Overview

This special edition of Mansfield Park includes the famous illustrations by Henry Matthew Brock, originally created in 1898. Brock and his brothers were all successful illustrators of the day and often posed for each other using costumes, props and furniture in their Cambridge studio. Brock's older brother Charles joined him in illustrating other Jane Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions.

Mansfield Park is Jane Austen's version of a Cinderella story. Fanny Price is a poor relation living with her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and their children. Edmund, the second son, ias the only one who treats her with kindness and they develop a strong bond, until the dashing Henry Crawford and his lovely sister Mary come to visit. The Crawfords are outwardly charming, but their indifferent upbringing leaves them unable to distinguish right from wrong, and Fanny must watch her beloved Edmund almost fall into Mary's trap.

Fanny Price is meek and mild, and unfailingly good. When the Crawfords introduce risky activities into her social set, she tries to prevent disaster, but the production of a play leads all the members of the family astray and Edmund almost falls irretrievably in love with the beautiful Mary. Fanny watches with trepidation and much pain, until Edmund's own high sense of morality brings him to the right conclusions about which is the better woman, on the inside.

I finally finished it!! The language was very difficult to understand at times and toward the end it seemed to drag on but overall it was a good read. I can usually read a 1200 page novel in about a week if I continue to have a life while reading it. Mansfield Park took me months. I would get so frustrated trying to figure out what the characters were actually saying to each other I would put it down for weeks at a time.When I would finally pick it up again I oculd only read for an hour before I had a headache from trying to figure out the language. Good story but damn, I needed a dictionary half the time and they speak in old english. Very redundant. ANyway like I said, good story hard to read book.
