Review | Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

#QOTD – Which is your least favourite Austen? I haven’t read all of them yet, but Mansfield Park falls behind Persuasion and Pride & Prejudice in many ways. As usual, the plot is centered around marriage and ‘marriage economics’. And, as always, Austen is quite successful at introducing a unique perspective to make things interesting, but Fanny Price is a rigid, boring and a humorless … Continue reading Review | Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

Her heroes fall in … Continue reading Reflections | Jane Austen
