  • "Sensible, wise, but impovershed Fanny Price goes to live with her wealthy cousins, and throughout many trials of their upper-middle-class life, she remains true to her beliefs."@en
  • "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. She gradually falls in love with her cousin Edmund, but when the dazzling and sophisticated Crawfords arrive, and amateur theatricals unleash rivalry and sexual jealousy, Fanny has to fight to retain her independence."
  • "Fanny Price is 'adopted' by her rich relations and given a home in the opulence of Mansfield Park. But the transplantation is not a happy one."
  • "Fanny Price is a young girl from a relatively poor family, raised by her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at Mansfield Park. She grows up with her four cousins, Tom, Edmund, Maria, and Julia, but is always treated as inferior to them; only Edmund shows her real kindness. He is also the most virtuous of the siblings: Maria and Julia are vain and spoiled, while Tom is an irresponsible gambler. Over time, Fanny's gratitude for Edmund's kindness secretly grows into romantic love."@en
  • "Fanny Price comes from very humble surroundings to be placed among her wealthy cousins, the Bertrams. Here she is faced with moral dilemmas by which she stands to lose their friendship. Only Sir Thomas Bertram and his younger son Edmund value her, but her situation becomes unbearable when she refuses what Sir Thomas considers a good match: Henry Crawford, unprincipled brother of the worldly Mary, who fascinates Edmund. Fanny returns home, to be recalled when the female cousins commit indiscretions and Edmund turns to Fanny for moral support and love."
  • "To relieve the pressure on her impoverished, overburdened family, shy young Fanny Price is sent to live with Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, wealthy relatives who reside at Mansfield Park. Of the Bertrams' own four children, only the younger son, Edmund, shows her any real kindness, and over time Fanny falls in love with her cousin. With Sir Thomas away on overseas business, Mansfield's social circle gains two superficially attractive new members: handsome, worldly Henry Crawford and his witty, vivacious sister Mary. Flirtations abound as Henry cavorts with the two Bertram daughters, one of whom is already engaged. Even more galling to Fanny, who stands aloof from all the shenanigans, is the fact that Edmund falls for Mary's dazzling charms. The waters are further muddied when Henry trains his roving eye on Fanny herself, and becomes a very earnest suitor...Austen's recurring themes of manners and morality, rank and responsibility, vice and virtue, lie at the heart of Mansfield Park, widely regarded as one of her mature masterpieces. -- from publisher."

Growing up with her privileged and spoilt cousins, the Bertrams, she lives in the shadows of their glamorous lives, but manages to find an ally in her cousin, Edmund.

  • "In "Mansfield Park", dem Herrenhaus des reichen Sir Thomas Bertram, leben nicht weniger als drei junge Ehekandidatinnen. Maria und Julia, die beiden Töchter des Hauses, gefährden durch Arroganz und Eitelkeit ihr zukünftiges Glück. Zugleich machen sie ihrer Cousine Fanny, Tochter verarmter Eltern, die bei den Bertrams aufwächst, das Leben schwer. Fanny, die eigentliche Heldin des Romans, trotzt kraft ihrer Unbestechlichkeit und Menschenkenntnis allen Anfechtungen. Und sie wird damit belohnt, dass sie letzten Endes doch noch den Mann heiraten darf, den sie lange Zeit ohne Hoffnung geliebt hat. Jane Austens wie immer von feiner Ironie und scharfer Charakterzeichnung getragener Roman erfreut sich seit seines ersten Erscheinens im Jahr 1814 ungebrochener Popularität. Erst im vergangenen Jahr war eine Neuverfilmung mit Frances O'Connor und Jonny Lee Miller im Kino zu sehen. Jane Austen(1775-1817) gilt als die grosse Dame der englischen Literatur, der es als erster gelang, die Komik des Alltäglichen zu gestalten. Nach aussen hin führte sie ein ereignisloses Leben im elterlichen Pfarrhaus. Ihre Romane jedoch - neben "Mansfield Park" (1814) sind dies vor allem "Verstand und Gefühl" (1811), "Stolz und Vorurteil" (1813), "Emma" (1816), "Northanger Abbey" (1817) und "Anne Elliot oder Die Kraft der Überredung" (1817) - erfreuen sich heute weltweit einer millionenfachen Leserschaft. Fast alle sind mehrfach erfolgreich verfilmt worden."

  • "This extended and annotated version is fully illustrated with all the original drawings. It also includes a detailed introductory annotation on how the book and the plot were created. How well I recall the greatest literary pleasure of my life, its time and place ! A dreary winter's day without, within a generous heat and glow from the flaming grate, and I reclining at my ease on the library lounge, ''Mansfield Park" in hand. Then succeed four solid hours of literary bliss, and an absorption so great that when I mechanically close the book at the last page it is only by the severest effort that I come back to the real world of pleasant indoors and bleak outdoors. I was amazed that I, a hardened fiction reader, should be so transported by this gentle tale of Miss Austen's, and yet I enjoyed to the full the after-taste of her perfect realistic art. This first enthusiasm, however, soon abated, and I began to see flaws, to note *the prolixity and unevenness of the work, and to feel that it was almost school-girlish in tone and sentiment. While the verisimilitude is, indeed, fascinating, the realization is far from profound. And. the characters are too one-sided for full human beings - are only puppets, each pulled by a single string. Edmund Bertram is, perhaps, the most woodeny of these marionettes. Lady Bertram, the languid beauty, seems often overdrawn. Mrs. Norris is a perfect busybody, but a pettiness so absolutely consistent at length rouses our suspicions and irritates us. We feel that human nature, outside of the madhouse, does not fulfill the single types so completely. But in Fanny Price we find no flaw or artistic presentment. Here comes before our eyes a real, a free, a complex human being. ... I am acquainted with no more charming figure in fiction than Fanny; she is so completely, perfectly, deliciously feminine in instinct, feeling, manner and intelligence. - Hiram Stanley."

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>From its sharply satiric opening sentence, Mansfield Park dealas with money and marriage, and how strongly they affect each other. Shy, fragile Fanny Price is the consummate poor relation. Sent to live with her wealthy uncle Thomas, she clashes with his spoiled, selfish daughters and falls in love with his son. Their lives are further complicated by the arrival of a pair of witty, sophisticated Londoners, whose flair for flirtation collides with the quiet, conservative country ways of Mansfield Park. Written several years after the early manuscripts that eventually became Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park retains Austen's familiar compassion and humor but offers a far more complex exploration of moral choices and their emotional consequences. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Amanda Claybaugh is Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University.

  • "Presents the text of Jane Austen's novel about Miss Fanny Price, the poor relation of a wealthy family who possesses only natural goodness to aid her against a witty and lovely rival as they compete for the man they both love, and includes a selection of contemporary materials on issues addressed in the story, and critical essays."
  • "In Jane Austen's third published novel after Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice? young Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthy uncle and aunt? Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram? at Mansfield Park. Raised among her four cousins? Fanny, the poor relation, often goes unobserved in the household? making her a unique observer of the ethics? morals? attitudes and behavior of English society."
  • "At the tender age of ten, Fanny Price is 'adopted' by her rich relations and is removed from the poverty of her home in Portsmouth to the opulence of Mansfield Park. The transplantation is not a happy one. Dependent, helpless, neglected and forgotten, Fanny struggles to come to terms with her new life until, tested almost to the limits of endurance, she assume her rightful role ..."@en
  • "The private and social worlds of three families are revealed through the experiences of the heroine Fanny Price."@en
  • "One of Jane Austen's most profound works, Mansfield Park is a subtle, moving examination of the contrast between superficial charm and true integrity. It tells the story of shy, vulnerable Fanny Price, brought up by rich relations at Mansfield Park with only her cousin Edmund as an ally. When a glamorous couple, Mary Crawford and her brother Henry, arrive from London, their charisma and reckless taste for flirtation dazzle everyone except Fanny, putting her strength of character to its greatest test."@en
  • "Begun in 1811 at the height of Jane Austen's writing powers and published in 1814, Mansfield Park marks a conscious break from the tone of her first three novels, Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice, the last of which Austen came to see as 'rather too light.' Fanny Price is unlike any of Austen's previous heroines, a girl from a poor family brought up in a splendid country house and possessed of a vast reserve of moral fortitude and imperturbability. She is very different from Elizabeth Bennet, but is the product of the same inspired imagination. Mansfield Park shows Austen as a mature novelist with an almost unparalleled ability to render character and an acute awareness of her world and how it was changing. Through the stories of Fanny Price, the Bertrams, and the Crawfords, she tackles the themes of faith and constancy and the threat that metropolitan manners could pose to a rural way of life. Mansfield Park is as amusing as any of Austen's novels, but, according to the critic Tony Tanner, it is also arguable that it is 'her most profound novel (indeed... it is one of the most profound novels of the nineteenth century).'"@en
  • "200th ANNIVERSARY EDITION Mansfield Park is named for the magnificent, idyllic estate that is home to the wealthy Bertram family and that serves as a powerful symbol of English tradition and stability. The novel's heroine, Fanny Price'a 'poor relation' living with the Bertrams'is acutely conscious of her inferior status and yet she dares to love their son Edmund'from afar. With five marriageable young people on the premises, the peace at Mansfield cannot last. Courtships, entertainments, and intrigues throw the place into turmoil, and Fanny finds herself unwillingly competing with a dazzlingly witty and lovely rival. As Margaret Drabble points out in her incisive Introduction, the house becomes 'full of the energies of discord'sibling rivalry, greed, ambition, illicit sexual passion, and vanity,' and the novel grows ever more engrossing right up to Mansfield's final scandal and the satisfying conclusion. Unique in its moral design and its brilliant interplay of the forces of tradition and change, Mansfield Park was the first novel of Jane Austen's maturity, and the first in which the author turned her unerring eye on the concerns of English society at a time of great upheaval. With an Introduction by Margaret Drabble and an Afterword by Julia Quinn."@en
