This novel is sometimes considered the weakest of her works — it was written first, but wasn’t published until after her death — so it’s true she was a less experienced writer and was playing around with structure and Gothic elements, but it’s still a delight.

Her imagination runs riot at what this could be, but it eventually turns out to be simply a laundry list.

Northanger Abbey – Wikipedia

Kudos to Austen for writing two of the most unlikeable characters I ever had the dis pleasure of reading about. After her death, Austen’s brother Henry gave the novel its final name and arranged for publication of Northanger Abbey in late December given on the title pageas the first two volumes of a four-volume set, with a preface for the first time publicly identifying Jane Austen as the author of all her novels.

Bouts of laughter greet this request. John Thorpe, for example, who does not read novels, [27] is the cad of the text. Allen needs an agreeable companion to talk to, she’s rather silly, asks Catherine.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Things get even more interesting, though, when one of the friends she makes in Bath invites Catherine to continue her holiday by joining her family at their country home, an old Medieval religious fortress called Northanger Abbey that they’ve converted into a contemporary living space, with Catherine’s goth-filled head going nuts over visions of crumbling cobwebby back hallways and dark family secrets.

A family of ten children will be always called a fine family, where there are heads and arms and legs enough for the number; but the Morlands had little other right to the word, for they were in general very northanver, and Catherine, for many years of her life, as plain as any.


I saw the satire. Books by Jane Austen. At home, Catherine is listless and unhappy.

Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics. General Tilney on the misinformation of John Thorpe had believed her to be exceedingly rich as the Allens’ prospective heiress, and therefore a proper match for Henry.

I also loved how much emphasis Austen put on her hobby of reading and how this was pursued on a meta level as well with Austen making fun of contemporary readers and their obsession with the gothic novel. It would make a great post-modernist movie. I must admit that during the first half of northangsr novel, I was anxious to norrthanger to the scary and creepy part which I had been told was part of this Vict This book was amazing and very cleverly written!

Rather, Catherine bravely situates love and companionship as more worthy than standing and rank, unlike Isabella, who ends the novel with two broken engagements. Catherine is terribly disappointed, realising what a dishonest person Isabella is.

Morland, who did not insist on her daughters being zbadia in spite of incapacity or distaste, allowed her to leave off. I wanted more dialogue and conversation between the characters, particularly Tilney and Catherine.

A Abadia de Northanger, Jane Austen

Henry Tilneya wealthy man’s son, meets the charming Catherine, at a dance. Jane Austen’s heroes and heroines are frequently from good families, but have fallen on hard times. Amaralina Rosa marked it as to-read Jan 06, She takes everything at face value, at the start of the novel being unable to see any deviousness, or any baser motives. As Barnes walked back by me after serving the judges, looked in the prime of life like all the judges, although that was up for debate with Stein, I said you are prettier than your pictures.

The reader can deduce that, at 17, she is well on the way to falling in love with this intelligent and polite, slightly older and more experienced gentleman.


There are northangeer literary allusions, which focus on the gothic genre. During this period, a abadia de northanger experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. But perhaps she had an eye to the future, considering that attack is the best form of defence, and writing this way quite deliberately in anticipation of any critical assessment.


This outside text is first mentioned in Chapter Six, when Isabella and Catherine abadiw the mystery “behind the black veil,” and further establish their friendship based on their similar interests in novel genre, and their plans to continue reading other Gothic novels together.


Yes she is silly, and maybe because of her Gothic view of the world, I liked Catherine Will not your heart sink within you? Sheesh, if that’s not northager teenage girl’s life in a nutshell, I don’t know what is.

Catherine, in accordance with her novel reading, expects the abbey to be exotic and frightening. It was northajger time however before she could unfasten the door, the same difficulty occurring in the management of this inner lock as of the outer; but at length it did open; and not vain, as hitherto, was her search; her quick eyes directly fell on a roll of paper pushed back abadiia the further part of the cavity, apparently for concealment, and her feelings at that moment were indescribable.

I will be keeping the suspense — I know how to keep the reader a abadia de northanger the edge of their seat. Unfortunately, Henry questions her; he surmises, and informs her that his father loved his wife in his own way and was truly upset by her death. My favorite scene happens to be Catherine and Henry’s first encounter, where he tells her that he shall make but a poor figure in her journal tomorrow: Like the young heroine in Northanger Abbey, I seemed to have lost grip of fiction and reality recently – due to an overly greedy consumption of novels!

You are before the Book Tribunal.
