The annotated Mansfield Park
From the editor of the popular Annotated Pride and Prejudice-an edition of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park that makes her story of an impoverished young woman living with her wealthy relatives a more satisfying and fulfilling read.
Juxtaposing the complete text of the novel with annotations on facing pages, along with maps, illustrations, a chronology, and an introduction, David M.

Here you will find historical and social context; definitions of archaic words; citations from Austen's life and letters; and all kinds of details that illuminate the plot.
Reading The Annotated Mansfield Park is like having an incredibly knowledgeable person reading over your shoulder and discussing the book with you-it's perfect for students, for reading groups, and, of course, for Jane-ites everywhere.
