Product Description

In this spirited, early-19th-century comedy of manners, Catherine Morland meets and falls in love with handsome Henry Tilney while on holiday in Bath. Henry's father, thinking Catherine is well-to-do, invites her to be a guest at Northanger Abbey, the family's country estate. Catherine's vivid imagination and love of Gothic romances soon cause her to view the residence as a house of nightmarish horror, an aspect of the book that gleefully parodies the fantastic Gothic romances by Mrs. Radcliffe and other popular writers of the period. Catherine's fears prove groundless, of course, but she is ordered out of the house when Henry's tyrannical father discovers she is not wealthy. Henry follows her and persuades her to marry him. Distinguished by its satirical wit, brilliant comedy, and complex but subtle views of human nature and morality, Northanger Abbey is a staple of English literature courses. Unabridged.
