Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Though not the first novel she wrote, Sense and Sensibility was the first Jane Austen published. Though she initially called it Elinor and Marianne, Austen jettisoned both the title and the epistolary mode in which it was originally written, but kept the essential theme: the necessity of finding a workable middle ground between passion and reason. The story revolves around the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne. Whereas the former is a sensible, rational creature, her younger sister is wildly romantic--a characteristic that offers Austen plenty of scope for both satire and compassion. Commenting on Edward Ferrars, a potential suitor for Elinor's hand, Marianne admits that while she "loves him tenderly," she finds him disappointing as a possible lover for her sister:
Oh! Mama, how spiritless, how tame was Edward's manner in reading to us last night! I felt for my sister most severely. Yet she bore it with so much composure, she seemed scarcely to notice it. I could hardly keep my seat. To hear those beautiful lines which have frequently almost driven me wild, pronounced with such impenetrable calmness, such dreadful indifference!
Soon however, Marianne meets a man who measures up to her ideal: Mr. Willoughby, a new neighbor. So swept away by passion is Marianne that her behavior begins to border on the scandalous. Then Willoughby abandons her; meanwhile, Elinor's growing affection for Edward suffers a check when he admits he is secretly engaged to a childhood sweetheart. How each of the sisters reacts to their romantic misfortunes, and the lessons they draw before coming finally to the requisite happy ending forms the heart of the novel. Though Marianne's disregard for social conventions and willingness to consider the world well-lost for love may appeal to modern readers, it is Elinor whom Austen herself most evidently admired; a truly happy marriage, she shows us, exists only where sense and sensibility meet and mix in proper measure. --Alix Wilber

Amazon.co.uk

Two sisters of opposing temperaments but who share the pangs of tragic love provide the subjects for Sense and Sensibility. Elinor, practical and conventional, is the epitome of sense; Marianne, emotional and sentimental, the embodiment of sensibility. To each comes the sorrow of unhappy love: Elinor desires a man who is promised to another while Marianne loses her heart to a scoundrel who jilts her. 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. Now an award-winning movie written by Emma Thompson.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amiable book 22. August 2007
Von Blaumaintal TOP 1000 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Jane Austen is a wonderful author. This her first novel is about development and enlargement of the main characters, the reader is invited to censure with them their acquaintances: What acquaintances are valuable and to be trusted which are deceitful and false? And will the two heroines get the right man for marriage in the end? Is their love true and are they truly loved? And actually the most splendid characters do not prove themselves as being the steadiest in virtue, who wins the prize is the awkward, the inconspicuous, the man who proves himself ever and ever again as being affectionate and reliable. These are general motives of all her novels, and on the whole its ending is, as always, the ending of a fairy tale. I like her humour, her descriptions of the characters and situations, her simple plot, which is wonderfully enlarged by psychological depth. So it's very entertaining, although there is quite a distant to perceive to our time, for these customs and morals are fading away and partly are already gone. What remains is the people's search for reliable, amiable surroundings, for some reliable friends around. How can it be achieved? The main characters of Austen's novels achieve it by their integrity through all sorrows and all the fecklessness of others. Nevertheless I think "Pride and Prejudice" and "Emma" better books of Mrs. Austen. But be it as it be, I with great pleasure recommend "Sense and Sensibility" as an amiable book ' and this with the whole of my heart.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Jane Austen's First Look at English Society 2. Februar 2007
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Most people who have read Jane Austen will have read Pride and Prejudice. With a title like Sense and Sensibility, most readers will assume that the two books can be interpreted and enjoyed in the same way. Other than having three word titles that employ alliteration in the first and third words, the two novels are more different than similar.

While Pride and Prejudice is primarily about miscommunication, Sense and Sensibility is about the maturation of two sisters as they find themselves confronted by adversity. The former topic allows Ms. Austen more room to roam, but within the later topic she has plenty of opportunities to display her story telling and comic talents. While maturation is an important sub theme in Pride and Prejudice, you see maturation better developed in Sense and Sensibility.

When their father dies, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret find themselves in exile from their family home with their mother. The family estate had been left to their half brother whom their father exhorted to take care of them. But that promise is soon diluted into doing almost nothing through the selfishness of his wife and his vacillation. A relative kindly offers them a country cottage near his home and takes obvious pleasure in their company.

At this modest new home, Elinor found herself entertaining the welcome attentions of Edward Ferrars. Elinor's younger sister, Marianne, is all aflutter over John Willoughby who seems to be committed to her. In fact, everyone assumes that there will soon be wedding bells for Marianne and Willoughby.

All of these pleasant connections are, however, soon disrupted. Willoughby leaves and ignores Marianne. Elinor finds out an unexpected secret about Ferrars that puts her on her caution in pursuing their relationship.
