16 Cathy becomes a [w]widow
eg: My neighbour is a widow.
1800—1881 On the evening after the burial, Heathcliff came to fetch
eg: Will you fetch the children from school?
'Why not let her stay here with me?' I begged
'I'm looking for someone to rent
the Grange from me,' he answered. 'You'll stay on here as housekeeper, Ellen, but Cathy must come to Wuthering Heights. From now on she'll have to work for her food.'
'I shall work,' replied Cathy. 'And I'll look after Linton. He's all I've got to love in the world. I'm just sorry for you, Mr Heathcliff. You have nobody to love you! You are as lonely and miserable
as the devil! Nobody will cry for you when you die! I'm glad
I'm not you!'
解析：be sorry for 为……难过、对……表示同情
eg: I'm so sorry for your unfortunate experiences.
'Go and get your clothes, you wicked
girl,' he said. 'We'll be leaving in a few minutes.' When she had gone, he walked across the room to look at the picture of Cathy's mother, Catherine, which was hanging
on the wall.
eg: She took off her overcoat and hanged it on the hook.
'Do you know what I did yesterday, Ellen?' he said, turning quickly away from the picture. 'I went to the churchyard
, and asked the man who was digging
Edgar's grave to open the lid of Catherine's coffin
for me. Her face looked just the same! I could not stop looking at her. When the man closed the lid
, I broke open one side of her coffin, the side away from Edgar's grave, and covered it up with earth. And I bribed
the man to bury me there when I die, next to her, and to take the side of my coffin away too, so that I shall have her in my arms, not Edgar!'
eg: The judge took a bribe from the defendant.
'You were very wicked, Mr Heathcliff, to disturb the dead!'
