] what are the Fanny Wars?
Raucous and rancorous disputes (well, at least for AUSTEN-L ) as to whether Mansfield Park (or at least its ending) is or is not a "failure", and whether or not Fanny Price is at all admirable as a character or successful as a literary heroine. Is that neutral and objective enough for you? ;-)
I have something on the web-page http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~churchh/austen-l.html (click on "The Most Controverisal Topic on AUSTEN-L").
