Supernatural occurrences show the abnormal behaviors of nature. In Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte uses the abnormal as an introduction to the novel and shows the desires of characters in the novel. We meet Lockwood in the beginning of the novel. He had absolutely no clue on the history of the Lintons and Earnshaws. A few days after renting Thrushcross Grange, he visits old Heathcliff and stays at Wuthering Heights. There he finds books of the first Catherine. It was at Wuthering Heights where Lockwood had the terrifying dream where Catherines bony hands grabbed him.

The story of Wuthering Heights presented many paranormal experiences to show the feelings and desires of The ghost that inspired Lockwood to learn about the story of Wuthering Heights was Catherine. She grabbed his hands through the window and explained her destination. Im come home: Id lost my way on the moor! (Pg. 30)1 This shocked Lockwood greatly because he had no idea who Catherine was except from her diary. Heathcliff comes and orders Lockwood to leave the room. He himself spoke to the air as if the ghost was really there.
