After reading ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Revisions from previous post

I am so relieved that I complete reading ‘Sense and Sensibility’ because  I am freed from reading such hard novel despite simple stories in it. I write about why the novel is a difficult reading material in previous post.

I don’t actually completely understand the whole plots because of the language but somehow I manage finish reading it. So I’m happy that I fulfill my own promise. Because of the writing technique which is much harder than in ‘Emma’, I don’t really enjoy reading ‘Sense and Sensibility’. But I do salute that the title emphasizes much on sisterhood rather than romance itself.

I, too, appreciate Jane Austen who brings up social and marital conditions at the time the book is created so that readers can clearly comprehend why money and wealth play very important roles in marriage. The case of Willoughby proves this fact.

Anyway.. I would like to correct what I post previously because I don’t yet finish reading the novel.

First of all, Elinor Dashwood is married to Edward Ferrras, which surprises me somehow. It turns out Lucy has an affair with Edward’s brother, Robert. Then, Marianne Dashwood becomes the wife of Colonel Brandon though their wedding doesn’t take immediately after Elinor and Edward’s.

It’s a tale eventually ends happily for all protagonists, and almost all figures in it. Another relief for me after going through such a complicated writing style. Thank you, Jane Austen!
