Mansfield Park

Author Jane Austen

£5.99

This title is not yet published, but can be pre-ordered

Description

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 (which, I think, means it is not as amusing as ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and that is entirely true; it is not) and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound.
