Independent publishing company, Necropolis Press, has released their fourth publication featuring original cover art by Monica Veraguth. The latest title, “Wuthering Heights,” by English novelist and poet Emily Brontë, is part of the “Classroom Classics” series by Necropolis Press. Brontë subsequently died the next year and “Wuthering Heights” became her first and only published novel. “Wuthering Heights” is the sixteenth publication in the series and joins great classics from the likes of Bram Stoker and Edgar Allen Poe among many others in the fantasy and dark fiction genres.
Set in the Yorkshire moors, “Wuthering Heights” presents the story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliffe, whose doomed love destroys everyone around them. Early reviews of “Wuthering Heights” were mixed between those who praised the sweeping scope and vivid imagination of the novel and those who found the story overly dark and full of unlikable characters who constantly exhibit hatred and cruelty. This is certainly a dark novel, but one which has become a masterpiece of English literature. Features: Original Cover Art Contextual Introduction Annotations Study Questions.
Veraguth’s previously illustrated classic titles include, “The Thing From the Lake,” Eleanor M. Ingram; and “The House on the Borderland”, William Hope Hodgson. As well as an inside illustration for “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Just prior to “Wuthering Heights” being released, Necropolis Press released an original novel titled “The Last Post” by Jim Dietz that Veraguth also provided cover art for.
