Sense and Sensibility
"Jane Austen can in fact get more drama out of morality than most other
writers can get from shipwreck, battle, murder, or mayhem."
-- Ronald Blythe
Two sisters representing the traits of the title "Marianne, the slave to sensibility and Elinor, a woman of sense" manoeuver their ways through the pitfalls of society and romance.
Sense and Sensibility was not the first novel Jane Austen wrote, but it was the first published after a title and style change.
