THE BLURB:    

Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.

At a young age, impoverished Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle at their estate called Mansfield Park. In each stage of life, from the age of 10 to adolescence to young adulthood, Fanny encounters a number of people pursuing wealth, status, or pleasure at any cost. To Fanny, she sees very little redeeming qualities in such pursuits, but will her experiences out in the real world lead her to believe that marrying for these underlying conditions supersede marrying for love and happiness?

 

THE AUTHOR:    

Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen’s plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.

THE FIRST LINE:   

About thirty years ago, Miss Maria Ward, of Huntingdon, with only seven thousand pounds, had the good luck to captivate Sir Thomas Bertram, of Mansfield Park, in the county of Northampton, and to be thereby raised to the rank of a baronet’s lady, with all the comforts and consequences of an handsome house and large income.

 

MY THOUGHTS:    

Something of a censure of society, and judgements made based on monetary wealth and status.
