Mansfield Park

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s novels are known for providing a witty and satirical glimpse into the interior lives of Victorian-era women. Mansfield Park, one of her later novels, is no exception. At 10 years old, Fanny Price is sent away by her impoverished parents to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle, Lady Bertram and Sir Thomas. On their estate at Mansfield Park, Fanny grows into a reflective, moral young woman, despite her cousins constantly mistreating her and reminding her of her lowly station. When the sophisticated Mary and Henry Crawford arrive at Mansfield Park, romantic entanglements, broken engagements, and adulterous affairs ensue. Amidst all this chaos, Austen hooks readers who can’t wait to find out: Will everyone get what they deserve?

Jane Austen’s novels—in which mishaps and mixed signals result in awkward situations and precarious connections—influence so many of the romantic comedies that are written nowadays. In Mansfield Park, Austen keeps us entertained while also exploring the theme of nature vs. nurture…and celebrating the rewards of a kind, virtuous life.

Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism.
