Review: Mansfield Park (Penguin Classics)

User Review  - Mark - Goodreads

My wonderful English teacher at school, Mr Flint, encouraged us to always read around the writer. So at A'level, studying 'Emma' he urged us to read the other five Austens. Thus 'Mansfield Park' first ... Read full review

User Review  - Jason Koivu - Goodreads

"I can not but think good horsemanship has a great deal to do with the mind." Jane Austen always did a great job of planting ridiculous declarations in the mouths of characters she wished to discredit ... Read full review

Page 476 - LET OTHER PENS DWELL ON guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore every body, not greatly in fault themselves, to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.
Page 329 - I had thought you peculiarly free from wilfulness of temper, self-conceit, and every tendency to that independence of spirit which prevails so much in modern days, even in young women, and which in young women is offensive and disgusting beyond all common offence.
Page 396 - Thrush must be now pre-eminently interesting. A day or two might show the difference. She only was to blame. Yet she thought it would not have been so at Mansfield. No, in her uncle's house there would have been a consideration of times and seasons, a regulation of subject, a propriety, an attention towards every body which there was not here.
Page 456 - She sat in a blaze of oppressive heat, in a cloud of moving dust; and her eyes could only wander from the walls marked by her father's head, to the table cut and knotched by her brothers, where stood the tea-board never thoroughly cleaned, the cups and saucers wiped in streaks, the milk a mixture of motes floating in thin blue, and the bread and butter growing every minute more greasy than even Rebecca's hands had first produced it.
Page 406 - The living in incessant noise was, to a frame and temper delicate and nervous like Fanny's, an evil which no superadded elegance or harmony could have entirely atoned for. It was the greatest misery of all. At Mansfield, no sounds of contention, no raised voice, no abrupt bursts, no tread of violence...
Page 478 - He had suffered, and he had learned to think : two advantages that he had never known before ; and the self-reproach arising from the deplorable event in Wimpole Street, to which he felt himself accessory by all the dangerous intimacy of his unjustifiable theatre, made an impression on his mind which, at the age of six-and-twenty, with no want of sense or good companions, was durable in its happy effects. He became what he ought to be : useful to his father, steady and quiet, and not living merely...
Page 251 - I stood in to the north-east — that is, to the principal road through the village — must be all laid together, of course ; very pretty meadows they are, finely sprinkled with timber; They belong to the living, I suppose. If not, you must purchase them. Then the stream — something must be done with the stream, but I could not quite determine what. I had two or three ideas.
Page 404 - She was a manager by necessity, without any of Mrs. Norris's inclination for it, or any of her activity. Her disposition was naturally easy and indolent, like Lady Bertram's ; and a situation of similar affluence and do-nothingness would have been much more suited to her capacity than the exertions and self-denials of the one which her imprudent marriage had placed her in. She might have made just as good a woman of consequence as Lady Bertram, but Mrs. Norris would have been a more respectable mother...
Page 476 - My Fanny, indeed, at this very time, I have the satisfaction of knowing, must have been happy in spite of every thing. She must have been a happy creature in spite of all that she felt, or thought she felt, for the distress of those around her.
