Waterstones Says

With typically piercing insight into social position and the confines of class, Mansfield Park moves beyond the comic irony and lighter themes of Austen’s early work to ask searching questions about a number of weightier issues. Fanny Price’s uncomfortable residence at the titular country house is handled with sensitivity and depth by an author ever more assured in her craft.

Taken from the poverty of her parents' home in Portsmouth, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with her cousin Edmund as her sole ally.

During her uncle's absence in Antigua, the Crawford's arrive in the neighbourhood bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation. Mansfield Park is considered Jane Austen's first mature work and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound.

“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
