Mansfield insest
August 26th, 2015
I love Jane Austen this is my least favorite simply because of my education and aceptability on family romance. I also resent the era idea of what woman should be which has now hopefully changed, at least it has for me.

The East Room: Mansfield Park
January 13th, 2014
Vivid, fast-paced, easier to read in comparison to Austen's other novels. Mansfield Park seems to be a more apparent mash up of many of Austen's conflicting themes about women, men, sexuality, family, duty, independence, liberty and virtue. If you're expecting socially aware text of the slave trade and the exploitation of the working classes. You wont find much. But Mansfield Park is brilliant in its ability to expose the hypocrisy of charity, the condescension of helping others up without treating them as your equal or the futility of assistance without consulting or thinking of a persons actual needs and feelings. In Fanny's physical weakness and belated self-sufficiency, it also illustrates the danger of creating dependency rather than empowerment. At the same time, this is a fantastic illustration of classism, as Austen reveals her partiality for middle-class principles while maintaining a particular regard for the upper-classes. Illuminating and though-provoking, Mansfield Park speaks for sincerity, ethics and wisdom in a world where appearances are everything.

It is Jane Austin afterall. More twists in this one than her others. This one could be called Perfection and Perversion maybe.

Loved this novel by Jane Austen and the humble heroine created by her. Fanny definitely grows on you and you find yourself cheering for her and glad for her well deserved happy ending. Most characters in this novel are engaging and a few, like Fanny, will win your heart and esteem.
