Publicada en 1814, Mansfield Park es, probablemente, la novela más densa y compleja de la autora, todo un prodígio de arquitectura narrativa y de profundidad psicológica.Fanny Price es una niña todavía cuando sus tíos la acogen en su mansión de Mansfield Park, rescatándola de una vida de estrecheces y de necesidades. Allí, ante su mirada amedrentada, desfilará un mundo de ocio y de refinamiento en el que las inocentes diversiones alimentarán maquinaciones y estrategias de seducción.
