With psychological insight and sparkling wit, Jane Austen paints an irresistibly lifelike portrait of shifting values and split loyalties in Mansfield Park.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics bound in real cloth with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Gorgeously illustrated by the celebrated Hugh Thomson, this edition also includes an afterword by historian and author Nigel Cliff.

Aged ten, Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthier relations, the Bertrams, at Mansfield Park. However, life there is not as she imagined. Treated with disdain by three of her cousins, she finds her only comfort in the kindness of the fourth, Edmund. As they grow, their friendship develops into romantic love - until the arrival of Henry Crawford and his charming sister Mary causes an emotional upheaval that no one in the family expects.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I can’t leave Mansfield Park alone. When driving or washing dishes or folding laundry, I turn on an audio version and listen, and I keep the little speckled copy of the text near me at all times. - Anna Keesey, LA Review of Books

Mansfield Park highlights, as no other Austen novel does, the role that class and class privilege play in determining the popular qualities for a heroine’s charm and wit. - Tara Isabella Burton, The Paris Review

“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
