Wuthering Heights - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wuthering Heights
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë's only novel.
Written between October 1845 and June 1846,[1]
Wuthering Heights was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell"; Brontë died the following year, aged 30. Wuthering Heights and Anne Brontë's Agnes
Grey were accepted by publisher Thomas Newby before the success of their sister Charlotte's novel, Jane
Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.[2]
Although Wuthering Heights is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, contemporary reviews for the novel were deeply polarised; it was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was unusually stark, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals of the day, including religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality.[3][4] The English poet and painter Dante
Gabriel Rossetti referred to it as "A fiend of a book – an incredible monster ... The action is laid in hell, – only it seems places and people have English names there."[5] In the second half of the 19th century, Charlotte
Brontë's Jane Eyre was considered the best of the
Brontë sisters' works, but following later re-evaluation, critics began to argue that Wuthering Heights was superior.[6] The book has inspired adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatisations, a musical by Bernard J. Taylor, a ballet, operas (by
Bernard Herrmann, Carlisle Floyd, and Frédéric
Chaslin), a role-playing game,[7] and a 1978 song by
Kate Bush.

Te Earth an Space

...with our moon, its shape resembles an egg, and has been around for 4.5 billion years. Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon. The year was 1969 and the mission was called Apollo 11. After all the excitement from their landing Armstrong made a statement when he stepped out of his aircraft. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” The moon has little to no atmosphere, and has a weak gravitation. The surface of the moon has not changed in 3 billion years, so a foot print on the moon from a million years ago would still be there today. Because the moon has little to no atmosphere there isn’t any water to create erosion and there is no wind. The temperatures of the moon vary from day to night. During the day the temperature is approximately +300°F and night time is -270°F. The temperature is this way due to the fact there is no atmosphere to protect against the sun and keep it warm at night (MoonPhases.Info, 2010-2011). The coolest cosmic entity in the sky is the moon. At night when the moon is out, it’s the first thing that lights up the night sky. It takes 27.3 days for the moon to turn on its axis and to orbit the earth. Due to this it makes the moons phases and orbit a mystery (Charles Q. Choi, 2013). Below is a photo of the moon. Some things in life are just beautiful. It’s interesting to know there are craters, mountain ranges, rilles, and lava plains on the moon. The moon doesn’t construct its own light, it is......

Moon Info

...The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite and he fifth largest satellite in the Solar System. It is the largest natural satellite of a planet in the Solar System relative to the size of its primary, a quarter the diameter of Earth and 1⁄81 its mass . The Moon is the second densest satellite after Io. It is in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing the same face; the near side is marked with dark volcanic maria among the bright ancient crustal highlands and prominent impact craters. It is the brightest object in the sky after the Sun, although its surface is actually very dark, with a similar reflectance to coal. Its prominence in the sky and its regular cycle of phases have since ancient times made the Moon an important cultural influence on language, calendars, art and mythology. The Moon's gravitational influence produces the ocean tides and the minute lengthening of the day. The Moon's current orbital distance, about thirty times the diameter of the Earth, causes it to appear almost the same size in the sky as the Sun, allowing it to cover the Sun nearly precisely in total solar eclipses. The Moon is the only celestial body on which humans have landed. While the Soviet Union's Luna programme was the first to reach the Moon with unmanned spacecraft in 1959, the United States' NASA Apollo program achieved the only manned missions to date, beginning with the first manned lunar orbiting mission by Apollo 8 in 1968, and six manned lunar landings between 1969 and......

...Eclipse is an eclipse in which the full moon passes partially or wholly through the umbra of the earth's shadow (Merriam-Webster, 2012). When this happens, the moon appears darker as it passes into the earth's shadow. One thing that I found interesting is that there are different types of eclipses. When I first read more information on the lunar eclipse I was confused about what those differences are. I found out that during the five thousand year period from 2000 BCE through 3000 CE, there are 7,718 eclipses (both partial and total) of the Moon (Espenak). The two types of eclipses are the lunar eclipse and the solar eclipse. A solar eclipse can only be viewed from a small area of the world but a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. According to Keith Cooley, there are three different types of lunar eclipses. They are as follows: * Partial Lunar Eclipse - A portion of the Moon passes through the Earth's umbral shadow. These events are easy to see, even with the unaided eye. * Penumbral Lunar Eclipse - The Moon passes through the Earth's penumbral shadow. These events are subtle and quite difficult if not impossible to observe. During a penumbral eclipse the moons light is dimmed but does not go dark due to the fact that the penumbral shadow is not dark enough to black out the sun's light. A penumbral eclipse is sometimes referred to as an appulse eclipse. * Total Lunar Eclipse - The entire Moon passes through the Earth's......

...orbital path would change to a parabola or hyperbola and it would escape the gravitational pull of the sun. It would then leave the solar system. Parabolas are the orbital paths of objects in the form of an open curve. If one cuts out an angle in a circular cone, it would follow this path parallel to the sides of the cone. Hyperbolas occur when a plane cuts across two parallels half-cones. Kepler’s laws applies to any situation where two bodies in the universe orbit each other due to their mutual gravitational attraction, not just two planets. For example: Moon’s that orbit planets, such as the four Galilean Moons that orbit Jupiter. #2)(A) The reflecting telescope, which uses a mirror to attract light was perfected by Isaac Newton in 1668 although it was developed by John Gregory in 1663.

Creation of the World (Response to the Greek Version)

...warning a huge, fiery crack appeared in Nothing and Nothing was broken. Sound came racing out, like a banshee shriek, as loud as a blasting cannon. Light came bounding out next, huge, fiery, and blindingly white. Light and Sound became huge and filled the space around them. So strong was their joy of their freedom, that they grabbed each other’s arms and began an excruciating dance. Their arms and their legs flailed about in a wild fashion, and blood dripped from their brows. Loud crashes and booms rang all about them, a white fire engulfed them, and still they danced. Sparks began to fly outward spinning around them. The sparks became chaos and they began to chase each other in the most frightening manner. The sparks were alive also; they collided into one another nearly splitting the very fabric of being. If one were to look upon this sight it would have looked as if the only that existed was this fire. Light and Sound looked about themselves in fascination as they danced, the sparks could no longer be called sparks, for they were taking on bodily forms such as Light and Sound. A long arm loomed suddenly at them and a body of the most exquisite beauty followed. The complexion of this body was as pale as our moon, and deathly beautiful. With such beauty and grace she leapt forth to Light and Sound and knelt upon her dainty knees. Light and Sound broke apart and stared with wonder at the beauty before them. They wondered was it them that had created such an angelic being.......

The Rival by Sylvia Plath

...Literary Commentary Essay: The Rival The quote, “Too much of anything could destroy you, Simon thought. Too much darkness could kill, but too much light could blind” by Cassandra Clare is significant in understanding the concept revolving around this poem. The speaker seems to have trusted her husband too much that when he cheated on her, it came as a sudden shock. Sylvia Plath’s “The Rival” was designed to portray the poem’s aim, to explain that one shouldn’t trust too much since it can end up shattering one’s life. Too much of anything will only harm us. The most prominent way in which this aim was seen through is narration/structure, literal/figurative meaning and one point of allusion. Narration and structure were both effective in recognizing the poem’s aim. Utilizing the poem’s audience as the poet’s husband’s mistress, as well as using a semicolon stresses the poem’s aim. In stanza 3, the poet discusses the rival’ actions. She claims that the rival’s thoughts are sent with love, yet are also considered poisonous. “White and blank expansive as carbon monoxide” The poet demonstrates that the poem’s audience is the poet’s husband’s mistress through of the use of a simile. White is a carries a connotation of cold and lifeless, while, blank is a motif of death and also without life. Thus, the speaker compares the poem’s audience, her husband’s mistress, to carbon monoxide. Not only comparing her, but comparing the effect of carbon monoxide to the effect of her rival. It......

...BUYCO, GENEVIEVE P NS2 / 1:30-2:30 01249 / BA: 304 THEORIES OF THE ORIGIN OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM There have been two main views regarding the origin of the planets in our solar system. The first is that another star happened to pass near our sun, and drew off clouds of gases which then formed themselves into planets. This is the planetesimal group of theories. Astronomers are well aware of the fact that stars do not wander around through space, but that is how the theory went..  The other main viewpoint is that a swirling cloud of gas formed itself into our sun, planets, moons, comets, and asteroids. By 1940, all the various encounter or planetesimal theories had pretty much been discarded as hopeless, but, beginning in that decade, under the urging of *von Weizsacker, *Whipple, *Spitzer, *Urey, *Garnow, *Hoyle, *Kuiper, and others, an attempt has been made to bring astronomers back to some variation of the nebular (gas cloud) hypothesis. Their efforts have been surprisingly successful, in spite of the obvious physical principle that gas in outer space (as well as here on earth) never coagulates; it always spreads outward. Let us consider some of the major reasons the various theories of the origin of our solar system are more foolishness than fact. 1-Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and the eighth largest. Mercury is smaller in diameter than Ganymede and Titan but more massive. 2-Venus is the second planet from the Sun and the sixth largest. Venus' orbit is......

...understanding of the solar system ever since. (Sheila, 2010) Example 1: geocentric view  Greco-Roman mathematician and astronomer Ptolemy (c. AD 90 – c. AD 168) believed the movements of the sun, stars, and planets could be explained mathmatically.  He created a set of astronomical tables which he called his Handy Tables which allowed astronomers to calculate the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets. It also allowed astronomers to predict eclipses. (Gribben, J.)  He believed the universe was geocentric meaning the universe revolved around the Earth.  This view would with some minor changes hold until Copernicus published his theories in 1543. Example 2: A heliocentric view  In 1543 Nicolaus Copernicus published his book On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres. (Sheila, 2010)   In his book Copernicus proposed a heliocentric Universe meaning the earth revolved around the Sun.

Living on Another Planet

...GS1140/Problem Solving Theory Recap Report 1 The location chosen for living on another planet is the Moon. The Moon is the closet orbiting planet to Earth which would make traveling to the Moon more ideal. The Moon is 238,900 miles from Earth and the climate or weather on the Moon doesn’t exist because the Moon doesn’t have an atmosphere. The reason for living on the Moon would be to sustain the human race. Earth’s resources are being depleted at an alarming rate that will cause the Earth to be uninhabitable within the next 50-100 years. The Moon would provide us with the necessary resources and space needed to sustain human life. Location The location chosen for living on another planet is the Moon. Some of the key characteristics about the selected location: * Distance from the Sun 93,205,678 miles or 150 million km * Planet characteristics: No atmosphere, soil composed of maria, temperature’s during the day reach 107° C, temperature’s at night reach -153°C * ¼ the diameter of Earth * No liquid water on the planet The location selected for colonization would be between the light and dark side of the Moon. With no atmosphere on the Moon climate is not a factor. The Moon does however have two sides, a light side which is always exposed to the Sun, and a dark side which is never exposed to the Sun. Purpose The purpose for colonizing the Moon includes a few key factors that bring us to the selected planet: * Over population *......
