Read & Download Northanger Abbey ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free To the joys of Gothic romances and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney who invite her to their father's house Northanger Abbey There influenced by novels of horror and intrigue Catherine comes to imagine terrible crimes committed by General Ti. The uarrels of popes and kings with wars and pestilences in every page the men all so good for nothing and hardly any women at all it is very tiresome and yet I often think it odd that it should be so dull for a great deal of it must be invention This rather crusty comment on venerable historiography is one of the few passages I marked as noteworthy when I started reading and later rather forced my way through Jane Austen s novel Northanger Abbey and even though I deem this remark on historians honourable labours really witty I can t help thinking that the last sentence could also be applied to the novel itself which not only came over as dull to me but also as ill written and annoying on the wholeThe novel starts appealingly enough when the narrator introduces the protagonist Catherine Morland by saying that she has hardly any attributes of a heroine and by then starting on a parody of literary stereotypes any decent hero or heroine can usually not do without This is going to be fun I said to myself there being no one else around this is probably going to be a gleeful send up of Gothic literature uite in the vein that Don uixote was an ingenious and rambunctious satire of books on knight errantry Okay knowing what I do about Jane Austen I probably did not exactly expect the book to be rambunctious but was looking forward to a finer subtler form of humourUnfortunately my expectations were mostly disappointed because Austen was interested in telling us yet another story of how a young woman discards her childish and romantic notions and finds true self fulfilment by submitting herself to the better judgment and world wise ways of a young man who nevertheless is some years her senior More than half of the novel plays in Bath in Pickwick Papers Charles Dickens proved that this need not necessarily make for boring writing where the members of high society paraded up and down for an hour in the pump room looking at everybody and speaking to no one Now the people in Northanger Abbey do talk a lot to each other and themselves but strangely this does not make them come to life in any way because they are mostly even talked about than talking and acting by a sharp tongued narrator who preens herself on her wit but who apparently fails to see that she exercises this wit on an incredibly narrow range of observation of human life It is obvious that Jane Austen s view of the world was starkly limited by the proprieties of gentry life which one cannot reproach her with but which ironically places her in a similar position to her protagonist Catherine Morland so that like her she may poke fun at feel bored by and reject the parade of boorish Thorpes seemingly empty headed Mrs Allens or scheming Isabellas in the Bath pump room but she is unable to surpass it and confined to either watching or joining itThis becomes obvious when we consider Catherine s development The heroine s dark suspicions about General Tilney and her amusing Udolphoiade in Northanger Abbey are endearing in their own way but they will simply not do and therefore our narrator makes her protagonist undergo a short period of contrition and shame in which she realizes that she had been entertaining utterly childish notions Of course she is aided in her feat of self perception by Henry Tilney her future husband a man who continually talks down to her and who even seems to like it as much as she doesAusten archly remarks Where people wish to attach they should always be ignorant To come with a well informed mind is to come with an inability of administering to the vanity of others which a sensible person would always wish to avoid A woman especially if she have the misfortune of knowing anything should conceal it as well as she can In other words she recommends to her female readers to allow men to enjoy their notion of being cleverer and better versed in the ways of the world than women and as a wise woman to encourage men in this belief in order to seem attractive to them but this advice is poisonous on two heads Firstly it confirms the idea according to which a woman s fulfilment lies in pleasing and attracting a man an idea that is doubtless part and parcel of Austen s education and that she might silently despise yet never openly rebel against And secondly because with Catherine Morland Austen does not create a woman that is actually clever but decides to hide her light under a bushel but actually a young girl who is hopelessly na ve and who actually confirms any prejudice her readers might entertain with regard to women s judgmentIn short Austen not only fails to redeem her promise of accomplishing an entertaining satire of Gothic literature but she also corroborates the prejudices of her readership Add to this that the plot of the novel is ill balanced and all in all a poor excuse for having a couple of stock characters parade the pump room and you will probably understand my harsh judgment on this novel One should however not forget that this is a very early work of Jane Austen s and that it underwent a number of revisions later on which may account for the lack of balance in the novel plot It certainly does not account for Austen s popularity

This is my second Austen book and I really enjoyed it Yes I enjoyed it but there are parts that bore me to death like trying to force me down to bed I enjoyed how Austen wrote every conversation the characters trying to deliver they are graceful with intent and very uniue I m not used the way they speak and maybe if somebody heard me talking like Catherine maybe people will laugh at me or get annoyed easily But one thing that really attract me most was Austen s Catherine she s not girly like the other girls and by reading her text you can usually identify her from the other main characters she s not flirtatious she likes gothic books and a funny little girl For short she s just an ordinary girl in our generation Northanger Abbey delights me most but not as best as Emma both books were written beautifully by a lady through her experiences although from her writings she also included a true manner of a true woman in their time I don t know if those manners were still applicable in the present I know some guys don t like Austen but I think most of them liked it because of the protagonists that ideally loved by man in my own opinionAs I said before sometimes I get bore reading this book Not intentionally but there are parts that I m not particular with especially when you are reading books that composed of almost conversation of the characters in the story But over all it was an awesome book Austen will tour you to the dark world and her short fancy imagination through Northanger AbbeyCatherine a 17 year old girl who lives with her father a clergyman and a mother who taught her everything she needed to be a loyal sister to her brother a tomboy a normal pretty girl and very vulgar lady of her age She was invited by her neighbor to come to Bath to have a short vacation with them while having fun partying with the other socialites or maybe some people who only wanted her own material belongings She met a sarcastic but clever man named Henry Tilney she fall in love easily She also met a very fine lady Isabella Thorpe and soon she develop a very tight friendship with her In the story both character develop a special relationship sharing their desires and their fond of gothic storiesWhen Catherine discovered the feelings of Isabella to her brother James She was in a great joy to accept such delightful engagement Unfortunately all secrets revealed when her brother told her that Isabella only wanted to marry her because of their wealth Such distasteful attitude of her put Catherine to realization to grow and to become a fine ladyShe was invited to stay to Tilney s place and met several characters that scares her touches her and suddenly change her feelings to gothic novel Such funny verdict and being childish made her world go round like somebody is trying to pull her spirit down What s next well is it you readers that will discover everything before I spoil the treasure and the dark secret of the Northanger Abbey What really happened to Catherine well that s made her happy in the endAusten wrote the ending in a hurry I don t have any idea why but the narrator already explained everything what happened to Catherine after her visit It was like reading a summary of the ending and that disappoints me a lot but never fails the readers to enjoy it If we consider the main characters age and the conclusion of the story this book can be categorize as YA Its publication date might be too old but the story always glow inside out image error

Northanger Abbey is a charming story that revolves around a young innocent and naive heroine to use Austen s word Catherine Morland True to Austen s famous uotation that If adventures will not befall a young Lady in her own village she must seek them abroad The story progresses with Catherine taking an adventurous journey from her home in Fullerton to Bath and then to a Gothic Abbey in Gloucestershire In her journey she comes to understand the people and world around her of what is important in life and finally find true love and happinessMore than Austen s other books Northanger Abbey can be treated as Romance The lightness the vibrancy the youthful exuberance and elegance of the setting of Bath in the Regency period I believe brought foremost the romantic element in the story And the prominence that is given to the sweet love story of Catherine and Henry Tilney is most charming Marriage and money are always a key theme in Jane Austen s books And it is here so too The eagerness to make monetarily advantageous matches by the young men and women for themselves as well as by parents for their children is cleverly and satirically portrayed The Regency society s consideration of money as the necessity for true happiness in marriage always met with the critical hand of Austen And her critical social commentary on the matter is always fascinating to read Apart from the popular key theme there is also a Gothic element that touches the storyline in bringing up the Gothic Northanger Abbey the residence of the Tilneys The Gothic mysteries that were popular at the time especially those written by Ann Radcliffe creates in the mind of our young heroine wild imaginations which lead to an uncomfortable confrontation with Henry Tilney This episode made me reflect on whether Jane Austen was being satirical of the popular Gothic horror mysteries or being appreciative of them In the manner the conseuences of Catherine s imagination were portrayed I was inclined to believe in the formerAusten s heroine Catherine and hero Henry are yet another two unforgettable characters With each Jane Austen book I m adding loving characters to the list of my fictitious friends I loved Catherine Her innocent naivety combined with the steady righteous mind made her so adorable Although I don t care about her Gothic horror fancies I share a love for old castles and abbeys with her Henry The witty sarcastic yet strong steady and affectionate Henry too is loveable I enjoyed their story very much especially the chapters of Catherine s pining after Henry which is so well written by Austen However their romance was initiated by the heroine Catherine and this is a novel case In Austen s words his Henry s affection originated in nothing better than gratitude or in other words that a persuasion of her partiality for him had been the only cause of giving her a serious thought is what makes Henry attach himself to Catherine InterestingThe rest of the characters were interesting too They are a selection of the friendly the kind the vain and villainous Here however than the good characters my attention was grabbed by a couple of vain and villainous characters introduced by Austen General Tilney heads the way with his pride and cruelty followed closely by the Thorpe sister and brother with their greed And captain Tilney closes the end with his vain importance The writing is light spirited and graceful Being the first written work by Jane Austen one can detect an amateurish touch here and there There is also a different touch to this story in comparison with her succeeding works but what exactly was the difference was something I still cannot fathom Perhaps it is the Gothic element perhaps her inclination towards romance But no matter there was absolutely nothing there to impede my enjoyment of this beautiful story
