Books are not life, but then, what is? by Marvin Mudrick( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marvin Mudrick insists on seeing authors and their characters as people. He describes and judges them frankly as we do when we tell our friends about people we want to, or have to, spend time with. A collection such as this is an invitation to meet some of them. We meet heroes and monsters and plenty of people in between: Chaucer, Pepys, Rochester, Boswell, Jane Austen (and Anne Elliot), Dickens (and Pecksniff), Pushkin, Tolstoy, Kafka, Edmund Wilson, and many other novelists, scholars, and critics. We get to know them, so vivid are Mudrick's quotation and commentary. Essay after essay demonstrates that good criticism is itself good life and good literature. - Jacket flap

5 editions published between 1964 and 1979 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a poor cousin, Fannie Price, comes to live at the estate of the sophisticated Bertram family, she suffers from the condescension of her haughty relatives and from the hopeless love she bears for their youngest son. Life becomes even more complicated when she is forced into a rivalry with a charming and vivacious newcomer. Fannie will have to question her most cherished beliefs about herself and her world as she struggles to make a home for herself. Displaying Austen's characteristic irony and perception, Mansfield Park delivers a scathing attack on social conventions that earned it a reputation as her most controversial novel. Also includes Elizabeth Inchbald's play, Lovers' vows (1798), freely adapted by Inchbald from August F.F. von Kotzebue's sentimental melodrama Das Kind der Liebe (1790). Lovers' vows is featured by Jane Austen in Mansfield Park
