Northanger Abbey: A Preview

Don't forget about Northanger Abbey tonight on PBS (check local listings). I'm looking forward to this one, since I found particular insight from a class on 18th Century Novels I took a few years back in graduate school. We read many of the novels that Austen mentions or alludes to in the book, including The Mysteries of Udolpho, Pamela, and Clarissa. (I just noticed that the professor's current project is a screen adaptation of Fanny Burney's Evelina. That could prove interesting!)

As for Northanger Abbey, I promise a review tomorrow. For now, you can read some others' reviews at the PBS blog. Be sure to check out last week's Persuasion reviews as well. Some are spot on!
