This Jane Austen novel tells the story of the Dashwood sisters: cautious, level-headed Elinor and the impulsive, lively Marianne. A satire of the romantic novel, a popular genre in eighteenth-century Britain, this timeless story is a study of love and marriage through the eyes of two very different heroines, one representing sense, or logic, and the other presenting sensibility, or emotionalism.

Author Bio: Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
