Description

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.

The author

Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, at age forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously.

Christina Bartolomeo is the author of three novels: Cupid and Diana; The Side of the Angels; and Snowed In.
