In early September, Mrs. Dashwood, Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret journey to Barton Cottage, their new home. They are welcomed by Sir John Middleton, who is their landlord and Mrs. Dashwood's cousin. Sir John is a friendly, generous man of about forty, but his wife, Lady Middleton, is more cold and reserved. The Middletons live with four. About Sense and Sensibility. In its marvelously perceptive portrayal of two young women in love, Sense and Sensibility is the answer to those who believe that Jane Austen’s novels, despite their perfection of form and tone, lack strong feeling. Its two heroines, Marianne and Elinor—so utterly unlike each other–both undergo the most violent passions when they are separated from the men.

  The book tells the story of the sisters Elinor and Marianne. Elinor is very sensible and is always advising her sister Marianne that she is a very romantic and impulsive person. This passage shows the moment when Marianne goes to a party and meets Willoughby, a man who made several swearings of love to Marianne and got the girl's heart. A sequel to Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, this is the correspondence between the married Dashwood sisters - Mrs Brandon and Mrs Edward Ferrars. Passion, in the shape of the charming seducer Willoughby, makes an appearance, together with perennial themes of money and social embarrassment.

  Elinor is the elder sister-logical, sensible, and in command of herself. Marianne is the middle daughter-passionate, outspoken, and emotional. Elinor falls for a man, but finds him promised to another. Marianne meets a man right out of her romantic dreams, but is he all that he seems to be? Marianne is almost the exact opposite of Elinor in every way. Where Elinor listens to her head, Marianne listens to her heart. Marianne is often spontaneous, discloses her emotions to everyone, and studies a situation subjectively. Unlike Elinor's almost stoic exterior, Marianne is often seen laughing or crying.
