“To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect.”
Jane Austen's first published novel, Sense and Sensibility, is an entertaining tale of flirtation and folly that revolves around two starkly different sisters, Elinor and Marianne.
While Elinor is thoughtful, considerate and calm, her younger sister is emotional and wildly romantic. Both are looking for a husband, but neither Elinor's reason nor Marianne's passion can lead them to perfect happiness. Startling secrets, unexpected twists, and heartless betrayals interrupt the marriage games that follow.Filled with satiric wit and subtle characterizations, Sense and Sensibility teaches that true love requires a balance of both reason and emotion.
