‘Mansfield Park’ is Jane Austen’s most profound and perplexing novel. Sutherland shows that it challenges the very values (tradition, stability, retirement and faithfulness) it appears to endorse. This edition includes a new chronology, and additional suggestions for further reading.

Description

‘Full of the energies of discord – sibling rivalry, greed, ambition, illicit sexual passion and vanity’ Margaret Drabble

Jane Austen’s profound, ambiguous third novel is the story of Fanny Price, who is accustomed to being the poor relation at Mansfield Park, the home of her wealthy plantation-owning uncle. She finds comfort in her love for her cousin Edmund, until the arrival of charismatic outsiders from London throws life at the house into disarray and brings dangerous desires to the surface. Mansfield Park is Austen’s most complex work; a powerful portrayal of change and continuity, scandalous misdemeanours and true integrity.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Kathryn Sutherland
