Sep 22,  · No Austen story can tempt me more than Pride and Prejudice, but I do consider Sense and Sensibility to be something of a clumsier precursor to that beloved book. Austen ambitiously balances humor, sincerity of affection, meditative reasoning, and even a testosterone-fueled midnight scene between a selfish lover and the book's protagonist, Elinor/5(K).

Jan 10,  · Sense and Sensibility, a novel by Jane Austen that was published anonymously in three volumes in and that became a classic.

Dec 26,  · Sense and Sensibility is a richly rewarding story of manners from one of the world's greatest novelists. Full of feeling, humor, and beautifully realized characters, this book is treasured by teens and adults who enjoy a complex romantic page-turner.5/5.

Dec 13,  · The acting is superb, Kate Winslet as the typical Romantic dreamer (sensibility) is breathtaking (try not to be moved when her character wanders in the rain to see the house of her beloved and when she whispers half-deranged: 'Willoughby, Willoughby, Willoughby.') is perfect as is Emma Thompson as the rational but equally tormented older sister /10(96K).

Re-reading Sense and Sensibility - plot and characterisation. I’ve just finished Sense and Sensibility. It is a very fine novel and if Jane Austen hadn’t written five other novels it would be her finest. It is a highly ingenious plot, probably the most elaborate she wrote.

Sense and Sensibility was Jane Austen's first published work when it appeared in Sense and Sensibility. Dashwood’s situation, with only common feelings, must have been highly unpleasing;— but in HER mind there was a sense of honor so keen, a generosity so romantic, that any offence of the kind, by whomsoever given or received, was to her a source of immoveable disgust.

Mrs. They are the sense and sensibility expressed in the title. Elinor, the “Sense”, shows reason, restraint, and social responsibility. She also keeps a clear head for the concern of the welfare of others.

Marianne, the “Sensibility”, shows emotion, spontaneity, and impulsiveness. She is 4/5(81). I just finished the second book I only completed because I hate to leave a novel unfinished. Suspense and Sensibility is the second in a series of Mr.

and Mrs. Darcy Mystery novels by Carrie Bebris and while I am sure Mrs. Bebris has the upmost respect for the Darcy’s, I can’t say I /5. Aug 01,  · Sense and Sensibility was the first book I was forced to read as a young person. At the time, I hated it.

I could not understand what people saw in Jane Austen. I read twenty-two chapters before I quit, and to my mind at the time, NOTHING happened.

There were no murders, no life-altering circumstances, nothing dramatic/5. Jul 01,  · Sense and Sensibility is an excellent book. When I started it I really did not know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised.

I will say though that this book is hard to get through at times, due to the old language used. But if you stay with the book, it will be worth it/5(5).

As the title suggests, Sense and Sensibility is, in some ways, a debate about the principles of rationalism, represented by Elinor Dashwood, and those of Romanticism, represented by her sister Marianne.

Few Austen heroines are set up so approvingly as Elinor is. Yet novelist David Gates has described her as "ambivalent a heroine as Mansfield Park's notoriously hard-to-warm-up-to Fanny Price.".

Sense and Sensibility Chapter 1 T he family of Dashwood had long been settled in Sussex. Their estate was large, and their residence was at Nor-land Park, in the centre of their property, where, for many.
