Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen's first published novel (1811), introduced its readers to many of the themes which would dominate Austen's future work.

On one level it is a simple story of two sisters finding fulfilment within a society bounded by regulations and restrictions.

But on another it is a comprehensive exploration of the moral dilemmas facing young women in the choices they have to make about their lives.

Austen writes about everyday events of her own time with a subtlety and sensitivity unprecedented in the English novel.

This edition takes as its copytext the second edition of 1813, which corrects some errors of the first edition.

The volume provides comprehensive explanatory notes, an extensive critical introduction covering the context and publication history of the work, a chronology of Austen's life, and an authoritative textual apparatus.

This edition is an indispensable resource for all scholars and readers of Austen.
