Discussion: Northanger Abby by Jane Austen
A satire on the popular Gothic mystery novels of her time, Northanger Abby portrays Catherine, an innocent, young seventeen year old from the country, who visits the rundown castle of her beloved. She finds herself immersed in imaginary intrigues fueled by the Gothic thrillers she reads: locked doors, mysterious chests, suspicious deaths. What is real? Who can she trust? This is one of Jane Austen’s lesser known works but has all the earmarks of her characteristic literary style.
The book is available from many different sources, some of them free online. It is not too long and should be an easy, enjoyable read, especially if you like her other books. Please join us.
