Publisher's Summary

Mrs. Henry Dashwood's husband is dead - and although the elder Mr. Dashwood requested his son John to care for his stepmother and half-sisters, the selfish John dispossesses them of the estate. Consequently, Mrs. Henry Dashwood and her girls retire to a cottage in Devonshire, but not before Elinor and Edward Ferrers (Mrs. John Dashwood's brother) have formed a mutual attraction for each other. In Devonshire, Marianne falls in love with the attractive and unprincipled John Willoughby, who appears to return her love but departs suddenly - and informs her by means of an unfeeling and rude letter of his approaching nuptials to a wealthy heiress. Marianne makes not the slightest effort to conceal her grief and distress, while Elinor hides her own grief when she receives (in strictest confidence) the intelligence that Edward is secretly engaged to the niece of his former tutor. The 2 of them do find happiness ultimately, but the progress is full of obstacles and surprises in Jane Austen's first novel.

    What made the experience of listening to Sense and Sensibility the most enjoyable?

    I have trouble with some of the pronounciations of the English words from that period. This narrorator flows through very well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sense and Sensibility?

    Learning about which Mr. Farrars got married.


    Have you listened to any of Julie Christie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    When Marianne is ill, on the verge of death.

    no
