Thrushcross Grange my Home!

To be honest I rather be in Thrushcross Grange because I like all the fancy, clean, equipment, and good environment. I like all the manners that Thrushcross Grange has, because it keeps the house stabilized and under control unlike, Wuthering Heights. I like how Thrushcross  is enclosed and keeps danger away, and it shows its protection and care for it's people living at Thruchcross Grange. The dog that the Lintons have, Skulker, also shows the protection that Thrushcross Grange has for it's people.  I adore all the beautiful furniture, gold ceilings, antiques. One of the quotes that shows Thrushcross Grange's beauty "Carpeted with crimson, crimson-covered chairs and tables, and a pure white ceiling bordered by gold." All these beautiful clothes that they wear makes you look good, which is also a good  thing, because some people judge you by how you look and what you wear. The way they treated people was also very polite. This quote shows how they treated their intruder, Catherine when she was bitten by Skulker  "Afterward they dried and combed her beautiful hair, and gave her a pair of enormous slippers, wheeled her to the fire; and I left her, as merry as she could be, dividing her food between the little dog and Skulker." You can tell that Catherine was treated like a princess. My opinion is that I would live in Thrushcross Grange because of their politeness, manners, and beautiful clothing and furniture

yo fuzz! I completely agree with you, Thrushcross grange is awesome! I would much rather be there than at Wuthering Heights. I particularly liked your quotes, as i used many of them myself =P. Keep up the good work.

Me too, i would personally go for thrushcross.. . Wuthering heights is a gateway to hell, you have hareton hanging puppies, the overwhelming odourof dead rabbits, Joseph ejaculating incoherent words, we can observe that there is casual violence in every corner.. everyone there is sub human except for Zillah of course.. . and Heathcliff stands in the middle of it all. .

Sunita - it is Heathcliff who hangs the dog, and he does this at the gates of Thrushcross Grange. Zillah actively participates in what you describe as 'sub-human' activity by willingly allowing Heathcliff to hold Cathy and Nelly hostage at the Heights towards the end of the novel. Hareton is described as "good things lost amid a wilderness of weeds" by Nelly and he is a shining light at the Heights, one which appreciates love, opportunity and education.

Yes, but I was actually talking of the premise, the Heights - where all these things are allowed to happen just because it's natural, and Emily bronte clearly waves it in our faces, by locating the premise at a place where it's naked and exposed to the weather. Surely, anyone human, wouldn't be able to stand this and not I. Thrushcross Grange is a nice place, in that it does not bear the same violence.

04walkerj - Heathcliff threw a knife at her, and she fled, knocking down Hareton, "who was hanging a litter of puppies from a chairback in the doorway." She ran to the Grange.
