At thecenter of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park isFanny Price, the classic ';poor cousin' who has beenbroughtto live withthe rich Sir Thomas Bertram and his wife as an act of charity. Over time, Fanny comes to demonstrate forcibly those virtues Austen most admired: modesty, firm principles, and a loving heart. As Fanny watches her cousins Maria and Julia cast aside their scruples in dangerous flirtations (and worse), and as she herself resolutely resists the advantages of marriage to the fascinating but morally unsteady Henry Crawford, her seeming austerity grows in appeal and makes clearwhy she was Austen's own favorite among her heroines.

Mansfield Park encompasses not only Austen's great comedic gifts and her genius as a historian of the human animal, but her personal credo as wellher faith in a social order that combats chaos through civil grace, decency, and wit. With an introduction by Peter Conrad.
