Northanger Abbey (1817) is a parody of the gothic novels that were fashionable in Austens' day. It follows the straightforward and innocent young Catherine Morland, who comes to Fullerton on the request of her neighbours. An avid reader of romantic novels, her utopian world is destroyed when she is forced to tackle the bitter realities of life.
