Enjoy the romance and wit of the charming Dashwood sisters in Jane Austen's classic tale Sense and Sensibility.
Jane Austen's debut novel, Sense and Sensibility has been resonating with readers since it was first published in 1811 and has been made into a number of adaptations.
The Dashwood sisters couldn't be more different. While Elinor lives her life in a reasonable manner, Marianne tends to make decisions following her heart. But when it comes to finding a husband, the sisters realize, through much trial and error, that a combination of their personalities is ideal when it comes to finding true happiness. Beyond the romance, Sense and Sensibility is chock-full of humor and wit that is also a commentary on British middle-class society at the turn of the nineteenth century.
Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue, and realism support character development and make Sense and Sensibility a pure pleasure to read. Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Christina Bartolomeo.
