An examination of Emily Bronte's poetry is crucial to an understanding of the religious discourse in her novel Wuthering Heights. The poetry's use of biblical tropes and topoi relating to the Holy Spirit is closely linked to Bronte's emphasis on the primal nature of religious experience over and above its formal expressions. These same concerns play an important role in Wuthering Heights, especially with respect to the Heath cliff-Cathy relationship and the idea of transgression. This article will begin, then, with a survey of the poetry and move from there to a brief consideration of the novel.
