ABSTRACT
Examines the legibility of Jane Austen's epistolary novel "Mansfield Park" and the distinction of the Sotherton garden as both scene and text in the novel. Argument on the tendency of eighteenth-century fiction and gardenist commentary to view place as a text which yields up meaning through an active reading process; Common trope of associating the novel's pulpit oratory with the garden; Rhetorical structure of the novel which directs the reader's attention.
