by Jane Austen

Sense and Sensibility is a novel by Jane Austen published in 1811, the first of Austen's novels to be published. He published it under the pseudonym "A Lady".

The novel follows the three Dashwood sisters as they must move with their widowed mother from the estate on which they grew up, Norland Park.

Because Norland is passed down to John, the product of Mr. Dashwood's first marriage, and his young son, the four Dashwood women need to look for a new home.

They have the opportunity to rent a modest home, Barton Cottage, on the property of a distant relative, Sir John Middleton.

In this book appear quite clearly the vulgarity and ambition of the Napoleonic era. It reflects how the Enlightenment destroyed any structure of medieval faith and science inspired a new form of philosophy that emphasized the search for earthly pleasures. In addition, the novel also shows the initial moments of 19th century Romanticism.

It has been adapted for film and television numerous times, with the best-known adaptation being Ang Lee's 1995 version.
