Elisa, in her reply, enthuses over her skill: “May be I could do it, too. I have a gift with things” (Steinbeck 2). Ironically, Henry’s next reaction dampens her spirit as he retracts his compliment to Elisa saying condescendingly: “Well, it sure works with flowers” (Steinbeck 2), implying gardening to be exclusively meant for women.

Both Heathcliff and Catherine have counterparts in the Linton siblings, their counterparts being the perfect opposite of the other: Edgar is Heathcliff’s counterpart being raised as the perfect gentleman, well mannered and with civilised values but while these traits get Catherine to marry him over Heathcliff, they are ultimately useless and weak. Isabella Linton, Catherine’s counterpart and Edgar Linton’s sister is cultured and much more civilised than Catherine who is wilder and lively, occasionally even cruel.
