Publisher's Description

Jane Austen’s first novel, Northanger Abbey—published posthumously in 1818—tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion. Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical Northanger Abbey pokes fun at the gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.

This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the first edition of 1818.

    This review was written for Northanger Abbey.
    Passable satire of day-dreams and wild imagination fuelled by romantic Gothic literature. Opposite of ugly, filthy cesspool which is modern horror genre, these dreamy books would make sleazy Stephen King to tear his hair!
