For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton s William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant s essay on film... View more info

In Earth Journal, John Caddy advocates poetry as a physical act--a morning practice or devotion, a decision to record quickly and without forethought the direct, momentary experience of each new day. Presenting a selection of his daily poems covering the seasons of the year, he provides commentary and instruction for individuals, teachers, and students about starting their own daily earth journals. "Whenever you write," Caddy says, "you surprise yourself saying likable things that you did not plan." The unfiltered inscription of each day opens the senses, integrating the writer with the wh...
