A delight for Jane Austen fans: the complete text of her most light-hearted novel with hundreds of annotations and illustrations on facing pages, along with a chronology, maps, and an introduction. From the editor of the popular Annotated Pride and Prejudice an edition of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey that makes her charming satire of the gothic novel an even more satisfying and fulfilling read. Juxtaposing the complete text of the novel with annotations on facing pages, along with maps, illustrations, a chronology, and an introduction, David M. Shapard's delightfully entertaining edition brings Austen's world to life. Here you will find historical and social context; definitions of archaic words; citations from Austen's life and letters; and all kinds of details that illuminate the plot. Reading The Annotated Northanger Abbey is like having an incredibly knowledgeable person reading over your shoulder and discussing the book with you - it's perfect for students, for reading groups, and, of course, for Janeites everywhere.
