Product Description

One sister filled with sense, the other with sensibility; Marianne Dashwood has fallen headlong into love with the dashing rake Sir John Willoughby, ignoring Elinor's warnings about her impulsive behaviour. Elinor meanwhile, strives to conceal her romantic disappointments from those around her, leaving her alone in her struggles. Jane Austen's classic tale of romantic society-and the need for a balanced outlook-is just as relevant and charming today as when she first wrote it. 407 pages, softcover, with appendix.

Publisher's Description

Sense and Sensibility is Jane Austen's first published work, meticulously constructed and sparkling with her unique wit. This Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction by Ros Ballaster, University of Oxford Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile Elinor, always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Through their parallel experience of love - and its threatened loss - the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love. This edition also includes explanatory notes and textual variants between first and second edition. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, Pride and Prejudice, at the age of 22. She was the author of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey.
