Juxtaposing the complete text of the novel with annotations on facing pages, along with maps, illustrations, a chronology, and an introduction, David M. Shapard’s delightfully entertaining edition brings Austen’s world to life. 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.

About the Authors

Jane Austen

Jane Austen was born in Steventon rectory on 16 December 1775. Her family later moved to Bath, then to Southampton and finally to Chawton in Hampshire. She began writing Pride and Prejudice when she was twenty-two years old. It was originally called First Impressions and was initially rejected by the publishers and only published in 1813 after much revision. She published four of her novels in her lifetime, Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816). Jane Austen died on 18th July 1817. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were both published posthumously in 1818.
