Sense and Sensibility

Series: Wordsworth Classics

by Jane Austen , By (author) Stephen Arkin

Category: Fiction / General
Publisher: Wordsworth Editions Ltd
Publication date: 5 May 1992
Number of pages: 272

Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security'. Jane Austen's sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability. Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor's character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her passionate nature in the interests of survival.

What the papers say:
" As nearly flawless as any fiction could be."
- Eudora Welty
