Abstract

With moral and social content of a setting, characters’ personal traits are changed and shaped. In this essay, the role of social texture on the formation of individuals’ characters will be examined in the novel “Mansfield Park” by Jane Austen in which the story takes place during the 19th century, in England city and country settings. Furthermore, the term “social texture” will be accepted and used as the effect of the setting on the development of the personalities of the characters through social status and the current moral and social understandings of the given time and place. Social texture will also be studied under the topics of social setting (city and country), social ranks and effects of each will be explored by the examination of the personalities and attitudes of various characters that belong to different settings, and different social ranks; together referred to as different social texture. While exploring the question, I will try to base my findings on the current social and moral understandings of the setting, and the examples from the novel. In order to support the subject, the question “Can characters change their personalities, which is affected and shaped by the social texture?” will be explored and conclusions about the effect and power of these elements on the development of characters’ personalities will be made.
