Northanger Abbey – Jane Austen

Opis towaru

While enjoying a six weeks’ stay in fashionable Bath, the young and callow Catherine Morland is introduced to the delights of high society. Thanks to a new literary diet of the sensational and the macabre, Catherine travels to Northanger Abbey fully expecting to become embroiled in a Gothic adventure of intrigue and suspense – and, once there, soon begins to form the most gruesome and improbable theories about the exploits of its occupants.An early work, but published posthumously, Northanger Abbey is a parody of the Gothic genre typified by the novels of Ann Radcliffe, as well as a witty comedy of manners in the style of Jane Austen’s later novels and, ultimately, an enchanting love story.

Northanger Abbey – Jane Austen

Opis towaru

Broadly comedic and brilliantly postmodern in its lampooning of a genre, the Jane Austen classic Northanger Abbey tells the story of Catherine Morland, a naive young woman whose perceptions of the world around her are greatly influenced by the romantic gothic novels to which she is addicted. When she moves to Bath she sees mystery and intrigue all around her, not least of all in Northanger Abbey itself, the home of General Tilney and his handsome son Henry, where Catherine suspects a sinister crime has occurred.

Gorgeously illustrated by the celebrated Hugh Thomson, this Macmillan Collector’s Library edition also includes an afterword by David Pinching.

Northanger Abbey – Jane Austen

Opis towaru

A witty exploration of the perils of mistaking fiction for reality, Jane Austen’s „Northanger Abbey” is edited with an introduction and notes by Marylin Butler in „Penguin Classics”. During an eventful season at Bath, young, naive Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: rude, boorish John Thorpe, his flirtatious sister Isabella, who shares Catherine’s love of sensational novels and intrigue, and sophisticated Eleanor and Henry Tilney, who invite her to their father’s mysterious house, Northanger Abbey. There, her imagination, influenced by Gothic romances, such as Ann Radcliffe’s „The Mysteries of Udolpho”, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney. With its broad comedy and irrepressible, impressionable heroine, this is the most youthful and optimistic of Jane Austen’s works. The „Penguin Classics” edition of „Northanger Abbey” is based on the first edition of 1818, and includes a chronology and additional suggestions for further reading. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature’s most famous women writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, „Pride and Prejudice”, at the age of 22. She was the author of „Sense and Sensibility”, „Pride and Prejudice”, „Emma”, „Persuasion”, „Mansfield Park” and „Northanger Abbey”. If you enjoyed „Northanger Abbey”, you may like Ann Radcliffe’s „The Mysteries of Udolpho”, also available in „Penguin Classics”. „The most perfect artist among women, the writer whose books are immortal”. (Virginia Woolf). „These modern editions are to be strongly recommended for their scrupulous texts, informative notes and helpful introductions”. (Brian Southam, The Jane Austen Society).

Northanger Abbey – Jane Austen

Opis towaru

‘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.
