] Why Anne? Not a Fanny fan?
] Question: does one have to identify with Fanny to enjoy Mansfield Park
I can't say that I identify with Fanny either, although I do not dislike her. I don't find the book tedious. But my enjoyment in it is not so much in seeing how the heroine will solve her problems as in seeing what horrible thing Auntie will do next, or what inappropriate thing Mary Crawford will say next.
