About the eBook
Northanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, in 1803.
However, it was not published until after her death in 1817, along with another novel of hers, Persuasion.
Northanger Abbey is a satire of Gothic novels, which were quite popular at the time.
This coming-of-age story revolves around Catherine Morland, a young and naïve "heroine", who entertains the reader on her journey to a better understanding of the world and those around her.
About the Author
Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century.
Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.
Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism.
Her use of biting irony, along with her realism, humour, and social commentary, have long earned her acclaim among critics, scholars, and popular audiences alike.
