This paper describes and analyzes the character of Fanny Price from the novel "Mansfield Park" and contrasts her character to other characters in the novel. The paper explains that Fanny Price's character feels her position in society deeply and acts according to what society expects of her but does not sacrifice her morals or integrity in doing so.

From the Paper:

"While Fanny Price of Mansfield Park is hardly Jane Austen's most flamboyant heroine, she does embody certain positive traits, which distinguish her from the Bertrams and from the rest of her immediate society. Fanny's deep sense of morality contrasts sharply to the self-centered habits of her adoptive mother, Mrs. Bertram, as well as to the conniving, indulgent behavior of Aunt Norris. Her humility and kindness set her apart from her cousins and from the Crawfords as well. In the world of Mansfield Park, only one person treats her kindly - her cousin, Edmund - and it is in her love for him that Fanny comes to embody her most heroic aspects."
