Here Are 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.

Women in Literature Who Deserved Better Fates

Literature is full of countless incredible female characters, and many of them are able to make a mark on the worlds they inhabit. Some, though, aren’t so lucky. Some don’t get the happy endings they deserve. Let’s take a look at some wronged women from classic literature.

 

Lydia Bennet – Pride & Prejudice

Okay, so things work out a LITTLE less tragic for this version of Lydia, but overall she should’ve had more help. All those sisters, and no one to protect her from Wickham. She carries on a whole secret affair and actually runs away with him, and no one’s any the wiser. Lydia is only fifteen, and even though Wickham is eventually forced to marry her, basically satisfying everyone, she deserved so much better than that user. It’s honestly hard to watch. Know your value, girl!

 

 

Morgan Le Fay – Arthurian Legend

Morgan Le Fay has been reimagined countless times since her legendary origins, and it seems like every time she gets a little more evil. Sure, from the beginning she was ambiguous, and who could blame her? Of course, she was always ambiguous, but so were her motives. The supposed half sister of King Arthur, and possible lover of Merlin, it’s not clear how Morgan gained her powers. She’s married off almost as soon as Arthur is born. Nevertheless, she’s a powerful character, and doesn’t need to be vilified.

 

 

Ophelia – Hamlet

Ophelia is maybe the classic example. What did she ever do to anybody? Okay, so she isn’t perfect, but being constantly yelled at and gaslit by the rest of the cast would make anyone a little jittery. Sometimes Hamlet acts like he cares about her, sometimes he doesn’t. On several occasions he’s extremely, senselessly cruel. Her father is a little better. Ophelia just gets tossed around by the rest of the plot, trying to live her life when no one has the least interest in her. She deserved a lot better.

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.
