9780141389424: Northanger Abbey (The Penguin English Library)

The Penguin English Library Edition of Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

'To look almost pretty, is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been looking plain the first fifteen years of her life, than a beauty from her cradle can ever receive'

During an eventful season at Bath, young, naïve Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: flirtatious Isabella, who shares Catherine's love of Gothic romance and horror, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father's mysterious house, Northanger Abbey. There, her imagination influenced by novels of sensation and intrigue, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney. With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, this is the most youthful and and optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Product Description:

Northanger Abbey

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
