Inhalt/Klappentext
'There certainly are not so many men of large fortune in the world, as there are pretty women to deserve them'

Mansfield Park is a study of three families - the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices - with the isolated figure of the heroine, Fanny Price, at its centre. Fanny's quiet passivity, her steadfast loyalty and love for the son of the family who regard her as the poor relation, and who have taken her under their roof, are among the qualities whose true worth is not appreciated until they are tied against the brilliant and witty Henry and Mary Crawford, the unfortunate consequences of whose influence are felt by everyone. Jane Austen uses Fanny's emotional involvement with the people around her to explore the social and moral values by which she and they try to order their lives.

First published in 1814, the text of this edition is taken from R.W. Chapman's Oxford edition, edited by James Kinsley, with a new bibliography and introductory essay by Marilyn Butler.
