9780007368600: Northanger Abbey (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘Northanger Abbey! These were thrilling words, and wound up Catherine's feelings to the highest point of ecstasy.’

Considered the most light-hearted and satirical of Austen’s novels, Northanger Abbey tells the story of an unlikely young heroine Catherine Morland. While staying in Bath, Catherine meets Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor who invite her to their family estate, Northanger Abbey. A fan of Gothic Romance novels, naive Catherine is soon letting her imagination run wild in the atmospheric abbey, fuelled by her friendship with the vivacious Isabella Thorpe.

It is only when the realities of life set in around her that Catherine’s fantastical world is shattered. A coming-of-age novel, Austen expertly parodies the Gothic romance novels of her time and reveals much about her unsentimental view of love and marriage in the eighteenth century.

Review:

"It is tempting to argue İthat¨ Austen opted to initiate her career with "Northanger Abbey" because in addition to being a good novel it alone was also a manifesto of her artistic program . . . "Northanger Abbey" is a delightful novel, but also a serious one, and the first completely to master the stylistic method that would become the hallmark of its author's art: irony." -from the Introduction by Claudia L. Johnson
