Sense and Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility

Jane Austen

With Sense personified by Elinor and Sensibility by her younger sister Marianne, the contrast between Classicism and Romanticism in the artistic realm is explored.

The two sisters, along with a brother and another younger sister, must leave the family estate with their recently widowed mother after the inheritance is passed to a son from another relationship.

The novel was first released during the classical period as the cultural enlightment raged, and was initially publshed anonymously.
