      I have often heard it said that Mansfield Park is one of the least enjoyable books and this is due in large part to the weakness of its central protaganist, Fanny Price, who is sent to live with her wealthy relatives.

      I understand why they see it this way. For most of the novel, Fanny does what her rich


      relations desire, caring for them almost in the manner of a servant, which is what they view the poor girl has. I do not agree with those critics, however, that believe that Fanny is weak.

      I believe that her kindness has cast a certain false vision on Fanny. What many don’t look at is her denial to compromise her morals. Fanny, in many regards, is one of the bravest literay characters of all time for the simple fact that she does not give in to peer presure.

      her romantic interest in a play, Fanny will not give in to his pleadings, seeing the play as immoral.

      She also will not marry Henry Bertram, though her Uncle belittles her when she refuses.

      I was disappointed in the movie version of the film and the liberties it took. They tried to change the character of Fanny, adding some

      I, for one, enjoyed this book the way it was written,seeing why Austen was proud of her most misunderstood character and wrote her exactly the way she did.
