Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the editor of the popular Annotated Pride and Prejudice comes an annotated edition of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility that makes this tale of two sisters in love an even more enjoyable read. Here is the complete text of the novel with more than 2,000 annotations on facing pages, including:

-Explanations of historical context

-Citations from Austen’s life, letters, and other writings

-Definitions and clarifications

-Literary comments and analysis

-Multiple maps of England and London

-An introduction, bibliography, and detailed chronology of events

-More than 100 informative illustrations

Filled with fascinating information about everything from the rules of inheritance that could leave a wealthy man’s daughters almost penniless to the fashionable cult of sensibility that Austen so brilliantly satirizes, David M. Shapard’s Annotated Sense and Sensibility is an entertaining and edifying delight.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
