“Mansfield Park is considered Jane Austen’s first mature work and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound…unique in its moral design and its brilliant interplay of the forces of tradition and change.”—Penguin Random House
“Ignore its uptight reputation—Mansfield Park seethes with sex and explores England’s murkiest corners.”—The Telegraph
“While Mansfield Park appears in some ways to continue where Pride and Prejudice left off, it is a much darker work, which challenges the very values (of tradition, stability, retirement and faithfulness) it appears to endorse.”—Wordsworth Classics
“Never did any novelist make more use of an impeccable sense of human values.”—Virginia Woolf
