"Me!" cried Fanny..."Indeed you must excuse me. I could not act any thing if you were to give me the world. No, indeed, I cannot act." At the age of ten, Fanny Price leaves the poverty of her Portsmouth home to be brought up among the family of her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, in the chilly grandeur of Mansfield Park. There she accepts her lowly status, and gradually falls in love with her cousin Edmund. When the dazzling and sophisticated Henry and Mary Crawford arrive, Fanny watches as her cousins become embroiled in rivalry and sexual jealousy. As the company starts to rehearse a play by way of entertainment, Fanny struggles to retain her independence in the face of the Crawfords' dangerous attractions; and when Henry turns his attentions to her, the drama really begins... This new edition does full justice to Austen's complex and subtle story, placing it in its Regency context and elucidating the theatrical background that pervades the novel.

“An Austen Fanatic”

At first I had very little that was good to say about Mansfield Park, but as soon as I truly committed myself to the moral, well mannered, but extremely shy character of Fanny Price I could hardly put it down. It is... More

“A Gentle story full of Interesting Observation”

If your experience of Jane Austen heroines is Elizabeth Bennett then you will find Fanny Price insipid but stick with her. This novel is the transition from Pride and Prejudice to Persuasion. Fanny is the quiet shy... More

“So compelling I fell asleep”

I really had to force myself to read this to the end, but it was an experience I wouldn't inflict on anyone. What I do remember of the book - which isn't very vivid, as I often fell asleep reading it - is... More
