Charles Dickens and Emily Bronte are among the greatest novelists in the 19th century in English literature. Great expectations and Wuthering Heights can respectively be regarded as their representative works. In these novels both Heathcliff’s love for Catherine in Wuthering Heights and Pip’s love for Estella in Great expectations are considered as obsessive love.Obsessive love is a form of love where one person is emotionally obsessed with another. Obsessive love can lead to dangerous consequences. John D. Moore in his book, Confusing Love with Obsession describes the concept of "Obsessive Love Wheel" (OLW) which is a hypothetical circle. The wheel illustrates the four stages of Obsessive Relational Progression as part of Relational Dependency (RD). Moore suggests that for people who are afflicted with love addiction, codependency, and etc, their relationships often follow the pattern of the wheel. This obsessive love wheel is divided in four phases as: attraction phase, anxious phase, obsessive phase and destructive phase. In the above mentioned novels the characters Heathcliff and Pip followed the obsessive love wheel pattern. This paper is an attempt to examine the characters’ obsessive love through the psychological phases and how its destructive effect causes the downfall of two of the most powerful literary characters of the British literature, Pip in Great expectation and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights.
