We looked at different explanations of the word uncanny and from these we tried to understand the word in our own way. These included:
*The barrier between the known and the unknown
*Familiar and foreign (teetering on the brink)
*A feeling of unfamiliarity and uncertainty
*The uncanny of the monumental
*The heimlich: homely and the unheimlich: unhomely
We also had to comment on the view that Wuthering Heights is filled with uncanny and disturbing occurences.
