Abstract and Keywords

This article analyzes the poetry of Emily Brontë. It begins with a discussion of her novel, Wuthering Heights. It then examines the poems, ‘The Death of A. G. A.’, ‘The Prisoner (A Fragment)’, ‘Remembrance’, ‘To Imagination’, and ‘Lines’. In these poems, readers witness the scenery and performance of betrayal and revenge and unreconciled emotions; worlds of crime and torture that are nonetheless ‘civilized’.

Keywords: Victorian poetry, Wuthering Heights, The Death of A. G. A., The Prisoner, Remembrance, To Imagination, Lines
