Mansfield Park (Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years, Mansfield Park has come to be regarded as Austen's most controversial novel. It was published in two editions in her lifetime and the 1814 and 1816 texts are fully collated in this work--allowing readers to see the differences between the first edition and the second. This includes some important amendments made by Jane Austen herself. Also included, with a brief note on Elizabeth Inchbald, is the text of Lovers' Vows, the play around which much of the plot of Mansfield Park revolves.
