Jane Austen, "Mansfield Park" (Norton Critical Editions)
W.W. Norton & Co. | 1998 | ISBN: 0393967913 | 544 pages | siPDF | 8.1 MB

This Norton Critical Edition of Jane Austen's most ambitious and controversial novel is based on a new authoritative text, which closely follows the one Austen oversaw when the novel was revised and reprinted in 1816. Supporting materials include an introduction, textual annotations, and a contemporary map of England.

"Contexts" provides readers with a rich selection of contemporary materials on such issues as the slave trade, religion, the conduct of women, and landscape design that illuminate Austen's dark and often disturbing novel. Elizabeth Inchbald's adaptation of Lovers' Vows (the play staged by the characters in Mansfield Park) is included, as are writings by Humphry Repton. Thomas Gisborne, Hannah More, and Mary Wollstonecraft, among others.

"Criticism" includes essays on the novel by Jan Fergus, Lionel Trilling, Alistair Duckworth, Nina Auerbach, Claudia L. Johnson, Joseph Litvak, Edward Said, Brian Southam, and Joseph Lew.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are included.
