Released by Thomas Egerton in 1811, Sense and Sensibility was Austen’s first published novel, written in its initial draft as many as thirteen or fourteen years previously. The essential plot... More > concerns the varying love interests of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne disadvantaged by a vindictive disinheritance after the death of their father. In particular, should Marianne marry the gentlemanly Colonel Brandon or the dashing John Willoughby.

More > far more to this story of two daughters made homeless by the death of their father. Elinor, 19, and Marianne, 17, initially project the opposing roles with Elinor cautious and unassuming about romantic matters, while Marianne is wild and passionate when she falls hopelessly in love with the libertine Mr. Willoughby.
