Edgar is trying to protect his daughter from the big bad world outside Thrushcross Grange. This confinement makes her restless and yearning to explore the moors and  rock formation called Penistone Crags. Edgar refuses to let her go so, at the first sign of escape, Cathy goes straight to Wuthering Heights.
