Description
Though not the first novel she wrote, "sense and Sensibility was the first Jane Austen published. Austen pursues a central theme; the necessity of finding a workable middle ground between passion and reason. The story revolves around the Dashwood sisters, Elinor, a sensible, rational creature, and Marianne wildly romantic--characteristics that offer Austen plenty of scope for both satire and compassion. How each of the sisters reacts to their romantic adventures and misfortunes, and the lessons they draw before coming finally to the requisite happy ending, forms the heart of the novel. Though Marianne's disregard for social conventions and willingness to consider the world well-lost for love may appeal to modern readers, it is Elinor whom Austen herself most evidently admired; a truly happy marriage, she shows us, exists only where sense and sensibility meet and mix in proper measure. "Sense and Sensibility is introduced by Professor HM Daleski.

Description
"Sense and Sensibility" is a wonderfully entertaining tale of flirtation and folly that revolves around two starkly different sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. While Elinor is thoughtful, considerate, and calm, her younger sister is emotional and wildly romantic. Both are looking for a husband, but neither Elinor.
