Editorial Reviews:
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that makes other women in that novel yield one after another to Henry's desire fails to make a dent on this mousy and withdrawn girl...Henry Crawford's sense that Fanny is either queer or prudish also describes two contending traditions of Austenian reception that have prevailed since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..."

T. C. Boyle

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."

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

Joseph Andrews refuses Lady Booby s advances, she discharges him, and Joseph -- in the company of his old tutor, Parson Adams (one of the great comic figures of literature) -- sets out from London to visit his sweetheart, Fanny. Along the way, the two travelers meet with a series of adventures -- some hilarious, some heartstopping -- in which through their own innocence and honesty they expose the hypocrisy and affectation of others. Joseph Andrews started out as a parody of Richardson s Pamela, but soon left that purpose behind and now is regarded as the first English realistic novel. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780486415888
