The novel is written in a limited third person point of view. The point of view is limited to a single character, in this case Catherine Linton, the main character. This limit means that only Catherine's thoughts and actions are reported on through the point of view. The narration never wanders into the minds of other characters, nor does it report on events the main character does not have personal knowledge of. Catherine is the only one who shares her thoughts with the reader, the only one who reports her actions, and the only one the reader sees reacting to the actions of other characters.
