My totally non-expert theory as to why _Wuthering Heights_ is still 
around after all this time:

English professors find it easy to teach.  They get tired of students 
whining about whatever choice the instructor made last semester in 
books, and want something that is easy for students to read and 
comprehend that they can create lectures around with a minimum of fuss 
and bother.  Then they can stand back and with a straight face call it a 
classic example of the gothic novel.
