  • Like many novels in the nineteenth century Northanger Abbey dealt with frivolous matters such as social etiquette and manners.
  • These things were very important in victorian England particularly Bath where the novel is predominantly set and were Austen lived for sometime thus influencing her writing.
  • Maybe…




I have to point out that Jane Austen lived in Georgian Britain 1775-1817 not Victorian Britain which was much later, it is a common misconception but socially and in literature it is quite different. Sorry to nitpick.
