1. Mansfield Park《曼斯菲尔德庄园》

The Jane Austen book club《奥斯汀书会》精讲之四

在这个片段中他们谈到了Jane Austen的三部小说:Mansfield Park《曼斯菲尔德庄园》,Persuasion《劝导》,Pride and Prejudice《傲慢与偏见》。电影中,他们这次聚会讨论的小说是Mansfield Park《曼斯菲尔德庄园》。

Mansfield Park is a novel by Jane Austen, written at Chawton Cottage between 1812 and 1814. It was published in July 1814 by Thomas Egerton.

The main character, Fanny Price, is a young girl from a poor family, raised by her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at Mansfield Park. She grows up with her four cousins, Tom, Edmund, Maria and Julia, but is always treated as inferior to them; only Edmund shows her real kindness. He is also the most virtuous of the siblings: Maria and Julia are vain and spoiled, while Tom is an irresponsible gambler. Over time, Fanny's gratitude for Edmund's kindness secretly grows into love.


2. Horton Hatches the Egg 《霍顿孵蛋》

Horton Hatches the Egg is a book by Dr. Seuss, first published in 1940.

The Jane Austen book club《奥斯汀书会》精讲之四

The book concerns Horton (an elephant) convinced by an irresponsible bird named Mayzie into sitting on her egg while she takes a break--which proves to last for months. Of course, the absurd sight of an elephant sitting atop a tree makes quite a scene.

Horton is laughed at by his jungle friends, exposed to the elements, captured by hunters, forced to endure a terrible sea voyage, and finally placed in a traveling circus. All through the ordeal Horton repeats this refrain:

I meant what I said, and I said what I meant:

An elephant's faithful one hundred percent.

Mayzie finds Horton at the circus just in time to see her egg hatch. She demands the egg back, but is denied it by Horton and onlookers when it hatches into a tiny winged elephant.

The moral of the story is "be responsible, even when it's difficult." This moral is established in several ways. First, Mayzie's demonstrated irresponsibility in leaving her egg for someone else to watch leads to her losing the implied benefit of her egg- a baby Mayzie. Second, Horton's demonstrated responsibility in keeping his promise to Mayzie by staying with the egg, even when it's hard to do so, gives him the benefit of a baby Horton hatching from the egg. Finally, the elephant's ability to stay true and steadfast despite all manner of disasters carries a traditional spiritual message: he is faithful, not only to his external obligations, but to his inner self as well.
