Of course I was just as ignorant as the rest, in absolute disbelief that the ancient, weathered hunk of rotting timber could ever be anything more than just that....   [tags: short story]

Mansfield Park was the first novel that Austen had used this third person omniscient narration, rather than making the reader think and come up with their own feelings and how the character is handling a situation, the nar...   [tags: Novel, Fiction, Jane Austen, Character]
