And because of Fanny’s grounded nature, kindness, and unwavering principles, characters like Henry Crawford, Sir Thomas, and even Edmund, who faltered due to temptation, changed their views and behaviors.
Historical fiction books like Mansfield Park (historical because we are already in the 21st century) require patience to understand Fanny’s cautious nature. It is unpredictable and nuanced. While Mansfield Park is not one of the bestsellers fiction books of Jane Austen, like Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, it is complicated and courageous.
The substance of the novel is layered beautifully in the surroundings of Fanny Price’s life, which is a stark and shocking contrast to her simple character and her superior understanding of people’s feelings. And that, readers, is exactly what makes her a Jane Austen heroine.
To end, Jane Austen is an expert in satirizing the narrow mindset of society that believes that marriage is the ‘ultimate achievement’ for young ladies, as it is associated with good fortune and a position in society.
It is a must-read by Jane Austen’s fans who can easily understand the humor and sarcasm behind her words and for those who are interested in exploring Bestsellers and fiction books from the 19th century.
