Self spent late last night combing the web for views (hopefully, conflicting) on the dramatis personae of Northanger Abbey. Principally, for those of the characters she is most interested in:
- Catherine Morland
- Mr. Tilney
- John Thorpe
- Isabella Thorpe
Her favorite (thus far) is this one, on Tor.com:
Not Born To Be a Heroine
- Northanger Abbey is hilarious. It’s the story of a girl who wants to be the heroine of a Gothic novel, but who finds herself instead in a peaceful domestic novel.
It’s good to be reminded that the heroine of this book is 17. The same age as the characters in The Hunger Games.
Self just wanted to throw that in there.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
