Chapter 31 Summary

Mr. Lockwood is feeling much better and decides to move out of Thrushgrove Cross and spend the next six months in London. He goes to Wuthering Heights to tell Heathcliff his plans. Mr. Lockwood promises that he will continue paying rent for the full year, as agreed upon, but that Heathcliff may find himself another tenet.

While he is at Wuthering Heights waiting for Heathcliff he passes a letter from Ellen to Cathy. Cathy tells him that she would like to write back but she has no paper. She has even been denied books. She confesses that she had searched Hareton's room and found some books. She tells Mr. Lockwood and Hareton, that the books are wasted on him as he does not know how to read well. Hareton removes the books from his room, offers them to Cathy and upon her denial, burns them.
