Songs For Every Book: Wuthering Heights

E.T. by Katy Perry = Heathcliff and Catherine’s relationship

Both are filled with a lot of passion and otherworldliness.  Heathcliff is also someone to be afraid of, like the song suggests.

Heathcliff’s desire to be haunted also has parallels with Perry’s language:

Heathcliff: “Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!”

Perry: “Infect me with your love and fill me with your poison”…
“Wanna be a victim, ready for abduction”
