Book Overview
When the Dashwood sisters move into a meagre cottage on a distant relative's property, they are torn between passion and reason. Elinor approaches life in a rational manner, while Marianne is wildly romantic. The story shows how the two sisters must learn from each other as they experience love, romance, and heartbreak. Jane Austen is famous for her six novels, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. Her works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature. Her realism, biting irony and social commentary as well as her acclaimed plots have gained her historical importance among scholars and critics.
