Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights)- embodiment of Satan, or just a tortured soul through discrimination?

Give your reasons why- personally I think there is an argument for both?

Well i personally would sway more towards a tortured soul as his early life was only to be described as hellish. Being constantly beaten both physically and mentally by someone takes its toll on ur life - you childhood defines who you are. Hareton degraded him in every aspect of the word and as Catherine says that was the reason why she did not marry him - which is something that really hurt Heathcliff. . On the other handr, some choices Heathcliff made were beyond his childhood - instead of turning his life around after he had left wuthering heights he chose a life of revenge himself!

Hope this helps in some way :)
