Two sisters of opposing temperaments who share the pangs of tragic love provide the theme for Jane Austen's dramatically human narrative. Elinor, practical and conventional, is the perfection of sense.

Marianne, emotional and sentimental, is the embodiment of sensibility.

To each comes the sorrow of unhappy love. Their mutual suffering brings a closer understanding between the two sisters--and true love finally triumphs when sense gives way to sensibility and sensibility gives way to sense.

Jane Austen's authentic representation of early-nineteenth-century middle-class provincial life, written with forceful insight and gentle irony, makes her novels the enduring works on the mores and manners of her time.

With an Introduction by Margaret Drabbleand an Afterword by Mary Balogh
