At the conclusion of a dark and cruel tale, Wuthering Heights finally offers a glimpse of hope for the future. After Heathcliff dies under mysterious circumstances, Hareton and Cathy Linton are engaged to marry and planning to move to the Grange. Heathcliff is buried next to Cathy and Edgar, and there are rumors that his ghost has been seen walking on the moors. Nonetheless, when Lockwood goes to visit the gravesite, he finds it impossible to “imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth.” The ending thus offers the possibility that Cathy and Heathcliff are finally united, but there are multiple possibilities for their long-awaited union. For Lockwood and Nelly, from a traditional Christian perspective, Heathcliff has finally achieved the peace in death that he could never find while he was alive, and he rests comfortably. However, the supernatural hints of “Heathcliff and a woman, yonder” give a competing version in which Heathcliff and Cathy still exist on the earth in some form. Free from the societal constraints of their lives, Cathy and Heathcliff might be finally able to wander the moors together.
