Mansfield Park


I came across these two interesting quotes regarding our heroine . . .

Hiram Stanley wrote he was "acquainted with no more charming figure in fiction than Fanny; she is so completely, perfectly, deliciously feminine in instinct, feeling, manner, and intelligence, and in every way a most engaging revelation of a budding womanliness."

BUT

Lionel Trilling said, "nobody could like the heroine of Mansfield Park."

What do you think? I'm leaning towards the latter. Care to discuss?
