Northanger Abbey vlog speculation
aeternamente: I’ve put my previous posts about a possible Northanger Abbey vlog adaptation on the LBD tag because it was tangentially related, but now, I’ve been fleshing out what I think the story would look like if adapted, and I really think it’s gotten to the point in my head where it’s its own thing. So I’ll just tag it for Northanger Abbey and I suppose those who like NA as well as those...

slattern: delladilly: slattern: actually, moresleighbells’ post about further modern austen adaptations a la the LBD makes me want a northanger abbey adaptation! catherine would so be in to a vlog. and a tumblr. and a goodreads account (she’s totally devoured the twilight books) it could be so charming and cute! OH MY GOD her midnight vlog posts from under the covers like in cahoots...

countessmary: Re the screen cap I just reblogged: No, it’s not [possible to read too many novels]! And much as I adore this adaptation, I wish it hadn’t gone down the tempting interpretation of swinging from one extreme to another in regards to novel reading. Catherine in the novel never burns Udolpho and there’s no sign that she’s going to stop reading after she marries Henry. (Can you...

Northanger Abbey and Form →
But within Austen’s works, even those who approve of novels are capable of describing them in terms of their packaging. In Northanger Abbey, Henry Tilney describes the typical gothic novel as “‘a new publication which is shortly to come out, in three duodecimo volumes, two hundred and seventy-six pages in each, with a frontispiece to the first, of two tombstones and a lantern’” (NA Vol. I Ch....
A Critical Look at Henry Tilney →
I read Northanger Abbey for the first time slightly over a month ago in preparation for my senior thesis on Jane Austen and the form of the novel, and ever since then I’ve been going back and forth about what I think of the novel’s purported “hero” Henry Tilney. I find the protagonist Catherine to be simple in a cute sort of way—strong-minded and genuine in her opinions even when she’s not...
Go Gothic with Northanger Abbey →
these mortals be: why I love Northanger Abbey: →
ohwhatfools: In portraying manners as the means through which gothic horrors are inflicted on women in reality, Northanger Abbey illustrates the thinness of the boundary separating the real from the unreal, and suggests that fiction holds an important role in reflecting reality. Gothic literary conventions become a vehicle through which Northanger Abbey highlights the vulnerability of young...
i absolutely adore catherine moreland just because she exists, but i’d be lying if i didn’t say that i get an extra surge of love for her out of pure spite when people write about how they don’t like her because she’s ~whiny~ and ~stupid~. i mean, yeah she’s naive, but she also doesn’t need to be told how she feels (she knows she likes tilney; for a character...

ididstartthefire: The thing about women hating women is something that society itselfs encourages and it’s also very tied with the idea of the ‘one special snowflake’ who’s different and ‘not like the other girls’ - the ‘cool girl tm’. People bash YA lit because it focuses on girls and even the protagonists of YA lit try to set themselves apart from other YA lit. It all reminds me of...
