Fanny Price weiß genau was sie will: Sie liebt ihren Cousin Edmund, mit dem sie in Mansfield Park, dem prächtigen Landsitz ihrer wohlhabenden Verwandten. In Mansfield Park wächst die aus schwierigen Verhältnissen stammende Fanny Price bei ihrer wohlhabenden Tante und deren vier Kindern auf. Dort wird sie.
Fanny finds solace only in the friendship of the younger son, Edmund, who is planning to be a clergyman. Fanny grows up shy and deferential, caught as she typically is between members of the Bertram family.
Sir Thomas leaves Mansfield Park for Antigua, where he owns plantations. In his absence, two new figures arrive at Mansfield: Henry and Mary Crawford, the brother and sister of the local minister's wife.
Henry and Mary are attractive and cheerful, and they soon become indispensable members of the Mansfield circle. Henry flirts extensively with Maria, who is engaged to marry the boring but wealthy Rushworth.
He also flirts with Julia when it suits his purposes. At first, Mary is interested in Tom, the older son and heir, but she soon realizes that he is boring and not really interested in her.
She finds herself increasingly attracted to Edmund, although the prospect of marrying a clergyman does not appeal to her, and she is often cruel to him on this account.
In the meantime, Fanny has innocently fallen in love with Edmund, although she does not even admit this to herself. Yates, a visiting friend of Tom's, proposes that the group should put on a play.
His idea is eagerly received by all except for Edmund and Fanny, who are horrified at the idea of acting. The play goes on anyways, however; Maria and Henry, as well as Mary and Edmund who has been prevailed upon to take a role to avoid bringing in an outsider to play it , get to play some rather racy scenes with one another.
When one of the women cannot make a rehearsal, Fanny is pressured to take a role. She is almost forced to give in when Sir Thomas makes a sudden entrance, having arrived from Antigua.
Sir Thomas is unhappy about the play and quickly puts a stop to the improprieties. Since Henry has not declared his love, Maria is married to Rushworth.
She and Julia leave Mansfield Park for London. Relationships between the Crawfords and the Bertrams intensify. Edmund nearly proposes to Mary several times, but her condescension and amorality always stop him at the last minute.
He confides his feelings to Fanny, who is secretly upset by them. In the meantime, on a lark, Henry has decided to woo Fanny.
He is surprised to find himself sincerely in love with her. Fanny has become indispensable as a companion to her aunt and uncle, and on the occasion of her brother William's visit, they give a ball in her honor.
Some time after the ball, Henry helps William get a promotion in the Navy. Using this as leverage, he proposes to Fanny, who is mortified and refuses.
But reader and heroine alike also know that by the social standards of Jane Austen, that is a Mission Impossible. Fanny is a true fairytale Cinderella, raised by one negligent and one malevolent aunt at Mansfield Park.
She is reminded at all times that her cousins are superior to her in all respects, and that she has to serve them and be grateful for th Jane Austen's take on Cinderella!
She is reminded at all times that her cousins are superior to her in all respects, and that she has to serve them and be grateful for the right to breathe the same air.
How is the issue going to be solved? The reader knows that Austen won't under any circumstances let any of her main characters marry beneath their entitlement and worth in money, so a miracle is asked for - and it is delivered in the form of a brutal scandal.
Ruthlessly, the author attacks several male and female characters and commits reputation murder, which favours her quiet and consistent favourite Fanny Price, one of the few fictional women Jane Austen seems to have truly liked.
Fanny is not "perfect", as she is poor and capable of feeling both anger and jealousy, but she definitely escapes the ridicule and humiliation which Austen has in store for the vain and shallow characters she despises.
Fanny's wedding in the end is one of the most satisfying Austen weddings I have attended - figuratively speaking - even though I would dread the kind of life she prefers.
That is the Austen conundrum in a nutshell in my opinion - she makes me engage in and follow the path of characters that I wouldn't care for at all in real life, and she makes me turn pages eagerly to figure out the denouement of a plot I wouldn't be bothered to even consider newsworthy in reality.

She's often criticized for not being outspoken and fiesty like the other Austen leads, but Fanny has a quiet strength that I love. In the face of her manipulative and abusive family, she stays calm and strong and refuses to budge on what's in her heart.
She fights for her own heart despite tremendous pressure and I love her so much for that. However, the story was too long for the amount of content in it and the romance was almost an after 3.

I'm supposed to like her because she has a deep appreciation for nature , understands her place in society , is happy to be useful to her betters , is pained to the point of tears when anyone other than Edmund pays any attention to her, is gratingly proper , and can't walk more than 10 steps without having to sit down?
Yes, more of that kind of heroine, please! And as much as I disliked Fanny, I loathed Edmund even more. He is one of those people who will adhere to the rules of soc I hated Fanny Price.
He is one of those people who will adhere to the rules of society that he believes are right, proper, and just, to the point of turning his back on family and friends who don't follow those rules.
But who doesn't find starchy and stifling to be the most incredibly sexy qualities in a man?! I know he certainly melted my panties as the book wore on Was there ever a more obnoxiously deserving couple ever created for literature?
I think not. You know how everyone thinks that they are the hero of the story? Like, even smug assholes and annoying twats - they think they're justified to be smug assholes and annoying twats because of whatever douchy reasons they come up with.
You know who I liked?! Mary Crawford! The villainess of the story is the only tolerable character in this thing. In fact, I'm not even sure she's a bad guy.
I found myself nodding along with almost everything she said. Her worst offenses were that she spoke her mind and thought church was boring.
Considering Edmund went to see her that last time just to say goodbye because she was tainted by what her brother Henry did with his sister -so of course he couldn't try to woo Mary anymore?
What an ass! And then he was mortified that she thought they should forgive their siblings for their dalliance and welcome them back into society.
Get the fuck out of here and go marry your 1st cousin, douchebag. Ride off into the sunset, girl! And as far as romance goes? Nothing was less romantic than watching listening, in my case to Fanny simper and pine over her oblivious cousin, while he chased after Mary.
There was nothing, nothing in his manner that led you to believe deep down he might love Fanny and just not realize it. In the end, there isn't even an on-page ah-ha!
It just says and I'm paraphrasing here , after a while, he realized Fanny might due quite well for a wife and there's an off-page marriage between the two.
The fireworks between those guys were unbelievable! I can only imagine what kind of sparks they had in their marriage. Was I supposed to be rooting for these boring, self-righteous, snobby a-holes to get a Happily Ever After?
Was I really? My personal happy ending includes Mary marrying some awesome rich guy who thinks she's funny and hot, then riding past Edmund's gross little church on their way to whatever amazing honeymoon destination they pick out.
Edmund gazes longingly at the dust her carriage creates as it speeds by, and stupid Fanny realizes she shouldn't have settled for being anyone's second choice.
Jane Austen is a fantastic writer so I can't give it less than 3 stars, but the characters in this sucker were awful.
I'd recommend this book only if you enjoy seeing the Bad Guys win. View all 71 comments. Jul 24, Katie Lumsden rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , 5-stars.

Nevertheless little England hasn't enough rich men, to accommodate deserving ladies. Another married a respectable quiet clergyman, with little money.
Sir Thomas's friend, Reverend Norris good yet dull , gets him a church and a cottage in Mansfield Park, Northampton, on his vast estate.
The kind Sir Thomas is very willin Fanny Price's mother had two sisters as beautiful as she, one married an affluent gentleman Sir Thomas Bertram, and everyone said this would enable her siblings, to do the same.
The kind Sir Thomas is very willing to help the last of the sisters. Still she has pride with a streak of stubbornness Price, to the disgust of her family and soon her own regret.
The fertile Mrs. Price has nine children at the time, when our story commences there will be more. The sister who married the clergyman wrote a letter to Mrs.

A second edition was published in by John Murray, still within Austen's lifetime. The novel tells the story of Fanny Price, starting when her overburdened, impoverished family sends her at age ten to live in the household of her wealthy aunt and uncle; it follows her development and concludes in early adulthood.
Frances "Fanny" Price, at age ten, is sent fro Frances "Fanny" Price, at age ten, is sent from her family home to live with her uncle and aunt in the country in Northampton-shire.
It is a jolting change, from the elder sister of many, to the youngest at the estate of Sir Thomas Bertram, husband of her mother's older sister.
Her cousin Edmund finds her alone one day and helps her. She wants to write to her older brother William. Edmund provides the writing materials, the first kindness to her in this new family.
Her cousins are Tom Jr. Her aunt, Lady Bertram, is kind to her, but her uncle frightens her unintentionally with his authoritative demeanor.
Fanny's mother has another sister, Mrs Norris; the wife of the clergyman at the Mansfield parsonage. Mrs Norris and her husband have no children of their own, and she takes a 'great interest' in her nieces and nephews; Mrs Norris makes a strict distinction between her Bertram nieces and lowly Fanny.
Sir Thomas helps the sons of the Price family find occupations when they are old enough. William joins the Navy as a midshipman not long after Fanny arrives at Mansfield Park.
He visits them once after going to sea, and writes to his sister. You can't see me right now but i'm rolling my eyes so hard i can see the back of my head.

Dear Fanny Price, thank you for keeping me company. Although meek and shy, she is by no means stupid or unopinionated.
Her judgements and assessments of those around her are astute; her sarcasm of a sort that made me giggle on many occasions. While his steadfast loyalty to Mary Crawford was at times annoying, it was entertaining!

Mansfield Park is just Gives you the heebie-jeebies all the s I apologize if you were in any way affected by the recent tilting of the world off its axis.
Gives you the heebie-jeebies all the same. And yes, one, these characters are no Bennet family. Fanny, our main squeeze, is a bit, um, how to say this politely Her first cousin and major lifelong crush, Edmund or Edward or Edvard or Edmonton or one of those Ed-names, I already forget, is equally compelling.
About a quarter of the book is devoted to the sheer horror of a few rich kids in their mid-twenties putting on a play. How improper!
We are on the edge of our seats waiting to find out what happened!! Two thirds of it follows Fanny legitimately agonizing over the unwanted affections of some guy, who is, guess what, so much more interesting than the actual love interest.
Damn it, Jane. The real romance begins and ends in seemingly the last four pages of the book. Luckily, even the worst part of Jane Eyre is still beautifully written, and so is this book.
Bottom line: I would like to pretend that this book is not part of the collected works of Jane Austen thank you very much! Update Further musings on MP turned frivolous after reading Anne's very funny and gify review.
Mary C. PLUS, we have Fanny who knows that everybody apart from herself and Edmund are on the Dark side, but is too afraid to tell and also knows that nobody would believe her.
Like opening an old treasure chest where you think you are familiar with every item and yet you realise there is always something new turning up.
So many thoughts on this particular re-read, I might end up writing a proper review eventually My present musing -Mrs Norris and her Christian name that must not be named!
She is either referred to as Miss Ward or as Mrs Norris. I know this is beacsue she was the eldest daughter among the Miss Wards and I know she does have one, and it's probably Elizabeth of all names!

I moved on from Persuasion to Mansfield Park this week, which struck me as Austen spending hundreds of pages working out through her prose exactly what bothers her about certain people.
I think Austen's profound intelligence makes most people irritating to her. The Crawfords for example. Crawford is vain, silly, and in my opinion, weak.
I think Austen abhors the propensity in some people to guide their behavior by how others will see them. Miss Crawford My accidental Austen binge continues.
Miss Crawford is another prime example. Austen writes "It was the detection, not the offence which she reprobated," which crystalizes her perfectly.
This got me wondering what Austen would think of today's Instagram and Facebook's idealized images and humble-brags posts and the like.
A life lived for exterior fruits, would surely be under censure! It really is refreshing to read Austen against today's backdrop. The internal world is so valued: integrity, lack of artifice, principles.
All wonderful things. How can we continue to make sure these characteristics get their due? Can social media be changed, conquered, swayed?
As for our main character, after Anne Elliot of Persuasion Fanny Price struck me a confused and very uncomfortable young woman, while Elliot, to use a Austen turn of phrase, was "quite fixed in her character.
In many ways Mansfield Park felt more complex than Persuasion, there are so many highly developed characters, not just our heroine.
I'm sure it's another book that deserves a rereading from time to time.

Shelves: favorites , literature. I have seen no small amount of reviews toting Fanny Price as Austen's least likable heroine, and to be honest I'm not sure where they get that impression from.
Granted, Fanny's characteristics often shine by what they are not, next to the undesirable character traits of those around her A I have seen no small amount of reviews toting Fanny Price as Austen's least likable heroine, and to be honest Austen's world is full of societal values so foreign to us now, that perhaps we don't know how to appreciate the beauty of modesty when it is truly expressed, and not showcased Is that now mutually exclusive for heroine status?
But here is the truth to this world so concerned with appearances Fanny Price is indeed a daring character after all.
She was brought up in a world foreign to her, and was raised by a constant discussion of her inferior status. It is from this perspective that our heroine decides the only place she can rebel from is her heart Personal strength does not equal likability View all 16 comments.

A fair warning to you all: I cannot review this book properly without giving away its content, so there will be unhidden spoilers!
We start off this book with the wedding of three sisters. Norris marries a clergyman, and one Mrs. Price marries a Royal Marine. Into this family Fanny is born as the eldest of 9 children.
One day her mother decides to give year-old Fanny Price to her aunt to live and be tutored at Mansfield Park Lady Bertram's estate until she gets married.
Unfortunately, the aunt isn't exactly very interested in any children not even her own and the rest of the family don't treat Fanny too well either especially Mrs.
Norris, her other aunt, on whom Sir Thomas relies heavily because of his wife's apathy. Except for when Fanny is denied proper heating, leading to sickness, it's the perfect example of polite mobbing.
This was actually more maddening than if they had hit her constantly. The only person Fanny can lean on is her cousin Edmund second son of the Bertrams.
The others are It doesn't help that the oldest girl, Maria, gets showered with compliments and affection from Mrs. Norris while Fanny is always reminded of how poor she is and that she should just be grateful to be allowed to live at Mansfield Park although she is a burden.
Anyway, 6 years later, Sir Thomas leaves to go deal with some "trouble" at his plantation in Antigua and it is this plantation that is Jane Austen's strongest political criticism I have ever seen.
Many say it was "just" a way to get Sir Thomas away for a while so the other events could unfold, but Jane Austen could have come up with something less tricky than Antigua.
No, this witty author knew exactly what she was doing. Because yes, back then Antigua was a British colony and slavery was still very common.
Which means that a big part of the Bertram fortune if not all comes from slavery of all things. We see how bad it is when Sir Thomas takes his oldest son along to make him "grow up" but the experience shatters poor Tom and makes his drinking problem only much worse.
While Sir Thomas and Tom are away, match-making for the oldest Bertram daughter the aforementioned brat Maria is taking place. Also, the Crawfords brother and sister arrive and what can only be described as a romantic mess ensues.
The Crawfords are often described as "worldly". Well, I have some other choice words for them. Tom comes back from Antigua earlier than his father and together with his friend Yates and the Crawfords, a play is rehearesed that is, let's say, of dubious moral character for the time.
However, everyone but Fanny participates. In fact, Fanny seems to be the only one not blinded by pretentiousness. When Sir Thomas comes back to find the whole house engaging in flirtation under the pretense of rehearsing for the play, he is very upset but at least finally sees that Fanny is a good young woman and not just some burden.
A lot of other stuff happens, like Maria getting married to a man she doesn't love in order to be well off as is expected of her and Henry Crawford goes after Fanny first because he wants to play a game, then because her rejection intrigues him.
Fanny however refuses him, much to Sir Thomas' anger who thinks she is ungrateful you know, because the poor girl should be so flattered to get a proposal from someone as well off as Henry Crawford.
In order to teach Fanny some humility, he therefore sends her home to her parents and what a desolate place that is!
The contrast between peaceful Mansfield Park and the dirty, desolate Portsmouth could not be extremer and illustrates another powerful political criticism of the author: while at Mansfield Park, everyone can pretend life is good, but in reality there are other places that are off much worse, and not everything about the Regency era smells like roses.
We also get the theme of adultery through Henry Crawford and Maria. Maria's husband files for divorce after the affair is made public and she is not only shunned in society but the family sends her off to "live in another country" to keep the scandal as far away from them as possible while Henry Crawford who could have saved the situation by marrying Maria but refused gets away unscathed.
In this climate Fanny returns to Mansfield Park where Tom has fallen ill all the drinking had to have some negative effect at some point , the younger daughter Julia has eloped with Tom's friend Yates because she feared her father's anger she knew about the affair but kept quiet , and Mary Crawford actually says to Edmund that Tom dying would be a great opportunity for him she and Edmund were romantically involved but she always wanted him to be more ambitious; she also defends her brother's affair, only lamenting that it was discovered and she actually blames Fanny for the whole thing!
Thus, everyone finally realizes that even a person that comes from money can be rotten. Edmund is shattered but upon reflection sees how important Fanny is to him and proposes to her.
Tom gets better, is a changed man, and Yates turns out to be a good husband. Fanny finally takes her place as the moral compass of the Bertram family.
So this novel is one big exploration of morals. We have Sir Thomas who wants his house in order, commands respect and values morals but makes money off slavery and sends his own daughter away to distance himself from scandal.
We have Tom who can't deal with the ugliness of real life. We have Maria who just wants to be loved and therefore does the completely wrong thing.
We have Edmund who knows better but is blinded. We have Mrs. Norris who goes on and on about class and money, not realizing that "the burden" actually is the only good person at Mansfield Park.
We have the Crawfords with their materialism and their arrogant view that, because of their social status, they are allowed whatever they want. We have Yates, who stayed by Tom's side and later takes great care of Julia.
And, finally, we have Fanny herself who starts out completely blue-eyed, then gets more and more disillusioned, but always keeps her heart in the right place.
This book never made it into my top 3 of Jane Austen's body of work but maybe it should. I mean it's the only one in which Jane Austen went this far with her criticism - not only of society for its treatment of women, but also of politics!
I didn't like Fanny too much as a character because she was far too passive for my taste and the whole pining for Edmund was annoying but because of the typically beautiful writing style, wit and dry humour in certain situations I didn't mind.
Also, what's up with Edmund?! I mean, I'm buying into his infatuation with Mary Crawford but after finally realizing what a bad woman she is, he swears to never get over her only to propose to Fanny 5 minutes later?!
So yeah, lots of thoughts after re-reading this book and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants an intelligent classic with a brilliant writing style and lots of important themes.

Character was her strong suit and there's some good'uns here in. Within Mansfield Park there are characterizations so delicate and actions of importance utterly unassuming.
Some seem meaningless in their modesty. Excellent work by a diligent author. Dangerous pitfalls for the casual reader. The who "I can not but think good horsemanship has a great deal to do with the mind.
The whole novel overall moves along steadily with a dim flash of excitement here or a trying time there, never altering much above or below its middling pace.
That's not a ringing endorsement, but nor is it condemnation. No, this is condemnation There is too much time taken up in mundane description: the planning of a play that never comes off, for one.
Oh yes, certainly the play held importance in that it provided Austen a stage to showcase her principal players. But could that not have been accomplished with another scene, one that drives the narrative with more force?
Fanny Price, our heroine is too prudish to warm up to, and the main object of her - I'd say "desire," but that's putting it far stronger than Austen did - is a man setting himself up for a parson's life.
They are both a couple of moral, goodie-two-shoes and you long for some mild vice to surface and show them to be human.
Heros and villains appear on the scene too obviously. Hovering halos and black hats are almost more than imaginary.
Some 'gray area' is introduced in the main "villain," but it's slight and see-through. Intentionally so? Yes, but it could've been handled with more art and the skill Austen showed she possessed in other works.
The end is wrapped up all too quickly and with criminal simplicity tantamount to saying, "I don't like her after all, I like you, so let's get married!

I'm not used to that as a main character in an Austen book. Still, it works. She's shy and sensitive, and while we all like to poo-poo such characters in novels, they're generally quite wonderful people in real life.

Otherwise, I probably would have been up in arms against the stupid man who just HAD to have her and all the family members and friends who just HAD to have her marry the cad.
What's up with these people? If a girl says, no, it should be NO. Quite besides that, I really enjoyed the tale and the twists and turns, from the awful production of the play to the horse-riding to the nasty social crap in a society known for being really crappy with social crap.
Still, if it wasn't for Fanny being so likable and beset amongst all her betters, I'm not quite sure I'd have cared so much. This novel walked a fine line and I liked it quite a lot.
In any lesser hand, this would have been an unqualified disaster. View all 7 comments. Mansfield Park is quite a different work from the rest of Jane Austen novels.
I can safely say so since I've read all other novels prior to reading this. Jane Austen novels have a sort of set form, characters, and a passionate and exuberant writing style.
Even in her, mature work such as Persuasion where the tone is much graver than the rest of her works, these elements are present to a varying degree.
But in Mansfield Park , a certain attempt to deviate, experimenting a new writing style m Mansfield Park is quite a different work from the rest of Jane Austen novels.
But in Mansfield Park , a certain attempt to deviate, experimenting a new writing style more akin to the Victorian-era, and non-conformity to her clear cut form can be seen.
The story is more complex and deep. It penetrates not only into social problems and human conduct thus influenced, but it also penetrates deep into the human mind, its thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
Thematically too one can sense a difference. While the story treads on the common grounds of social discrimination and class distinction, it also departs from there to go into more complex issues.
All these make Mansfield Park stands apart from the rest of Jane Austen's novel. The story has quite a focus on women's education. Jane Austen expounds on the kind of education that needs to be instilled in girls.
Yes, they need to be accomplished, smart, and elegant, but all this should come secondary to the moral righteousness and a sense of duty.
The Bertram sisters, Maria and Julia's thoughtless actions spin from the failure to instill in them the right morals, sense of duty they owe to their family, and humility.
Their indolent mother, over-indulgent aunt, and authoritative father had made them accomplished but have failed to make them wise and moral. The story also exposes the dependable position of women and also the dependability of the poor on their rich friends.
The females who didn't have an independent fortune settled on them and could command it had to be depended on male authority for their comfort and happiness.
This was a very trying position for women, for they were no more than "objects" that could be "possessed' and "handled" according to the whim and fancy of the male benefactor - be it father, brother, or husband.
Stemming up from personal experience, Jane Austen had no reservation in sharing her opinion on the subject.
Mansfield Park brings us a set of complex characters, not so clear cut or markedly categorized except for perhaps one or two.
Interestingly this is the only time in my history with Jane Austen that I didn't care much about the hero or heroine.
Edmund is kind, principled, and good-hearted, but he is weak and not spirited. Edmund is also a very poor judge of character. His love is misplaced.
His understanding affected. The vulgarity of Mary Crawford is to Edmund "the liveliness of mind"! Altogether he was not an admirable hero.
Fanny is virtuous, loyal, and steady. Her dependability makes her timid, but when calls for the occasion, she shows unusual strength, courage, and spirit.
She is a fair judge of character but a bit too opinionated for my taste. I didn't dislike the character, but I couldn't care for either.
Austen's hero and heroine lack the liveliness and spirit. It is quite funny, for the secondary important characters - the Crawfords and the Bertram sisters were quite full of them!
The story didn't have a marked plot but everything was neatly tied in the end to give the reader enough satisfaction in the story.
However, I would have enjoyed a Fanny - Henry union which would have been more exciting. But it seems Jane Austen believes that "once a rake, is always a rake" and cannot be reformed by the power of love!
I feel very happy and accomplished. From an objective point of view, however, it could be one of her best works. Its tone, colour, and style are more advanced than her other novels.
But I love the lively, exuberant, and satirical Jane Auten to the grave and solemn writer of Mansfield Park. If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.
Here's what may leave all painting and all music behind, and what poetry only can attempt to describe!

When I look out on such a night as this, I feel as if there could be neither wickedness nor sorrow in the world; and there certainly would be less of both if the sublimity of Nature were more attended to, and people were carried more out of themselves by contemplating such a scene.
I waited till I could catch him alone in the playground without his bunch of cronies around him. I asked him then if he'd care to repeat what he'd said before.
He said he didn't. The old adage you can't judge a book by its cover surely applies to the title as well. What's next? Nick Hornby's "About a Boy" should only appeal to paedophiles?
Such immature, hating comments belong in the s. If you're into this kind of thing, click-through. View 1 comment. This definitely wasn't Austen's best novel, and it has nothing on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice.
Instead of it being the plot or the characters, it was purely Austen's wit and uniquely wonderful writing alone, that carried me through Mansfield Park.
To be frank, I don't like Fanny Price. She was too accepting of her situations, she remained silent when she could have spoken up, and it was painfully clear to me that she thought it dreadful to exert herself too much in fear of beco This definitely wasn't Austen's best novel, and it has nothing on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice.
She was too accepting of her situations, she remained silent when she could have spoken up, and it was painfully clear to me that she thought it dreadful to exert herself too much in fear of becoming out of breath.
Fanny, I think you should join me in chopping some wood. Edmund was just as irritating and slightly more forgettable, but we must remember readers, that as a female, I am expected to find a man such as Edmund irresistible to the point of not being able to stand upright.
I can tell you now, it will never happen. And so I read on, and I became suffocated by Fanny's relentless longing for Edmund, especially when he was going after another woman Mary Crawford who I think was too good for Edmund.
Mary Crawford loves speaking her mind, and found attending church services tedious! What's not to love? I detest how Edmund suddenly realises, like a swift slap on the back, that Fanny is apparently the woman for him, not Mary Crawford.
And obviously, Fanny Price being Fanny Price, accepts this, and is okay with being second best. How can I be content with a woman undermining her worth to a man who reeks of arrogance and pomposity?
I love Jane Austen as she has a beautiful way of writing, and a style that nobody can match, but for the case of Mansfield Park, it just completely failed my expectations.
The books are more very interesting character studies. Some of her scruples seem trifling to 21st century eyes but they are in keeping with the times.
Jul 19, Diane rated it it was amazing Shelves: british-charm , jane-austen , movie-adaptation , audiobooks , classics. Sweet, endearing Fanny Price.
Fanny is so good and is so perceptive about her own morals and feelings that reading this novel always makes me resolve to be a kinder and more gracious person.
There is strength in kindness. Fanny is not physically strong, but her character is. She protects her heart, and she earnestly tries to help wherever she can.

Born into a poor family, when she's 10 she is adopted by her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, and goes to live on his family's estate at Mansfield Park.
There, she is greeted with coolness from everyone but her cousin Edmund, to whom she grows deeply attached. Fanny grows up, gets an education and learns the ways of polite society.
The story picks up when the bewitching Mary Crawford and her brother, Henry, come to visit. Henry flirts with all the young women in the house, and Mary teases Edmund until he's fallen under her spell.
Only Fanny sees the true colors of the Crawfords, and by the end of the novel she's been proven right. Mansfield Park was one of the books I took with me on my trip to England last year, and I loved it so much that I couldn't bring myself to write a review.
I mean, what can I say about this great work by Jane Austen that hasn't been said before? But when my stack of unreviewed books grew so tall that it threatened to topple over, I resolved to do better and attacked the pile with vigor.
Hence the influx of reviews this past week. If you regularly follow me on Goodreads, my apologies for the glut. When I had cleared enough of the stack and found Miss Fanny still waiting for me, I pulled that old trick of deciding I needed to reread the book before I could write about it.
I listened to it on audio, and it was a delight! There is so much to admire in Austen's writing, especially in her sharp critiques of human behavior.

I hope you find it endearing. I think this was my third read of this book: First read: ? Second read: May Third read: March Favorite Quotes "But there certainly are not so many men of large fortune in the world, as there are pretty women to deserve them.
Her sentiments towards him were compounded of all that was respectful, grateful, confiding, and tender. It is not there, that respectable people of any denomination can do most good.
Here's repose! Here's what may leave all painting and all music behind, and what poetry only can attempt to describe. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences.
The memory is sometimes so retentive, so servicable, so obedient -- at others, so bewildered and so weak -- and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond control!
We are to be sure a miracle every way -- but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting, do seem peculiarly past finding out.
It would be something to be loved by such a girl, to excite the first ardours of her young, unsophisticated mind! No cold prudence for me.
I am not born to sit still and do nothing. If I lose the game, it shall not be from not striving for it. They are two distinct orders of being.
