Ein Meisterwerk der geistreichen Unterhaltung – ironisch, spritzig, klug



«Northanger Abbey» ist ein Glanzstück der geistreichen Unterhaltung. Vorrangig als Satire auf den Schauerroman gedacht, zeigt der Roman die Meisterin der leben digen Dialoge und der ironischen Figuren zeichnung auf der Höhe ihrer Kunst. «Von scharfer Zunge, aber zärt lichem Herzen» (Virginia Woolf), zündet Jane Austen hier einmal mehr ein Feuer werk an Pointen.



Catherine Morland ist zwar jung, doch weder auffallend hübsch noch besonders elegant oder wenigstens vermögend, und obendrein ein wahrer Ausbund an Naivität. Roman heldinnen sehen gemeinhin anders aus. Die Schöntuereien koketter Freun dinnen verwechselt sie mit Zuneigung, die Gefallsucht eitler Gecken mit standesgemäßer Noblesse. Doch die Erfahrung lehrt sie alsbald, daß nicht alles edel ist, was glänzt. Indem sie sich auf ihr Gefühl und ihre intuitive Menschenkenntnis verläßt, gelangt sie schließlich zu jenem fröhlichen Eigensinn, der das andere Geschlecht im Nu zu bezaubern vermag.

Jane Austen (1775-1817) ist eine Klassikerin eigenen Ranges. Niemand stiftet auf amüsantere Weise unter Liebenden zuerst Verwirrung und zuletzt Ehen. Auch in «Northanger Abbey» geht es um das, was Männer und Frauen aneinander zweifeln läßt und sie nach vielen Bewährungs proben in beidseits gereiftem Verständnis zusammenführt. «Bleibend frisch, aufmüpfig bissig, klar komponiert sind die Gesellschaftsbilder Jane Austens», schreibt Hans Pleschinski im Nachwort: «nie zähflüs sig sentimental, sondern stets mit der ironischen Brechung, daß das Leben auch als aufwendige Komödie gesehen werden kann.»

Northanger Abbey was one of three novels adapted for ITV’s Jane Austen season. Catherine is pressured by Isabella and John into riding to Blaise Castle, despite her having made plans for a walk with Henry and Eleanor. On her return home, Isabella tells Catherine that she and James are engaged. James and John announce that they are to leave Bath for a few weeks and after talking about marriage with Catherine, John leaves believing she is in love with him.

Catherine states that Northanger Abbey looks exactly as she imagined it and she becomes intrigued by Mrs. Due to her overactive imagination, Catherine starts to believe that General Tilney murdered his wife. Henry catches her in his mother’s chamber and becomes offended when he realises what she has been thinking. Catherine apologises and Henry tells her that perhaps it is possible to read too many novels. General Tilney returns home from a trip away and orders Eleanor to send Catherine home to Fullerton that night.

Catherine endures the trip alone and believes that Henry told the General about her suspicions. A few days later, Henry comes to Fullerton and explains that the General discovered that Catherine’s family were not as rich as John led him to believe. He apologises for his father’s actions and explains that even though he will probably be disinherited, he loves Catherine and proposes. People think Austen is a lot more romantic and straightforward than she actually is. What’s quite interesting with Henry Tilney is that he doesn’t necessarily fall madly in love with Catherine straight away. Felicity Jones commenting on Austen’s writing.

On 10 November 2005, Julia Day from The Guardian reported ITV controller of drama, Nick Elliott, had ordered three new adaptations of Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Andrew Davies, the screenwriter who adapted Pride and Prejudice for the BBC, was commissioned to write the script for Northanger Abbey. Felicity Jones portrayed Northanger Abbey’s heroine, Catherine Morland. Karen Price from the Western Mail reported ITV were looking for „big names“ and promised the best British acting talent, while they were casting the three adaptations. Actress Carey Mulligan was given the role of Catherine’s shallow and selfish friend Isabella Thorpe. The actress had previously worked with Davies on an adaptation of Bleak House.
