'Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated' Martin Amis With its irrepressible heroine and playful literary games, Northanger Abbey is the most youthful and optimistic of Jane Austen's novels. It tells the story of young, impressionable Catherine Morland, whose first experience of fashionable society introduces her to the thrills of Gothic romances, and to the sophisticated Tilneys, who invite her to their family home, Northanger Abbey. But there, influenced by novels of horror and intrigue, Catherine begins to think that terrible crimes are being committed, and her imagination threatens to run away with her. Edited with an Introduction by MARILYN BUTLER

"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" "."

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.

The original and unabridged text of this Jane Austen classic. Ideal for students, Janeites and new readers alike. Northanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, though she had previously made a start on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen are visiting Bath. It is Catherine's first visit and she makes new friends, such as Isabella Thorpe. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother, the rough-mannered, slovenly John Thorpe, and by her real love interest, Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, from her reading of Ann Radcliffe's Gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, she expects to be dark, ancient and full of Gothic horrors and fantastical mystery.
