A beautiful unabridged 200th Anniversary Edition with 40 Hugh Thomson illustrations and a Foreword
Mansfield Park is the third published novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1814. 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. From early on critical reception has been diverse. To some, the heroine Fanny Price was appealing; to others appalling. Some saw the novel as a straightforward; others as intensely ironic with many disguised allusions. Some have emphasized the novel's traditional values; others have emphasized radical and feminist interpretations.
