A Lesson of Self-reflection and self-conscience
After reading the MansfieldPark, the first thought appearing in my head is this is a little bit weird but reasonable story, and it also let me learn something important.
In this novel, Fanny, growing up with her cousins Tom, Edmund, Maria and Julia, experiences many dramatic things tasting human nature, and the encounters with other different types of people, including the dashing Henry Crawford and Mary Crawford, also reveal some meaning. Although born from a slim-pursed family, Fanny has a good conscience, sees through their shallow veneer, and keeps her principles from beginning to the end.
Take the acting for example, even though Edmund, who she believes is the only one upright and rational person, also takes part in this inadequate acting due to love’s power, she still insists on the right side, resisting joining in. Another example is when Mr. Crawford, who had once been her cousins Maria and Julia’s flirter, woos her and proposes to her, she still considers him dishonest and crooked, declining his offer.
