Mansfield Park

Synopsis: At 10, Fanny Price, a poor relation, goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunt's husband, Sir Thomas. Clever, studious, and a writer with an ironic imagination and fine moral compass, she becomes especially close to Edmund, Thomas's younger son. Fanny is soon possessed of beauty as well as a keen mind and comes to the attention of a neighbor, Henry Crawford. Thomas promotes this match, but to his displeasure, Fanny has a mind of her own, asking Henry to prove himself worthy. As Edmund courts Henry's sister and as light shines on the link between Thomas's fortunes and New World slavery, Fanny must assess Henry's character and assert her heart as well as her wit.

Sir Thomas' extraordinary library.

Come along, we haven't got all day.

And here is Sir Thomas' study.

Never disturb him here.

He's weighed down

with some great cares.

This is his personal sanctuary.

The maids' rooms.

Manservants' rooms down there.

You will be my assistant,

you understand.

And here, what was formerly

the nursery and the governor's room,

is now your very own room!

- Excuse me.

- Yes?

How long am I expected

to remain here?

That depends, doesn't it?

But if all goes well...for ever.

"Dear Susy, it seems

that Mother has given me away. "

"And I can augur nothing but misery

from all I've seen at Mansfield Park. "

Don't worry. I'm all for crying.

It makes your hair grow.

Don't make fun of me.

Is it working?

- Is what working?

- My behaviour.

- Is it making you feel better?

- It's certainly distracting.

Good... Anyway, I'm Edmund.

So, who do you miss?

"I told Edmund

about you especially, Susy. "

"He asked me if I wished to write

to you. I said I had no paper. "

"And didn't he give me enough for more

stories than you should ever want!"

"By the way,

Eliza eloped to Paris with her lover."

"Unfortunately,

she lived beyond her means"

"and was imprisoned and partially

eaten by her two young sons."

"But she intends

to murder the guards."

"I'll keep you abreast

of any further developments."

"PS..."

"Could you please assure Mother

that I am improving myself daily?"

The history of England.

Henry Vl.

It was in this reign

that Joan of Arc lived

and made such a fuss

among the English.

They should not have burnt her,

but they did.

Henry Vlll...

I'll save you the task of hearing

what you've already heard,

and myself of recounting

what I do not perfectly recollect,

justice and duty...

That disgrace to humanity,

Jane Austen

Jane Austen (; 16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars. With the publications of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began another, eventually titled Sanditon, but died before its completion. She also left behind three volumes of juvenile writings in manuscript and another unfinished novel, The Watsons. Her six full-length novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime. A significant transition in her posthumous reputation occurred in 1833, when her novels were republished in Richard Bentley's Standard Novels series, illustrated by Ferdinand Pickering, and sold as a set. They gradually gained wider acclaim and popular readership. In 1869, fifty-two years after her death, her nephew's publication of A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced a compelling version of her writing career and supposedly uneventful life to an eager audience. Austen has inspired a large number of critical essays and literary anthologies. Her novels have inspired many films, from 1940's Pride and Prejudice to more recent productions like Sense and Sensibility (1995) and Love & Friendship (2016). more…
