Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sense and Sensibility (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.

Nach dem Tod ihres Vaters, dessen Onkel Mr. Dashwoods Sohn Henry aus erster Ehe als Erbe von Norland bestimmte, sind Mrs. Dashwood und ihre drei Töchter Elinor (19), Marianne (17) und Margret (13) gezwungen, das Landgut, das bisher ihr Zuhause war, zu verlassen und sich eine bescheidenere Unterkunft zu suchen. Sir John Middleton, ein Cousin von Mrs. Dashwood, bietet ihr ein kleines Haus, Barton Cottage, auf seinem Grund und Boden an und so zieht die Familie nach Barton.
Während Elinor auf Norland ihre Liebe Edward Ferrars, zurücklassen musste, begegnet Marianne schon bald nach ihrem Umzug dem gutaussehenden Mr. Willoughby. Die Irrungen und Wirrungen der Liebe nehmen schon bald ihren tränenreichen Lauf.

"Sense and Sensibility" ist Janes Austens erster veröffentlichter Roman, der 1811 zunächst anonym erschien. Der Roman spielt um 1792-1797 und sie schrieb diese Geschichte bereits als Teenager, was man an einigen Stellen leider wirklich merkt, anders kann ich mir derartige Stellen wirklich nicht erklären:

"A woman of seven and twenty," said Marianne, after pausing a moment, "can never hope to feel or inspire affection again, and if her home be uncomfortable, or her fortune small, I can suppose that she might bring herself to submit to the offices of a nurse, for the sake of the provision and security of a wife. In his marrying such a woman therefore there would be nothing unsuitable. It would be a compact of convenience, and the world would be satisfied.

Einige der Episoden in diesem Roman, findet man so oder ähnlich in "Pride and Prejudice" wieder, man kann sagen, Austen hat sich selber plagiiert, nur ist "Pride and Prejudice" deutlich reifer, mit spannenderen Charakteren als "Sense and Sensibility". Die Geschichte mag realistischer sein, aber sie ist auch deutlich weniger unterhaltsam und viele der Personen sind einfach nur farblos. Die männlichen Helden sind sogar explizit als "colourless Edward Ferrars and the stiff-jointed Colonel Brandon ([...] whom every body speaks well of, and nobody cares about; whom all are delighted to see, and nobody remembers to talk to.['] as a very respectable man, who has every body's good word, and nobody's notice.)" beschrieben.
Sicherlich, an einigen Stellen blitzt bereits die bekannte spitze Feder der Autorin durch wie in dem Gespräch zwischen Elinor und Mrs. Jennings, an dem sie so wunderbar aneinander vorbei reden oder in solchen Charakterisierungen:

"There was a kind of cold hearted selfishness on both sides, which mutually attracted them; and they sympathised with each other in an insipid propriety of demeanor, and a general want of understanding."

Diese sind aber dünn gesät. Insgesamt schleppt sich dieser etwas seichte, vorhersehbare Gesellschaftsroman streckenweise sehr zäh und erinnert stark an Fontanes Stechlin, nur stirbt hier kein Alte rund 4 - 6 Junge heiraten sich. Insgesamt wirkt der Roman, besonders gegen Ende, arg konstruiert und man merkt an den ausführlichen Erklärungen, wie es zu dieser Konstellation kommen konnte, dass der Autorin das durchaus bewusst war.
Kein Meisterwerk der Autorin, nicht sonderlich zeitlos und wohl nur so bekannt, weil das Buch eben zum Gesamtwerk gehört.

Das Buch ist mittlerweile gemeinfrei und kann als ebook von den Gutenbergprojekten heruntergeladen werden.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Jane Austen's First Look at English Society, 2. Februar 2007

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. As these complications develop, Marianne soon finds herself distraught despite having attracted another suitor, the reliable, but older, Colonel Brandon. Elinor steps into the breach to try to help her sister regain her equilibrium. Both learn what a broken heart can feel like and adjust in their own separate ways.

In vintage Jane Austen style, all bets are off near the end of the book as characters take unexpected steps that open up new possibilities. There's no one quite like Jane Austen for pulling great twists in her romantic comedies. These twists will cause your jaw to drop.

Try not to compare this book to Pride and Prejudice. It's clearly a lesser work, but one that can certainly be enjoyed in its own right.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good... but not great..., 13. Juli 2000
Von 
Clydezilla (San Diego, CA United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Personally, I think that Sense and Senibility was a good book, but lacks the wit that was constantly present in Pride and Predjudice.
While there was conflict in Sense and Sensibility (both in the sister's jealousy and the the scorn from their lovers later), Austen didn't allow her characters to really address the conflict directly. (For example, why didn't Willoughby explain himself to Marianne, as opposed to using Elinor as a go-between?)
While this may be the subtle temper which reflects Austen's style, it also makes it more difficult for the reader to discern any true sense of feeling.
The plot is "okay" - boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy scorns girl. In Sense and Sensibility, it's done twice, in parallel. The only difference between one and the other is how each girl copes with it. But, from reading several of Austen's books, I've found that plot development wasn't the author's strong suit.
Jane Austen's real strength lies in character development. Her major characters are well developed and dynamic. An interesting aspect of Sense and Sensibility is how Elinor, the logical and practical sister became more emotional, while the ever-feeling Marianne developed a more practical view of her situation by the end of the book.
This isn't one I would recommend for folks that have never read Jane Austen before (read Pride and Predjudice first), but it is a book I would recommend it to anybody who likes Jane Austen's style.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Opposite Extremes, 20. Juni 2000
Von 
In what used to be Jane Austen's epistilary novel, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood struggle with their extreme, and conflicting, personalities in a male-dominated society where they must come to terms with the death of their father, their subsequent near-impoverished state, and disappointments of the heart.
This is the second Austen novel I have read and I must confess to being charmed by the bond between the sisters despite their utter lack of understanding when it came to each other. Both Elinor and Marianne love each other and try to understand one another. Elinor tries to protect Marianne by attempting to counsel her to curb her sensibility while Marianne advocates her own romantic outlook to her older sister. What each of them fails to realize, until the novel's end, is that without the presence of the other in times of trouble, they would not have a leg to stand on.
Both Elinor and Marianne take each other for granted and it is to the reader's gratification that Elinor and Marianne do find satisfactory, and happy, endings when they each adopt a little of the other's philosophical outlook.

3.0 von 5 Sternen She's done better..., 28. März 1998
I don't see why this book is rated so high among readers. I would say it's average at best. I read both Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice in the last week. If you have time for only one of them, read Pride and Prejudice, it's much better. In Sense and Sensibility it doesn't seem like you get to know the characters as well as in Pride. The novel seems to drag along for way to long before anything happens in the last few pages. I know the novel has a lot to do with people trying to marry rich, but the focus on money seems to be more prevalent in Sense than in Pride. It's a decent book, but there are others I would rather pick up.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lush, yet cheapened by the ending., 25. Januar 2000
I have had the pleasure now of having read a great deal of Austen's works. She had a knack for depicting human nature in a very skillful and entertaining manner. My one regret in my reading of Austen is that I started with this book. This book is skillfully written, with lush language. My problem is that the ending is so surreal and sudden. I do recommend this book; but not for beginners. If you are only starting with Austen, read Persuasion or Emma first.
