Overview

Listen to audio presented by Literary Affairs: Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park.

View our feature on Jane Austen.

Begun in 1811 at the height of Jane Austen’s writing powers and published in 1814, Mansfield Park marks a conscious break from the tone of her first three novels, Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice, the last of which Austen came to see as “rather too light.” Fanny Price is unlike any of Austen’s previous heroines, a girl from a poor family brought up in a splendid country house and possessed of a vast reserve of moral fortitude and imperturbability. She is very different from Elizabeth Bennet, but is the product of the same inspired imagination.
