Sense and Sensibility
Jane Austen (au); Stephen Arkin (in)
‘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.
