Favorite Austen novel!
June 6, 2016
Wow I think Mansfield Park is my favorite of Jane Austen's six novels! I emotionally connected with this story more intensely than with the others. And though a lot of people dislike Fanny Price, I loved her and could empathize with her the most deeply out of all the Austen heroines, partly because I can relate to Fanny the most. :)
I liked Edmund a lot too, as he's a wonderful person, but he made me angry sometimes because of how unaware he is.
Hmmm one of Jane Austen's acquaintances also alluded to this, but Mansfield Park seems to be technically less sophisticated (in language) than for instance Pride and Prejudice; but emotionally, Mansfield Park grabbed me more. I loved Pride and Prejudice too, but I could personally relate more to the lonely, virtually friendless Fanny Price, than with the confident, witty Elizabeth Bennet.
