i know you all love a good jane austen book, so let’s move on to mansfield park shall we? it’s pretty typical of austen’s work, love stories gone haywire and a happy-ish ending all set in an idyllic english setting. mansfield park focuses on young fanny price. fanny is from a poor family and she’s sent to live with her rich cousins, the bertrams at mansfield park. because of her background, all her cousins but edmund mistreat her. naturally (should i say ausently?), she falls in love with him. it’s not until her uncle thomas leaves to take care of his plantation that things start to get crazy. these kids, the crawfords show up and start being all fun and fashionable. basically, they all toy with each other’s emotions until fanny and edmund finally realize their incestuous love. okay, there’s more to it (including some juicy scandals) than that but just read it. i’m tired.
