Northanger Abbey (reissue)
by: Jane Austen

Penguin Group, February 2008

Reissue edition - originally sold to a publisher (Crosby & Co.) in 1803, but was not published until 1817.
The novel is modeled after the day's popular romances and Gothic thrillers, which it then proceeds to ridicule. In this dramatization of Jane Austen's earliest novel, the heroine, Catherine Morland, is taken by her aunt to Bath, where she encounters the social whirl denied her at home. She befriends Isabella Thorpe and her boorish brother John. She meets the charming but eccentric Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor. And all the time her head is full of the Gothic fantasies of Mrs Radcliffe's Mysteries of Udolpho, scenes from which will keep intruding into the daily life of Bath society. When Catherine accepts an invitation to the Tilney's country seat at Northanger Abbey, lurid images of Udolpho threaten to overwhelm her. Until, as in all the best Jane Austen, Catherine finally gets her man.
Characters:

Mr. Henry Tilney and Miss Catherine Morland
