Summary, etc.:
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.
