Marianne 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 includes explanatory notes, textual variants between the
first and second editions, and Tony Tanner's introduction to the original
Penguin Classic edition.
