´Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security´. Jane Austen´s sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability.
 
Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor´s character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her passionate nature in the interests of survival.
 
This book, the first of Austen´s novels to be published, remains as fresh a cautionary tale today as it ever was.
