It is interesting to consider with the Bronte sisters how the novels reflect the lives of their authors. By all accounts, Emily Bronte was much more Romantic (with a capital "R") than her sister, and also much more focussed on the Yorkshire Moors, where the Brontes grew up. She was desperately homesick whenever she left her beloved Moors, and this certainly gives rise to one of the differences between the novels. Wuthering Heights is very narrow in its geographical setting - all the action happens in a very small patch of the moors, and when characters leave, it is as if they have fallen off the edge of the world - they disappear from the action until they return. This is in contrast with Jane Eyre, where the protagonist definitely moves around and the action occurs in 5 different locations.
