What are the financial circumstances of Hindley's death and the consequences for Hareton?
Answers 1Add Yours
Hindley left no inheritance for his son, the family home had been mortgaged and unpaid.
From the text:
In that manner Hareton, who should now be the first gentleman in the neighbourhood, was reduced to a state of complete dependence on his father's inveterate enemy; and lives in his own house as a servant, deprived of the advantage of wages: quite unable to right himself, because of his friendlessness, and his ignorance that he has been wronged.
