'Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated' Martin Amis With its irrepressible heroine and playful literary games, Northanger Abbey is the most youthful and optimistic of Jane Austen's novels. It tells the story of young, impressionable Catherine Morland, whose first experience of fashionable society introduces her to the thrills of Gothic romances, and to the sophisticated Tilneys, who invite her to their family home, Northanger Abbey. But there, influenced by novels of horror and intrigue, Catherine begins to think that terrible crimes are being committed, and her imagination threatens to run away with her. Edited with an Introduction by MARILYN BUTLER

"Jane Austens spannender Roman neu übersetzt. Catherine Morland ist für Jane Austen eine ungewöhnliche Romanheldin: zwar ist sie jung und tugendhaft, aber weder ausnehmend schön noch besonders elegant, und als Tochter eines Geistlichen keine sonderlich gute Partie. Ihr Hauptinteresse gilt Büchern und deren Figuren und entsprechend naiv verhält sie sich im realen Leben. Bald aber lernt auch sie, auf ihre Gefühle zu hören und verwandelt sich in eine liebenswürdige junge Frau, die die Männerwelt verzaubert. Ihr Herz schlägt für den gebildeten, wohlerzogenen Henry Tilney, dessen Schwester sie auf den Landsitz der Familie einlädt. Doch die Aura des alten Anwesens Northanger Abbey beflügelt Catherines Phantasie: sie glaubt, einem düsteren Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur gekommen zu sein. Sabine Roth wurde 2009 für ihre Neuübersetzung von Anne Elliot mit dem ersten Übersetzerstipendium des Freistaates Bayern ausgezeichnet. Es sei ihr " "in beispielhafter Weise gelungen" ", so die Begründung der Jury, " "diffizile sprachliche Nuancen wiederzugeben und dabei die Eleganz und Lebendigkeit des Originals aus dem Jahr 1817 zu bewahren" "."

Jane Austen jugeait désuet l'engouement de son héroïne Catherine Morland pour les terrifiants châteaux moyenâgeux de Mrs Radcliff et les abbayes en ruine du préromantisme anglais. Parodie du roman gothique, satire pleine de saveur de la société anglaise qui prenait ses eaux à Bath, Northanger Abbey est aussi le roman très austénien du mariage et très moderne du "double jeu ".

Catherine Morland meets all the trappings of Gothic horror and imagines the worst. Disaster does eventually strike, as it does in the real world as distinct from the romantic one, but without spoiling the wonderful atmosphere of this story.
