pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. The family of Dashwood had long been settled in Sussex. Their estate was large, and their residence was at Norland Park, in the centre of their property, where, for many generations, they had lived in so respectable a manner as to engage the general good opinion of their surrounding acquaintance. The late owner of this estate was a single man, who lived to a very advanced age, and who for many years of his life, had a constant companion and housekeeper in his sister. But her death, which happened ten years before his own, produced a great alteration in his home; for to supply her loss, he invited and received into his house the family of his nephew Mr. Henry Dashwood, the legal inheritor of the Norland estate, and the person to whom he intended to bequeath it. In the society of his nephew and niece, and their children, the old Gentleman's days were comfortably spent. His attachment to them . . .

In SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, two sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood (Elinor is a sensible, rational creature, her younger sister Marianne is wildly romantic), along with their mother and younger sister Margaret, are left impoverished after the death of their father. The family is forced to move to a country cottage, offered to them by a generous relative. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY was the first published novel of Jane Austen. Jane Austen (1775-­1817) was a 19th century English novelist, now regarded as one of the most important figures of English literature. Born into a family on the lower end of the English landed gentry, biographical details of Austen's life are scarce. Austen had six brothers—James, George, Charles, Francis, Henry, and Edward—and a beloved older sister, Cassandra. Much of Austen's correspondence was destroyed or heavily censored by her relatives after her death, resulting in a limited picture of her life. Austen produced six novels, two unfinished works, several . . .

Author:

Though not the first novel she wrote, Sense and Sensibility was the first Jane Austen published.
Though she initially called it Elinor and Marianne, Austen jettisoned both the title and the
epistolary mode in which it was originally written, but kept the essential theme: the necessity
of finding a workable middle ground between passion and reason. The story revolves around the Dashwood sisters,
Elinor and Marianne. Whereas the former is a sensible, rational creature,
her younger sister is wildly romantic--­a characteristic that offers Austen plenty of scope for both satire
and compassion. Commenting on Edward Ferrars, a potential suitor for Elinor's hand, Marianne admits
that while she "loves him tenderly,­" she finds him disappointing as a possible lover for her sister:
Oh! Mama, how spiritless, how tame was Edward's manner in reading to us last night! I felt for my sister
most severely. Yet she bore it with so much composure, she seemed scarcely to notice it. I could . . .
