Northanger Abbey (Cumulus Classics)

Jane Austen, Henry Thomas Austen, A J Penn

Catherine Morland is an imaginative, seventeen year-old who has a love of reading, particularly Gothic novels. Visiting Bath for the first time, she experiences adventure in fashionable Regency society, meeting all manner of new companions and acquaintances. But it is her encounter with Henry Tilney that takes Catherine on a totally different (and eventful) course - one that proves to her the real world can be far more challenging and complicated than anything Catherine might ever read about in one of her novels. Jane Austen’s classic tale of Gothic mystery, self-discovery, friendship and romance is a characteristic look by its authoress at human nature that is still as entertaining and timeless as it is humorous, unpredictable and touching. This Cumulus Classics edition includes a new introduction and note on the text, a biographical tribute to Jane Austen written by Henry Austen (her older brother) and a message by the writer heralding the publication of her book. The unabridged text is based upon the first edition, originally published in December 1817. Two hundred years since it was first written, Jane Austen’s story of Catherine Morland, one of literature’s most original heroines, continues to enchant readers and aspiring heroines (as well as heroes) of all ages everywhere.
