The Young Jane Austen: Northanger Abbey

Hillsdale College via Independent


Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the greatest English novelists. Her first novel—published shortly after her death—was Northanger Abbey, which parodies the romanticized fiction popular in Austen’s day. A close study of Jane Austen’s ebullient writings reveals timeless truths about human nature and illuminates the beauty of everyday life.
