Traduzione di Daniela Paladini

Trasformare la tranquilla cittadina di Sanditon in una stazione balneare alla moda: è questo il sogno di Mr Parker, imprenditore entusiasta e determinato.
Charlotte, figlia di un proprietario terriero della zona, è l’eroina di questo romanzo: è tentata dall’idea di Mr Parker ma al tempo stesso comprende le ragioni del padre, restio al grande cambiamento. Sidney Parker è invece il personaggio maschile positivo, interessato al nuovo ma senza l’eccesso caricaturale del fratello. Sarà lui l’uomo giusto per Charlotte?
Il manoscritto di Sanditon fu abbandonato da Jane Austen il 18 marzo 1817, esattamente quattro mesi prima della morte. Era già malata da un anno, ma questo testo non reca tracce di dolore o pessimismo e, sebbene incompiuto, è un chiaro frutto del genio comico che da sempre attraversa la sua vena narrativa.

Gevoel en verstand is de eerste, in 1795 geschreven en in 1811 uitgegeven, roman van de Engelse schrijfster Jane Austen. In het boek beschrijft Austen een milieu (Engelse landadel) waarin niet alleen vrouwen, maar ook mannen het slachtoffer kunnen zijn van regels over familiebanden, eigendommen en het huwelijk. De titel verwijst naar de verschillende wijze waarop de hoofdpersonages tegen hun situatie aankijken: Elinor Dashwood baseert zich op gezond verstand en haar jongere zus Marianne gaat in eerste instantie meer uit van haar gevoel.

Mr. en Mrs. Dashwood wonen met hun drie dochters, Elinor, Marianne en Margaret, op hun landgoed, Norland Park. Als Mr. Dashwood komt te overlijden laat hij alles aan zijn zoon John Dashwood - van zijn eerste vrouw - na. John Dashwood belooft zijn vader dat hij goed voor zijn stiefmoeder en zijn drie halfzusjes zal zorgen, maar zijn vrouw, Fanny Dashwood, weet hem daarvan af te houden.

De weduwe Dashwood en haar drie dochters moeten dus . . .
