Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey (Paperback)

By Austen, Jane

The earliest of her six major novels, NorthangerAbbey remained unpublished until after Jane Austen ' s death. A deliciously witty satire of popular Gothic romances, it is perhaps Austen ' s lightest, most delightful excursion into a young woman ' s world. Catherine Morland, an un...likely heroine -- unlikely because she is so ordinary -- forsakes her English village for the pleasures and perils of Bath. There, among a circle of Austen ' s wonderfully vain, dissembling, and fashionable characters, she meets a potential suitor, Henry Tilney. But with her imagination fueled by melodramatic novels, Catherine turns a visit to his home, Northanger Abbey, into a hunt for dark family secrets. The result is a series of hilarious social gaffes and harsh awakenings that for all of Austen ' s youthful exuberance nevertheless conveys her mature vision of literature and life -- and the consequences of mistaking one for the other.
