"There is much of the Gothic Romance in Northanger Abbey including the main characters, setting and plot"
" Jane Austen's heroine, Catherine Morland, is made extraordinary by her ordinariness"
In light of these comments, to what extent is Catherine Morland a Gothic heroine?
Can you suggest a good opening for my coursework?? I'm rather stuck at the moment. Also any further links to help with my review of gothic romance/northanger abbey would be great
You should start by setting out what you're going to explore:
a. Gothic and Gothic Romance
b. characters, setting and plot
c. focusing on Catheine Morland
d focus on 'extraordinary by her ordinariness'
