Northanger Abbey

by Jane Austen

During an eventful season at Bath, young, naive 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 optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

Northanger Abbey

by Jane Austen

Although Northanger Abbey was not published until after Jane Austen's death in 1817, it was one of her first novels. Northanger Abbey is, in part, Austen's response to Gothic novels, like Ann Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho, which were enjoying tremendous popularity in the late seventeeth and early eighteenth centuries, and to their devoted readers. It is a fine demonstration of the young novelist's powers of social observation and pristine style, which are the hallmarks of her work. In opposition to the Gothic novelists' portentous prose and unlikely heroines, she presents a charmingly believable Catherine Morland. In one of Austen's delightful satirical twists, Catherine, recently introduced into society, is a voracious reader of Gothic stories. When she is invited to stay with the Tilneys in their seemingly foreboding abbey, she fears that it is the kind of terrible place described in the novels she devours.

Northanger Abbey: The Illustrated Edition

by Jane Austen

This special edition of Northanger Abbey includes the famous illustrations by Henry Matthew Brock, originally created in 1898. Brock and his brothers were all successful illustrators of the day and often posed for each other using costumes, props and furniture in their Cambridge studio. Brock's older brother Charles joined him in illustrating other Jane Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions. Northanger Abbey was Austen's first completed novel but was published posthumously in 1817. Austen sold the novel to a bookseller in 1803 - for £10 - who decided not to publish it. Her brother bought it back for the same amount after her death. Catherine Morland is the daughter of a country clergyman, one of ten children. She devours Gothic novels and has an active imagination. After a lively season in Bath, she is invited to Northanger Abbey, where she finds the house is not the dark, moody Gothic mansion of her imaginings. Catherine's exciting season in Bath leads her to become acquainted with the dashing John Thorpe, who encourages her flights of fancy and attempts to divert her from his rival Henry Tilney. But Henry extends an invitation she can't resist and she finds herself visiting Northanger Abbey. There, as a "heroine in training," she is determined to bring one of her favorite Gothic novels to life, but the charming and very down to earth Mr. Tilney eventually brings her to see that real life can be even more interesting than the most spine-chilling Gothic fantasy.

Orgullo y prejuicio

by Jane Austen

Es ésta la novela más popular de Jane Austen (1775-1817), considerada por la mayor parte de los críticos como una obra maestra. En ella, todos los elementos del equilibrado y sobrio arte de la escritora alcanzan su mejor expresión. La obra debe gran parte de su popularidad al brío y a la agudeza con que son creados algunos personajes cómicos, como el amenísimo pastor Collins, uno de los figurones más célebres de la literatura inglesa. Con unos pocos y sencillos rasgos, Jane Austen traza unas figuras tan eficaces, que alcanzan un relieve que las hace inolvidables. ¿Por qué Jane Austen vuelve una y otra vez a través del tiempo, como si nunca hubiera dejado de escribir? Quienes han estudiado su obra aseguran que sus novelas están repletas de observaciones incisivas y detalles meticulosos, y que en todas está presente un tema característico: el alcance de la madurez a través de la pérdida de ilusiones. Sus personajes son provincianos de clase media, cuya máxima preocupación es conseguir un buen pasar económico y, su mayor ambición, el matrimonio. Y la perennidad de Austen quizá sugiera la confirmación de que las cosas no han cambiado tanto como parece desde el siglo XVIII. La presión de las convenciones, el rígido sistema de castas, el protagonismo del dinero como motor social no harán sino alimentar dramáticamente un romance conflictivo, que está destinado a consumarse, pero no sin antes haber atravesado esa ajustada red de tabúes culturales que rodean a la pareja cenral.

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen called this brilliant work "her own darling child" and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, "as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print." The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austen's radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

Brock's older brother Charles also illustrated other editions of Pride and Prejudice, and joined him in illustrating other Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions. Pride and Prejudice was published anonymously in 1813. It was Jane Austen's second novel and became her most popular. Considered by many to be the very first romance novel, the book features Elizabeth, an independent-minded heroine, and Darcy, a dark, brooding, rich, handsome hero. Jane Austen's wit and insight into human nature are legendary and make Pride and Prejudice a book to be savored over and over again. Pride and Prejudice is the deceptively simple story of Elizabeth Bennet, second eldest of five unmarried daughters of an affable country gentleman and a very silly lady whose mission in life is to marry them off. When a wealthy young man moves into the neighborhood, he brings with him his friend Mr. Darcy, who falls in love with Elizabeth - much to his own chagrin - after insulting her and earning the derision of the entire neighborhood. The necessity for both of them to overcome their pride and see each other for the people they really are is the backbone of an enduring comedy of manners and love story.
