Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey

It can be difficult for a reader to imagine the setting and fully understand the history of the locations in a novel when it is not presented in a visual method. When a novel takes place in a real-life setting, it can be mapped and better understood using Google Maps. Using Google Maps as a tool, Catherine Morland’s journey through Bath to Northanger Abbey can be more easily followed, and the relationships between locations and landmarks can be better understood. I would argue that Google Maps can make an otherwise complicated, confusing novel much more engaging and accessible.
