Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen Summary

'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. AUTHOR Jane Austen (16 December 1775 - 18 July 1817) was an English novelist, whose realism, biting social commentary and masterly use of free indirect speech, burlesque, and irony have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to Austen's development as a professional writer. Austen's artistic apprenticeship lasted from her teenage years until she was about thirty-five years old. During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried and then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. During Austen's lifetime, because she chose to publish anonymously, her works brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews.

The Parodies of Gothic Conventions in "Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen by Magdalena Przytarska Summary

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1, University of Gdansk, course: English Literature, language: English, abstract: The parody of Gothicism emerged as a reaction against its conventions, just as Gothic novel itself was directed against the rationality of Neoclassicism. At first, the Gothic novel gained great interest of the readers, the genre developed rapidly and many writers, like Clara Reeve, Mary Shelley or Charles Maturin contributed to this kind of fiction. However, the set of conventions established by Horace Walpole and then developed by Mrs. Radcliffe, became a point of reference for Jane Austen to create a novel titled Northanger Abbey, which became an outstanding parody of the conventions. Thus, Jane Austen reused many Gothic elements, retold the story in a parodying way in order to show the silliness and artificiality of the genre.

In the Watsons, Emma Watson is a disenfranchised outsider in her family. Sanditon sketches a restless world of speculation and real estate as Mr. Parker devotes himself to transforming his quiet village into a bustling resort for the wealthy.

Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey": Is Catherine Morland an Ideal Heroine? by Anna Miller Summary

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Tubingen, language: English, abstract: Content I. Introduction II. Analysis and Interpretation 1. Catherine's Qualifications 2. Catherine's Weaknesses III. Conclusion IV. Bibliography I. Introduction In the British fiction of the nineteenth century female protagonists were especially outstanding and not only used by Jane Austen, who wrote about Elizabeth Bennet, Emma Woodhouse or Catherine Morland, just to name a few of them, but also by Sir Walter Scott with his heroine Jeanie Deans (cf. Morgan 559). Many other authors of the nineteenth century chose a heroine as a main character and not a hero, even if there are very well men participating in the story, but they only have a minor role and represent the counterpart to the women (cf. Morgan 559). Now the question may arise why especially in that century women played the major role in the novels whereas before and after that the protagonists had mostly been male (cf. Morgan 560). (...)Instead, it is to take a closer look at one of these heroines, which is Catherine Morland. The aim of this work is to decide whether she is an ideal heroine or not. To come to a decision it is necessary to analyse her character as well as her actions. Since the whole story, as well as all the other protagonists, are set around her, the reader gets to know how Catherine feels, how she thinks, and especially learns a lot about her likes and dislikes. We do not get as much information about other characters as we get about Catherine. But if we look closer at the person of Catherine, it becomes questionable whether it is justified to award the title of an ideal heroine to her. The reader accompanies her through her whole stay in Bath and Northanger Abbey and has a chance to observe her behaviour in crucial situations. This observation is often bilateral, as on the one hand we can see the self-confident girl travelling on her own, and on the other hand her childish behaviour and her naivete point out that she is not yet a grown-up. This becomes notably evident when we compare her to the other characters in the novel. Nevertheless, this has to be analysed in detail in order to make a fair decision. In the following passages I would therefore firstly like to illustrate to what extend one can call Catherine an ideal heroine, what her strengths are and when she might be superior to other persons, and secondly, this should be contrasted to the attributes which disqualify her to be labelled such in regard to the weak points in her character and behaviour.

Why is Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey Often Referred to as a Parody of the Gothic Novel? by Melanie Strieder Summary

Essay from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Duisburg-Essen, 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Why is Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey often referred to as a parody of the Gothic novel?_ Jane Austen (1775-1817) is often regarded as the greatest English female novelist. Her novels are praised for their underlieing social comedy and thorough description of human relationships. She lived and worked during a time predominated by novels of sentiment, sensation and sensibility. However she stayed aloof from this literary style and especially her novel Northanger Abbey is often regarded to as a parody of the Gothic novel. Main authors of these so called 'Gothic' romances are for example Ann Radcliffe, Horace Walpole and M.G. Lewis. The Gothic novel has its origins in the Middle Ages and deals with mysterious, frightening, fantastic, supernatural, sexual and sublime things. The stories seem rather ridiculous to us today. The reader always finds similar characters and plots in those novels: "the tyrannical father, the importunate and unscrupulous suitor, the hero and heroine of sensibility and of mysterious but noble birth, the confidante[...], the chaperone."1 The heroine is always unbelievable beautiful but weak and virtuous. Then she is threatened by a veil man and saved by the hero in the end. In contrast to such a story Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey is often considered as a "amusing and bitingly satirical pastiche of the 'Gothic' romances popular in her day."2 [...] _____ 1 Mudrick, Marvin: Irony versus Gothicism.

Northanger Abbey by Tim Luscombe,Jane Austen Summary

A delightful stage version of Jane Austen's earliest novel, her mock-Gothic Romance. 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.

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... Tim Luscombe's adaptation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey was first performed at York Theatre Royal in 2004.
