Review:

"'Is she queer?--Is she prudish?' These are not quotations from contenders in the brouhaha over Jane Austen's sexuality. They are questions the rakish Henry Crawford in 'Mansfield Park' asks as he wonders about the nerdiest of all heroines, Fanny Price. The erotic charm that makes other women in that novel yield one after another to Henry's desire fails to make a dent on this mousy and withdrawn girl...Henry Crawford's sense that Fanny is either queer or prudish also describes two contending traditions of Austenian reception that have prevailed since the mid-19th century...Those adhering to the elegaic tradition...believe Austen gives us a reassuringly orthodox world...where...the desires of gentlemen and ladies for each other are obviously complementary, mutually fulfilling, and above all inevitable...[In] another, anti-normative tradition...Austen has been suspected of sexual abnormality for a good long time..."

Claudia Johnson, London Review of Books, 10/05/1995

Review:

"What is the matter with Fanny Price, shadow heroine of Jane Austen's 'Mansfield Park'? Why is she so wimpy, nervous, passive, lacking in spirit, so relentlessly correct, so given--when she is invited--to little puffs of sanctimony, and why despite these qualities does she end up the respected mistress of the Bertram family and of their worthy country seat, Mansfield Park?...Not one of [Austen's other] heroines...has begun life as radically disentitled as Fanny Price of Portsmouth, and in the reading and understanding of her character we can bring forward some of our contemporary psychological insights....[O]nce again, Austen has read all the signs and correctly apportioned the rewards."

Vladimir Nabokov, 1980

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. A meticulously-observed tale of the clash between obligation and desire, Jane Austen s Mansfield Park is edited with an introduction and notes by Kathryn Sutherland in Penguin Classics . 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 Bertram as her sole ally. When her uncle Sir Thomas Birtram travels to Antigua, siblings Mary and Henry Crawford arrive in the neighbourhood, bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation. As her female cousins vie for Henry s attention, and even Edmund falls for Mary s dazzling charms, only Fanny remains doubtful about the Crawfords influence and finds herself more isolated than ever. 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. This edition is based on the first edition of 1814. It includes a chronology, additional suggestions for further reading and the original Penguin Classics introduction by Tony Tanner. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature s most famous women writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, Pride and Prejudice , at the age of 22. She was the author of Sense and Sensibility , Pride and Prejudice , Emma , Persuasion , Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey . If you enjoyed Mansfield Park , you may like Elizabeth Gaskell s North and South , also available in Penguin Classics . The most perfect artist among women, the writer whose books are immortal . (Virginia Woolf). These modern editions are to be strongly recommended for their scrupulous texts, informative notes and helpful introductions . (Brian Southam, The Jane Austen Society).
