My sentence comes from one of my all time favourites, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. Here Nelly describes Heathcliff’s eyes to him,

“Do you mark those two lines between your eyes; and those thick brows, that, instead of rising arched, sink in the middle; and that couple of black fiends, so deeply buried, who never open their windows boldly, but lurk glinting under them, like devil’s spies?”



    1. Thanks for visiting!

      I love Wuthering Heights. It is a true classic. Today Wuthering Heights is regarded as a mere love story but in its day it was path-breaking work.
