Mansfield Park. Jane Austen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane Austen's timeless works of romantic fiction have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and adored writers in the English language. Now any fan of Austen's sparkling literary satires can collect all six of her full-length novels in magnificent clothbound editions. With covers by award-winning Penguin designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable books make fantastic gifts for lovers of great literature and book design.

Taken from the poverty of her parents' home in Portsmouth, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with her cousin Edmund as her sole ally. During her uncle's absence in Antigua, the Crawford's arrive in the neighborhood bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation. Mansfield Park is considered Jane Austen's first mature work and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound.

Synopsis:

First published in 1814, this is a study of three families - the Bertrams, the Crawfords and the Prices - in which Jane Austen uses the unlikely heroine, Fanny Price, to explore the social and moral values by which these families' lives are ordered.
