wuthering Heights is not just a haunting love story.

Hence, the fixed notions depicted in the beginning of the novel, mainly by Elizabeth and Darcy, influence the various relationships between characters prompting the progression of the storyline.
