Аннотация

I pay very little regard... to what any young person says on the subject of marriage. If they profess a disinclination for it, I only set it down that they have not yet seen the right person.  Humble and reserved, a young Fanny Price goes to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle at their grand house, Mansfield Park. Growing up with her privileged and indulged cousins, the Bertrams, she lives in the shadows of their glamorous lives, but finds an ally in her kind cousin, Edmund. When the questionable Henry and Mary Crawford come to visit, the house is thrown into disarray as romance flourishes between the young people, forcing Fanny to finally confront the extent of her true feelings for Edmund. Considered Austen's most socially-aware and complex novel, the timid and moral character of Fanny has inspired more debate among modern readers than any of Austen's other female protaganists.
