About Persuasion

  • The novel is one of the superb novels by Jane Austen.
  • This is primarily a coming of age story about one Catherine Morland.
  • She is a sweet, plain-spoken, naive 18-year-old young lady who goes to Bath with the Allens, a respectable older couple.
  • She doesn’t recognize hyperbole and is extremely gullible.
  • At the Pump Room, she makes the acquaintance of the aforementioned Isabella whose brother John, as it happens, is good friends with James, Catherine’s brother.
  • Catherine also makes the acquaintance of Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor, who are much pleasanter company than the Thorpe siblings.
  • As the story goes on, she also meets Captain Tilney, Henry and Eleanor’s older brother, and General Tilney, their father.
  • The book title is taken from the name of General Tilney’s residence in Gloucestershire, where Catherine has a very confusing and eventful visit.
  • By the book’s end, she is older and wiser when it comes to recognizing duplicitous people.
