The paper attempts to show how religion in the novel "Mansfield Park" is the dominant theme. The paper illustrates how religion offers a perspective on the nature of the characters and the way in which they interact with the rest of the actors on the narrative scene. The paper also shows how religion points out several aspects of the traditional belief in the religiousness of the time while it also addresses indirectly the issue of slavery as a corollary of religion and morals. Finally, the paper demonstrates how we see the power of religion as being an equal replacement to the power of social demands.

From the Paper:

"English literature is considered to be one of the most interesting and artistically rewarding experiences for any literature fan. It shares the views of an environment which is complex in its social and cultural elements. At the same time it points out the perspectives of writers who have been deeply influenced by the period of their existence in a more profound manner as the rest of literature writers. In this sense, Jane Austen is viewed as one of the most complex literature writers, for her dedication to her work as well as for the way in which she managed to convey the message across to her readers. Some of the most important novels of her literary creation include "Pride and Prejudice", "Emma", as well as "Sense and Sensibility" which have all represented important sources for inspiration for later authors of the 19th and 20th century."
