Jane Austen

Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey was Jane Austen's first novel and was written between 1798 and 1803. The novel is a coming of age tale, focusing on the comedic adventures of a sheltered seventeen-year-old girl who learns to navigate the polite society of Bath (a popular English resort town) and Northanger Abbey (the fancy home of one of the book's wealthiest families). Her travels are full of mishaps with new friends and love interests.

    "It is so odd to me, that you should never have read Udolpho before; but I suppose Mrs. Morland objects to novels."

    "No, she does not. She very often reads Sir Charles Grandison herself; but new books do not fall in our way."

    "Sir Charles Grandison! That is an amazing horrid book, is it not? I remember Miss Andrews could not get through the first volume."

    "It is not like Udolpho at all; but yet I think it is very entertaining."
