Maria Returns: Barbados to Mansfield Park


The Common Room, University House, ANU, on 3 May 2014 from 2-4pm

The guest speaker will be Susannah Fullerton, President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia.

Roslyn Russell, Maria ReturnsRussell’s novel is being published in the year we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mansfield Park, Austen’s third novel to be published. In her novel, Russell explores what might have happened to Maria Bertram after her disgrace and exile from Mansfield Park at the end of the novel. As you might have surmised from the subtitle, a visit to the sugar plantations in the West Indies seems to be part of her future! What will Maria think of slavery when she sees it first hand?
