Jane Austen s first published work meticulously constructed and sparkling with her unique witMarianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinor s warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo Meanwhile Elinor always sensitive to social convention is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment even from those closest to her Through their parallel experience of love and its threatened loss the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love This edition also includes explanatory notes and textual variants between first and second edition For more than seventy years Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English speaking world With more than 1 700 titles Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors as well as up to date translations by award winning translators
