Descrizione
No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be an heroine. Her situation in life, the character of her father and mother, her own person and disposition, were all equally against her. Her father was a clergyman, without being neglected, or poor, and a very respectable man, though his name was Richard—and he had never been handsome. He had a considerable independence besides two good livings—and he was not in the least addicted to locking up his daughters. Her mother was a woman of useful plain sense, with a good temper, and, what is more remarkable, with a good constitution. She had three sons before Catherine was born; and instead of dying in bringing the latter into the world, as anybody might expect, she still lived on—lived to have six children more—to see them growing up around her, and to enjoy excellent health herself. A family of ten children will be always called a fine family, where there are heads and arms and legs enough for the number; but the Morlands had little other right to the word, for they were in general very plain, and Catherine, for many years of her life, as plain as any.

    Northanger Abbey” è uno dei miei romanzi preferiti scritti da Jane Austen. La storia racconta di Bath, cittadina di vacanza dove si riunisce la meglio società. E per quanto questo possa sorprendere il lettore, in realtà si rivela nella sua ripetitività e sostanziale noia. La Austen ha la capacità di descrivere senza mai annoiare, di sorprendere senza alienare. I suoi personaggi, per quanto talvolta possano apparire esagerati e marcati, sono un’ironicissima rappresentazione di tipi umani che possiamo ancora trovare nella nostra società. Northanger Abbey è spassosissimo dall’inizio alla fine.
