Here’s Our Favorite ‘Wuthering Heights’ Memes!

Wuthering Heights is a gorgeous and outrageous novel about ridiculous people, and it’s frankly amazing this list isn’t a hundred entries long. What’s to say that hasn’t been said before? Sure, the book is a little bit of a bummer, but these memes are spicy and fun.

 

Just a casual drop by

Y’know, the way you just casually drop by post-death because you’re obsessed with someone. We’ve all been there, in the cold, hovering outside our ex’s window, screaming to come in to our old house. Relatable, right? It can’t just be me. And Cathy.

 

Sliding into her DMs

I gotta say, this does not seem like the way to anyone’s heart. I’m not really an expert, but I think the truly appalling results support my point, there are better ways to hit on someone than to marry someone else and then reject their ghost.

 

 

Hot takes

I mean, they’re complex, but they’re definitely not good, and each and every one of them is a complete disaster. Just, the choices. The way they treat each other. Everyone is too much and I dig it. What crazy, lovable jerks.

 

 

Maybe chill

Honestly I just think someone should move on. Or get it together. Or something. These people’s choices are silly. I’m just saying, a lot of people’s lives all get scrambled and knotted, and everyone could have just been happy. They could have been happy!

 

She’s extinct

Look how round! Too bad she died. The real Cathy was definitely hit by a meteor or something, right? All that height’s going to help her, she can just tap her nose on Heathcliff’s window, and he can pat her head like Jurassic Park.

Top Five Emma Memes

Sure, Emma’s not a perfect character, but she is trying to help, even if she… really shouldn’t. It’s not like anyone lets her get away with her nonsense, anyway. Insert growth meme. But between meddling, genuinely helping, and finally figuring out her own life, here are some really memeable moments we can’t let go by unnoticed.

 

When you love unsolicited advice

I mean, she wasn’t, but relatable, amirite? We’ve all known someone who basically runs their relationship like madlibs. Poor Harriet, though. She thinks Emma is so cool and wise, just because she acts cool and wise. Maybe by the end, but certainly not here.

 

When your friend always knows what’s best

Stay out of it, Emma. The guy you picked isn’t exactly a gentleman, at least not in action. I’m all for helping your friend find the best guy for her, but maybe the first criterion should be at least the slightest bit of interest. I’m just saying.

 

 

Feeling the funeral spirit?

Okay, so maybe not the most appropriate tone to strike at a funeral, but it’s understandable. Sure, someone died, but what about true love? I ask you. Everything’s coming up Fairfax. And Churchill. And honestly even Woodhouse. Frank’s aunt really did the story a solid.

 

A good nemesis is hard to find

Have you ever had a nemesis? Because let me tell you, it is great. Sure, she looks angry, and maybe she is, but you can definitely enjoy a good rivalry. The most important part of having a mortal enemy is to have fun and be yourself.

 

 

When he gives super helpful advice

What a quality take, KNIGHTLEY. Just what everybody wants, your opinion on women. Okay, so he probably didn’t mean any harm. Still pretty insulting though. I guess we’ll forgive him, since he’s less of a jerk by the end. Insert growth meme again. This books sure has character development.

Six Iconic Shakespeare Memes

Shakespeare’s plays are whackier and whackier the more you read. Confusion, dirty jokes, and some pretty unbelievable things happening at sea. So many things are just begging to be memed. It’s a shame memes weren’t even invented until four hundred years after his death. At least we can give his works the meming they deserve retroactively.

What an icon. Shakespeare invented countless words, including the word countless. But let’s get to plot nonsense.

I confess, my love of hamlet shows a little here, but who can blame me? There’s a reason it’s so widely read. Plus, Hamlet himself is such an incredibly quotable character, who wouldn’t make a meme? Like his most famous line.

But it’s not just the things he says when he’s alone and feeling emo. Hamlet comes face to face with almost everyone in the play, in a way that changes it around him, even when he’s not staging mini murder plays.

I think we can all agree Ophelia deserved better. Who does he think he is, a prince? He-hem. Usually tossing a girl around a room (in some adaptations) is not the way to her heart. But you know what’s actually a worse seduction tactic?

Yikes. That’s one way to get her alone. Not one I can condone, though. Alright, enough about Denmark. We could go on like this forever.

Let’s talk about history. No, it’s not the picture of an impaled bottle of Caesar salad dressing, as iconic as that is. It’s not the only Julius Caesar meme.

What happens when you kill the one fun friend? Then again, I guess all getting together to stab someone could be considered a party of sorts. It’s certainly one way to bond with your coworkers. Work outing? Tried it and I CANNOT recommend.

I had to include a Much Ado About Nothing meme, because it’s my all time fave, and this is my favorite adaptation. Plus, just about every character is an absolute meme, start to finish.

Seven Spectacular Jane Eyre Memes

Jane Eyre is a wonderful, compelling book. It’s also silly, competitive, and bonkers insulting. Let’s make it even sillier with the best the nonsense internet has to offer.

 

 

So you get this job in the middle of nowhere. Sure, they didn’t give you a lot of details, but at least nothing else is weird about it, and your new boss is super nice. Your name is not Jane Eyre.

Life’s hard for an orphan, but Jane isn’t really one to complain, she kind of just takes it as it comes. It’s just as well, because even aside from her aunt hating her, people don’t seem to feel the need to be very nice to her, even our ‘hero’ and the rest of the people she meets at work.

But boy do they. And she does too. Get some self confidence, girl! Sure, Rochester might not flirt like a normal person, but that’s no reflection on you. Being constantly downtrodden doesn’t mean you can’t live your best life! Why, when I was your age, I hadn’t received any proposals of marriage, and you have two! Sure, one is your cousin, and the other is already married, but ‘plain’ is either false or irrelevant. Mostly.

We need a spin off. Did anyone else have about a million questions about Blanche? She’s pretty and popular, sure, and Rochester nearly marries her, but from Jane’s perspective, she’s sort of a force of nature. Personally, I want to know more.

It’s like things can never be easy for Jane. Even when she gets what she wants it goes sideways.

So fun! Sure, it’s a bit of a rocky start, but marriage is complicated. I think those crazy kids can make it. Probably. If there’s something crazy that brings them back together. But what are the chances of that?

 

 

Image via Tumblr

 

We’re talking ARSON. We’re talking FALSE IMPRISONMENT. We’re talking BLINDNESS. How does Rochester feel so guilty but also act so cold? The man’s an enigma. Guilty as he may feel about Bertha, though, he moves on fast. You didn’t have to be so weird this whole time, man! You could’ve been happy!

I’d love to know what’s going on in that guy’s head. I sort of picture it like beauty and the beast where he’s just angry in some room alone, slamming doors.

Lot’s of ups and downs, but all’s well that ends well (is this a happy ending?), I guess.

Six Galaxy Brain Tweets from SparkNotes

If you’re anything like me, SparkNotes has always been there when you need it. Now, they’re not only helping you pass your classes, but also serving you the spiciest of literature memes. They’re all pure gold, but here are just a few.

 

 

Theseus or not, YOU. ARE. VALID.

 

 

Unfortunately there’s no third option, so if you want to set the Minotaur up on a blind date with your friend, you’re kind of out of luck. Otherwise, you’re good though. What color do your sails need to be if you didn’t slay the Minotaur but you’re seeing it this Friday?

 

 

 

Some people appreciate attitude

 

 

I mean, he’s already in love with her by that point, but you get the idea. He’s always talking about how mean she is, and then boom, marry me! Of course, the same could be said of her. What a stressful ship. Still though, you know, I’m on it.

 

 

 

Want to delay your problems forever?

 

 

Curiosity may not have killed the cat, but it sure killed Dorian Gray. Still, he lived a while looking fresh and evil in stead of old and evil, so if you’ve got the attic space, why not? In this economy though? The thing’s going under the bed.

 

 

 

Do You haunt an old building? Then you need…

 

 

 

Sure, you might not be the most conventionally attractive, but your secret underground hideaway is second to none, and isn’t it what’s on the inside that matters? What’s under the surface? (What’s directly  under the opera house?)

 

 

 

People can’t know we sit! And… murder!

 

 

Maybe not as relatable as the original video, but definitely a strong mood, and just as futile. The body stays right under the floorboards after all. If only there’d been seashells on the doorknobs, maybe things would have gone better.

 

 

 

Hindsight is… Ah man I botched it.

 

 

Don’t look back in anger (or at all). Going to the depths of hell is a nice gesture, and who doesn’t like musicians, but you’ve gotta stick the landing by actually fulfilling the deal. Just one opinion, but if both of you don’t come back alive, that’s a bad date.
