From the editor of the popular Annotated Pride and Prejudice comes an annotated edition of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey that makes her lighthearted satire of the gothic novel an even more satisfying read. Here is the complete text of the novel with more than 1,200 annotations on facing pages, including:

—Explanations of historical context
—Citations from Austen’s life, letters, and other writings
—Definitions and clarifications
—Literary comments and analysis
—Maps of places in the novel
—An introduction, bibliography, and detailed chronology of events
—225 informative illustrations

Filled with fascinating details about the characters’ clothing, furniture, and carriages, and illuminating background information on everything from the vogue for all things medieval to the opportunities for socializing in the popular resort town of Bath, David M. Shapard’s Annotated Northanger Abbey brings Austen’s world into richer focus.
