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.Biografía del autor:
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. She is also the author of Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey.
