Mansfield Park is the third novel by Jane Austen, written at Chawton Cottage between February 1811 and 1813. Mansfield Park is a pygmalion morality epic. Mansfield Park is the most controversial of Austen's major novels. Regency critics praised the novel's wholesome morality, but many modern readers find Fanny's timidity and disapproval of the theatricals difficult to sympathise with and reject the idea (made explicit in the final chapter) that she is a better person for the relative privations of her childhood. The story contains much social satire, targeted particularly at the two aunts. One reviewer opined: It might be the most quietly subversive of Austen's novels. The ebook Mansfield Park from Animedia Company contains the introduction by Austin Dobson, and more than 50 colorful and black-and-white illustrations by Charles Edmund Brock and Hugh Thomson.
