  • "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."
  • "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

  • "Mansfield Park is a novel by Jane Austen, written at Chawton Cottage between 1812 and 1814. It was published in July 1814 by Thomas Egerton, who published Jane Austen's two earlier novels, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice . When the novel reached a second edition, its publication was taken over by John Murray, who also published its successor, Emma . The main character, Fanny Price, is a young girl from a 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 tr."@en
  • "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."

  • "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."

Over time, Fanny comes to demonstrate forcibly those virtues Austen most admired: modesty, firm principles, and a loving heart. As Fanny watches her cousins Maria and Julia 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 and makes clear why she was Austen's own favorite among her heroines. 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'her faith in a social order that combats chaos through civil grace, decency, and wit.

  • "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
