For Fanny, particularly amidst her sense of deprivation, her "dear, dear friends" at Mansfield Park--friends that are things as well as people--are overfreighted with idealized, personal, moral and social meanings that they do not bear, and if Fanny seems more admirable than Susan, it is not because her understanding of things is more clear-sighted.
My main reservation about this book is that it is overfreighted with detail, so that the overall framework of claims about gender and performance rather creaks to contain the mass of particular observations.
