This thesis analyzes an ongoing puzzle in Wuthering Heights. Why establish Mr. Lockwood's early narration only to destabilize it with Nellie Dean's competing narration? A survey of critical responses to each of these narrators provides several possible answers (some of the competing with each other). Ultimately this analysis sets the foundation for why this question matters and how deftly Brontë uses dual narration to generate productive tension in this masterful text.
