Shy, fragile Fanny Price is the consummate "poor relation." Sent to live with her wealthy uncle Thomas, she clashes with his spoiled, selfish daughters and falls in love with his son. Their lives are further complicated by the arrival of a pair of witty, sophisticated Londoners, whose flair for flirtation collides with the quiet, conservative country ways of Mansfield Park.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RWritten several years after the early manuscripts that eventually became &&LI&&RSense and Sensibility&&L/I&&R and &&LI&&RPride and Prejudice&&L/I&&R, &&LI&&RMansfield Park&&L/I&&R retains &&LB&&RAusten&&L/B&&R’s familiar compassion and humor but offers a far more complex exploration of moral choices and their emotional consequences.&&LBR&&R&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&R&&L/B&&R &&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RAmanda Claybaugh&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R &&L/B&&Ris Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University.
