Description
 
‘Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security’. Jane Austen’s sardonic humor lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy & the poignancy inherent in the struggles of two very different sisters to achieve respectability. “Sense & Sensibility” is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor & 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. This book, the first of Austen’s novels to be published, remains as fresh a cautionary tale today as it ever was. Introduction by Stephen Arkin. Complete & unabridged.
