SUNDAY, June 3rd at 2pm: TEA TIME with Jane Austen

Caledonia continues her exploration of Austen with selections from on of the author's best known works, MANSFIELD PARK (1814).

Fanny Price is sensitive, shy, intelligent, virtuous, with a good sense of morals; and her status at Mansfield Park as a dependent poor relation only intensifies these traits. The story contains much social satire, targeted particularly at the two aunts. It is perhaps the most socially realistic Austen novel, with Fanny's family of origin, the Prices, coming from a much lower echelon of society than most Austen characters.
