Episode 39: The Mary Crawford Effect with Charlie @thebookboy
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode I'm  joined by Charlie @thebookboy to discuss Jane Austen's Mary Crawford from Mansfield Park.

Described by some as the real heroine of Mansfield Park, she is a character who divides the community. embodying everything Austen tells us is good such as being outspoken and lively, Mary isn't so dissimilar than Lizzy Bennet and yet she is a polarising character and is placed in binary opposition to the heroine Fanny Price.

This is a fun and interesting conversation to explore the character of Mary from two Mary sympathisers.
