Moors...her own and she....theirs.

Note: I am reading "Sunset Song" by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. The mother says to her daughter, " Oh, Chris, my lass, there are better things than your books or studies or loving or bedding, there's the countryside your own, you its, in the days when you're neither bairn nor woman".

Emily, the moors, her own and she, theirs.........the heath and the cliff.......the eternal rocks, the bones of life itself.

"I believe Emily says she would not willing trade her earthly home for any promised life after death.....she seems to accept an eternal rest in the earth, or an eternal awareness shared with the earth."
Emily's earthly home, the only one she loved and owned. That ruthless honesty is revealed in Wuthering Heights. Emily was many things...all double...animal and mystic. But she wanted to live on the earth, however flawed.
