Description-
  • Fanny Price, a poor relation of the rich Bertrams, is reluctantly adopted into the family to be brought up at Mansfield Park, where she is condescendingly treated. Only her cousin Edmund, a young clergyman, appreciates her fine qualities. Fanny soon falls in love with him, but Edmund is, unfortunately, drawn to the shallow and worldly Mary Crawford. Fanny's quiet humility, steadfast loyalty, and natural goodness are matched against the wit and brilliance of her lovely rival. The tension is heightened when Henry Crawford, Mary's equally sophisticated and flirtatious brother, takes an interest in Fanny. Jane Austen's subtle, satiric novel skillfully uses her characters' emotional relationships to explore the social and moral values by which they attempt to order their lives.

About the Author-
  • Jane Austen (1775-1817) was born at Steventon, England, and later moved to Bath. She began to write early for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit. She is now considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Listeners with the fortitude to make it through twelve cassettes of nineteenth-century British social mores will be rewarded with Austen's brilliant commentary on the society of her day and by Johanna Ward's solid reading. Her narrative style is unvoiced and cultured, but makes for difficulty in character differentiation, especially for listeners unaccustomed to this style of both voice and literature. Nevertheless, this is a lively and interesting choice for admirers of Jane Austen, but use cautiously with younger audiences unfamiliar with her work. S.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
