1. Warm-up: Closely reading the setting of Wuthering Heights as a character:
Are you more of an indoor or an outdoor person? Pick ONE good description to analyze.
- Which specific examples of diction (word choice) seem significant? Brainstorm their connotations.
- Which images did the author select? What kind of universe do they create? (Remember that an image must be something you can detect with at least one of your five senses.)
- Are there any examples of figurative language, such as metaphors, similes, and personification? What do these comparisons tell us about this place?
- Are there any potential symbols?
- What is the author using the setting to reveal?
