Chapter: The Victorian Age
Emily Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights. That is, understandably, way too long to shove into the Norton Anthology, so instead we just get some poems. Now, what I find fascinating about this particular poem isn't the poem itself (though it's naturally quite good), it's that the poem is weirdly incorrect on the internet.
Multiple sources, including the link below, follow the complete poem with a note (uncredited) by Charlotte Bronte, which then leads into an entirely different poem. I'll admit, they pair up pretty good, but the fact that this is going around as the complete Night-Wind is pretty goofy. I managed to find this excerpt on Google Books that demonstrates where the "new" lines originated. Thanks a lot, internet.
