Mansfield Park

by Random House Value

October 1, 2006 | Trade Paperback

Mansfield Park is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
The longest and most measured of Jane Austen's novels, Mansfield Park gives readers Austen's largest cast of characters and her most dramatic narrative. At its center is Fanny Price-the classic "poor cousin," brought as a child to Mansfield Park by the rich Sir Thomas Bertram and his wife as an act of charity-who, as she matures, comes to forcibly demonstrate those virtues the author most admired: modesty, firm principles, and a loving heart. As Fanny observes her cousins cast aside their scruples in dangerous flirtations (and worse) and as she herself resolutely resists the advantages of marriage to the fascinating but morally unsteady Henry Crawford, her seeming austerity grows in appeal. Mansfield Park encompasses not only Austen's great comedic gifts and her genius as a historian of the human animal, but her personal credo as well: faith in a social order that combats chaos through civil grace, decency, and wit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I am a big fan of Jane Austen. I really like this book. Although it sometimes makes me feel like Fannie is a second choice i still love it.
