Emily in 'Udolpho' is informed about this ruined haunted chapel on arriving;
Northanger Abbey has a part that is decayed. How thrilling for Catherine. If she's lucky this might be haunted too.
This ill fated nun in 'Udolpho' holds the key to many mysteries and secrets.
An abbey like Northanger 'must' have had nuns, and there has to be some legend regarding one such nun - don't they all?
Catherine can't wait to discover such delicious things that are connected with old buildings.
Here, I am quite sure, that the reader is also being parodied along with the 'gothic' novel.
Does anyone think the same or otherwise? Love to read some comments.
