Northanger Abbey, Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon

New Edition

Jane Austen
Claudia L. Johnson, Edited by John Davie, and James Kinsley

Oxford World's Classics

  • The best-value edition, combining Northanger Abbey with three minor works--two early, one late--highlighting Austen's originality across the full range of her career.
  • New introduction by Claudia L. Johnson reassesses received opinion about Northanger Abbey at the level of style as well as theme, and addresses recent critics as well as long established ones.
  • Reset text has crisper appearance.
  • New, up-to-date bibliography, and new chronology by General Editor Vivien Jones (University of Leeds).
  • New and extensive notes in particular draw attention to the many subtle parodies of the Gothic genre.
  • Appendices on social rank and dancing further contextualize the works.
