Sense and Sensibility is a novel by Jane Austen, and was her first published work when it appeared in under the pseudonym "A Lady". A work of romantic.

I require so much! In comes the one who ticks all the boxes: the dashing John Willoughby who is not only gallant enough to carry Marianne back home in the rain after she twists her ankle, but who also shares all of her artistic interests.

Needless to add, that courtship goes pretty well, until John is suddenly forced to leave on a business trip to London. Meanwhile, two newly discovered relatives of Mrs.

After the two get close, Elinor learns from Lucy a seemingly horrible truth: her romantic interest, Edward Ferrars, has been secretly engaged to Lucy for over four years! Talking about seeing the bright side of life, ha?

Jennings go on a trip to London. Marianne can hardly wait to see her beloved Willoughby, to whom, by this time, Elinor and Mrs. Jennings are all but convinced that she is engaged.

However, once she arrives in London, things take a wrong turn for her. After sending him a few unanswered personal letters, Marianne sees Willoughby by chance at a dance, standing with another woman and cruelly ignoring her. The woman turns out to be Miss Grey, a wealthy heiress to whom Willoughby has decided to marry for her money.

Soon after, the Dashwoods see Willoughby again at dinner at Barton Park. Willoughby often visits the Dashwood cottage and spends much time with Marianne.

They share many of the same opinions and tastes in art, music, and literature. Dashwood guesses that they might become engaged. Marianne and Willoughby grow closer and closer, as the Dashwoods continue to attend numerous social events at Barton Park. Margaret sees Marianne give Willoughby a lock of her hair, and assumes that they are engaged.

One evening at Barton Park, Mrs. Jennings asks Elinor if she had any man whom she was fond of, and Margaret lets slip that Elinor is taken by someone whose name began with an F. However, Brandon receives a letter and suddenly has to leave for London, cancelling the planned trip.

Over the next few days, Willoughby continues to behave as though he is in love with Marianne. However, one day Mrs. When they go inside, Marianne is in tears and greatly upset.

Willoughby informs them that he has to leave for London indefinitely on business. Elinor is slightly suspicious of Willoughby, as no one knows for sure whether he and Marianne are actually engaged.

One day, she and Elinor go for a walk outside. Oddly, though, Edward seems ill at ease and unhappy, rather than overjoyed to see Elinor. Marianne notices a ring on his hand with a lock of hair in it. Elinor imagines that he had secretly gotten it from her somehow. After about a week, Edward leaves, without proposing. The Palmers know Willoughby and seem to think that Marianne and he are engaged, though Elinor is not so sure. After the Palmers depart, the Middletons have more guests: Anne and Lucy Steele, two young sisters and relatives of Mrs.

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Elinor and Marianne do not particularly like the Steele sisters, who talk of nothing but their prospective boyfriends and romantic conquests. She explains that she is secretly engaged to Edward, and has been for four years. Because Lucy has no real fortune, they feared that Mrs.

Lucy shows Elinor a letter from Edward and mentions that she had given him a lock of hair, which he keeps in a ring. She wonders whether Edward had intentionally deceived her in encouraging her affections for him.

Soon after this, Elinor takes the opportunity to ask Lucy more about her engagement after a party at Barton Park. Lucy says that she and Edward are in love, but likely will have to wait until Mrs. Ferrars died to marry. As January comes around, Mrs. Jennings invites Elinor and Marianne to stay with her in London. The two sisters leave Margaret and their mother behind at Barton to go stay in London for some time.

Instead, Colonel Brandon often pays visits to the Dashwood sisters. Marianne is anxious about not hearing from Willoughby, and unable to enjoy the social events they attend in the city.

Elinor writes to her mother, begging her to ask Marianne clearly whether she is engaged to Willoughby or not. Willoughby is cold to Marianne and mostly ignores her. Marianne has to leave the party immediately, in despair. Elinor learns that Marianne and Willoughby were never formally engaged, and that Willoughby only ever implied his love for her. Jennings tries to cheer Marianne up, predicting that she will now marry Colonel Brandon.

Having heard about the unfortunate news with Willoughby, Colonel Brandon pays a visit to Elinor one day, and passes along some news that he thinks might help Marianne.

In order to explain, he has to tell Marianne about a woman named Eliza, whom he had been in love with a long time ago. Brandon and Eliza tried to elope, but were caught.

Her tastes and desires as we have come to know them are suppressed. Every film adaptation dresses her experience of love in customary signs of a turn toward autonomously realized feeling and will, and repackages her second attachment to Colonel Brandon at least as symbolically coherent.

In the recent BBC adaptation by famed Austen screen writer Andrew Davies, through some semi- ludicrous wild horse references and falconry scenes Brandon tames Sense and Sensibility and Suffering Marianne by giving her room, by facilitating her reading and practice time at the piano.

The dull, weighty domesticity of the image makes it appropriate that representation of Marianne comes to a halt with just the gnomic pot alone, with all its manifestations of inner motion and expressive escape left to be conjured.

Introducing a hole in that pure immanence—and productive of endless layers into which to fold desire—is the inevitable projection we tend to make of people and characters alike, of their having their own life of sensations, as distinct from being them.

The way Elinor bursts into tears when she learns Edward is not engaged also gives a strong effect, since it is the first time she exposes herself openly, and it is rather unusual for a lady to lose the absolute control over her feelings.
