Heathcliff as an antihero will bring suspense to the story. Heathcliff's character keeps the story going. He takes revenge against anything that prevents him from being with the woman he loves. Heathcliff brings both the evil and the good. His character is unpredictable because the reader thinks that after he return he will use his power and wealth for good to gain back what he lost to Edgar Linton. Heathcliff's character gives another side to society. It doesn't convey man are either good or bad, it states they are both. The usage of antihero was a new concept used during this period. This new type of protagonist was quite intriguing.
