Description of this Book

Begun in 1798, accepted by a publisher in 1803 and published posthumously in 1818, Austen's shortest major work, Northanger Abbey pokes fun at the improbable plots and characters of the then fashionable and popular Gothic novel. It concerns Jane Austen's favourite theme, that of a young woman and her initiation into the complexities of adult social life. Part gothic novel pastiche, part romance and part typical Austen-style novel of social class and wealth, Northanger Abbey is short but packed. Catherine Morland embarks on a journey from the world of books via her relationship with Henry Tilney and her stay at the vast Northanger Abbey, into the real world. Her route to maturity is a cruel one, as she comes to realise that not everyone is out to make her into the heroine she would so dearly love to become.
