Mansfield Park: Chapters 5-8
There is something about this Mary Crawford and her fuckboi of a brother Henry. They are visitors from the city who are lauded as the height of sophistication and knowledge by the Bertram sisters. Mary Clearly has her eyes set on one of the Bertram brothers, while Henry finds himself flirting with the sisters. But, most egregiously, Mary keeps taking out Fanny's horse.
This week Elle and Catrina talk about the Crawfords and how they are integrating themselves into the party at Mansfield Park. Mary Crawford has a lot of opinions and somehow offends everyone, while still charming their pants off. While Henry revels in the attention he is getting from both Maria and Julia Bertram. We only get to see the beginning of the drama as Mary starts to pull Edmund's attention away from his poor cousin and Henry encourages Maria's flirting.
Also, who asks farmers to lend out their wagons during hay harvesting season? Rude much?
