Jane Austen's Mrs. Norris ('Mansfield Park'): A Note
There is a famous Mrs. Norris in Mansfield Park - a pretty unpleasant character.
By chance, there was also a contemporary novelist called Mrs. Norris. In the 1790s and 1800s she wrote some very weak novels. These included Julia of England, The Stranger and Euphrasia, or the Captive.
