Massachusetts Region: The Implicit Dramas of Northanger Abbey
Marcia Folsom will trace two hidden threads of meaning in the novel: the implicit effects of the conversations between Catherine Morland and Henry Tilney and the implicit mercenary motives of characters who seem to Catherine—initially—to be benign.
Folsom is a retired Professor of Literature at Wheelock College. She has edited several works on teaching Austen's novels, and her writing on Austen has been published in Persuasions and Persuasions On-Line.
