] Question: does one have to identify with Fanny to enjoy Mansfield Park
No -- I do not identify at all with Fanny, but I enjoy the novel a great deal (though not as much as P&P, my personal fave). I like the characterizations, and the emphasis on nature, and I even like it when Fanny rhapsodizes over the chapel at Sotherton. I enjoy everything that Jane Austen wrote (which survived) -- I am a complete fan. ;-)
