Mansfield Park is the study of three families: the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices.

Only her cousin Edmund, a young clergyman, appreciates her fine qualities, and Fanny falls in love with him. Unfortunately, he is drawn to the shallow and worldly Mary Crawford. Fanny's quiet passivity, steadfast loyalty, and natural goodness are matched against the wit and brilliance of her lovely rival.

The novels of Jane Austen : the text based on collation of the early editions by Jane Austen( Book )

118 editions published between 1898 and 1988 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set provides the definitive text of Austen's six great comic masterpieces and her minor works (the latter include three high-spirited efforts written at about age fifteen; a charming fragment, The Watsons , which has been thought to be a sketch for Emma ; and a tantalizing fragment, Sanditon , written in the last year of her life). All six volumes feature splendid early 19th-century illustrations as well as Chapman's detailed explanatory notes. Chapman has collated all the editions published in the author's lifetime and previously unpublished manuscripts, establishing an authoritative text that retains the punctuation, the spelling, and division into volumes of the originals. In addition, at the end of each work he supplies notes on textual matters and appendixes on such matters as the modes of address, or characters, or carriages and travel, as these seem warranted by the text. - Publisher
