First accepted by a publisher in 1803, Northanger Abbey was eventually published posthumously in 1818. In it Austen weaves a romance full of suspense and comedy around the heroine Catherine Morland''s first foray into society. The style of the novel is a unique hybrid; along the way Austen parodies the eighteenth-century novel of manners, the Gothic novel, and even the educational treatises of the time.

Editorial Reviews

"Claire Grogan''s full and innovative new edition of Northanger Abbey provides background material that invites readers to think about this ambitious and exhilarating novel in fresh and suggestive ways. Grogan rightly calls Northanger Abbey Austen''s most literary novel, and the edition she has prepared makes it possible to see how closely it is involved in the literary and political backgrounds of its time. An exemplary edition!"
