Introduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent.

Northanger Abbey tells the story of a young girl, Catherine Morland who leaves her sheltered, rural home to enter the busy, sophisticated world of Bath in the late 1790s. Austen observes with insight and humour the interaction between Catherine and the various characters whom she meets there, and tracks her growing understanding of the world about her.

In this, her first full-length novel, Austen also fixes her sharp, ironic gaze on other kinds of contemporary novel, especially the Gothic school made famous by Ann Radcliffe. Catherine's reading becomes intertwined with her social and romantic adventures, adding to the uncertainties and embarrassments she must undergo before finding happiness.

“Jane Austen - what's not to like!”

I like the Everyman hardback collection. They are well put together and reasonably priced. The typeface is clear and easy to read.

This particular novel is early Jane Austen, not quite as accomplished as some of her... More

Beautifully presented and a perfect addition to my collection. I love how it has maps and images and a bookmark attached. However my only complaint would be that in the picture it comes across as being light pink and... More
