Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Related Links for Austen and MANSFIELD PARK

Here's a link to the Gutenberg page for Mansfield Park.  I read a hardcopy novel, but I find this useful for being able to search for specific passages, copy and pasting text, etc.

Re: Related Links for Austen and MANSFIELD PARK

Here's the link for the Victorian Web Austen page, with much good background.

Here is a link to an on-line text which may be easier for some to use than the Gutenberg text referenced by another poster.

Here is a good central cite to start Austen research from.

Slight Spoiler! Here is the text of the play, which not to spoil more than necessary I will leave unnamed, which is a significant element in the book. And yes, it was an actual play which Austen's readers would have known about.

And here is a link to the Jane Austen Centre in Bath. Less of this book takes place in Bath than some other Austen books, but the site may still be of interest to some.

My edition has the text of the play following the novel.  I'm at the point where it comes into play, so I am undecided if I want to take a break from the novel to read the play and then return, or whether I would prefer to continue through the novel and then read the play afterwards, as supplemental material.

Here is a link to last year's discussion of Mansfield Park:
 
"Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here." -- Leo Tolstoy

Thanks for this, Peppermill!  I was unaware that there was a recent discussion of this book on bn.com.

Re: Related Links for Austen and MANSFIELD PARK

Mansfield Park was the inaugural book for the Literature by Women board.  Austen is so popular that is probably doesn't even matter how often one of us hosts a book - people will show up in droves :smileyvery-happy:

Yes, people will always love a Jane Austen discussion, and with good reason.

Do you see any significant differences beween the way the LbW group approached Mansfield Park and the way this group is appraoching it?
