Title:      Northanger Abbey
Austen's witty exploration of the perils of mistaking fiction for reality During an eventful season at Bath, young, naïve Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: flirtatious Isabella, who shares Catherine's love of Gothic romance and horror, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father's mysterious house, Northanger Abbey. There, her imagination influenced by novels of sensation and intrigue, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney. With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, this is the most youthful and and optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

Title:      Northanger Abbey, Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon
Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of the ingenuous Catherine Morland, whose indefatigable reading of gothic novels sends her imagination into hilarious overdrive. Austen's literary burlesque is tempered with edginess and cirumspection, however, as ordinary life takes a more sinister turn. This edition also includes Austen's other short works and shows her to be as innovative at the start of her career as at its close.

Title:      Northanger Abbey
In her introduction to Northanger Abbey--part of Harvard's celebrated annotated Austen series--Susan Wolfson proposes that Austen's most underappreciated, most playful novel is about fiction itself and how it can take possession of everyday understandings. Wolfson's running commentary will engage new readers and delight scholars.

Title:      Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen
Jane Austen's first novelpublished posthumously in 1818tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion. Though Austen's fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical novel pokes fun at the gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.Northanger Abbey is a coming-of-age novel and a satire of Gothic novels written by Jane Austen. Northanger Abbey was actually the first finished novel that Jane Austen wrote.The story revolves around Catherine Morland, the young and naïve "heroine", and her journey to a better understanding of herself and the world around her.When she is invited by her wealthy neighbors, the Fullertons, to accompany them to the spa town of Bath she experiences her first taste of the fashionable upper class society of England. While there she meets the clever young gentleman, Henry Tilney, his sister Eleanor, and their father, the imposing General Tilney. The Tilneys invite Catherine to come stay with them at their estate, the titular Northanger Abbey.

Eventually she realizes that real life is not at all like that of a Gothic novel. Noted for the insight it gives to Austens one opinions of the literature of her day.Northanger Abbey is both a satirical parody of the gothic romance novel and the story of a young girls maturation into womanhood.

Title:      Northanger Abbey
"Jane Austens spannender Roman neu übersetzt. Catherine Morland ist für Jane Austen eine ungewöhnliche Romanheldin: zwar ist sie jung und tugendhaft, aber weder ausnehmend schön noch besonders elegant, und als Tochter eines Geistlichen keine sonderlich gute Partie. Ihr Hauptinteresse gilt Büchern und deren Figuren und entsprechend naiv verhält sie sich im realen Leben. Bald aber lernt auch sie, auf ihre Gefühle zu hören und verwandelt sich in eine liebenswürdige junge Frau, die die Männerwelt verzaubert. Ihr Herz schlägt für den gebildeten, wohlerzogenen Henry Tilney, dessen Schwester sie auf den Landsitz der Familie einlädt. Doch die Aura des alten Anwesens Northanger Abbey beflügelt Catherines Phantasie: sie glaubt, einem düsteren Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur gekommen zu sein. Sabine Roth wurde 2009 für ihre Neuübersetzung von Anne Elliot mit dem ersten Übersetzerstipendium des Freistaates Bayern ausgezeichnet. Es sei ihr " "in beispielhafter Weise gelungen" ", so die Begründung der Jury, " "diffizile sprachliche Nuancen wiederzugeben und dabei die Eleganz und Lebendigkeit des Originals aus dem Jahr 1817 zu bewahren" "."
