    I love Jane Austen I LOVE Jane Austen I LOVE JANE AUSTEN I LOVE JANE AUSTEN I LOVE..JANE. AUSTEN I still twitch a bit, but I m getting and man comfortable saying that because there no denying that it s true Normally, I am not much of a soapy, chick flick, mani pedi kinda guy I don t spritz my wine, rarely eat quiche and have never had anything waxed though the list of things that need it grows by the hour But I would walk across a desert in bloomers and a parasol to read Ms Austen Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books and Sense and Sensibility is certainly up among the elite Jane can absolutely bust me when she starts penning that snappy prose laced with all those sly, subtle, sarcastic phrases She s like prim and proper meets saucy and bossy I find it interesting that the descriptions of her books never seem very appealing to me before I begin them I would direct your attention to the non chick flick portion of my I m a Man Intro above For example, Sense and Sensibility is the story of two sisters, one emotionally reserved to put it mildly and proper and the other emotionally volatile and prone to disregard convention, as they struggle with...

    Money It s all about the money I mean, why else would you marry someone In Sense and Sensibility there are three major factors beyond the usual considerations of appearance, personality and character conduct when looking for a marriage in 19th century England Indeed, what the Dashwood sisters look for well Elinor really because she has refined tastes and is far discerning in regards to men is a man s opinion on literature and his understanding of natural beauty What most people look for is far removed from the realms of sentiment they just look for money The Dashwood sisters are wiser The I know of the world, the I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love I require so much ..If I could but know his heart, everything would become easy And this is the problem with society, attaining money and keeping it, unfortunately, becomes the main signifier for someone s worth Austen, as per usual, is razor sharp with her wit here There are so many ironic moments involving fortune hunters and extremely greedy and selfish relatives who only appear when they think there s something to gain from their supposed loved ones Everybody is so obsessed with money, so than I ve seen in a any other Austen She always satirises the elites, though here most of them seem to seek...

    Jane Austen s first published work, Sense and Sensibility, published in 1811, is straightforward than most of her later works The story focuses on two sisters, ages 17 and 19, and how their romantic interests and relationships epitomize their different approaches to life The older sister Elinor embodies sense, good judgment and discretion.Her sister Marianne is emotional and volatile, following her heart with a supreme disregard for what society might and does think.Elinor is pretty much always right.Marianne s parade gets rained on, in ways than one.Although at most points in this novel Austen seems to be saying very clearly that Elinor s approach of being sensible is superior to Marianne s sensibility, every once in a while the story suggests that maybe being sensible all the time isn t the best idea, and there needs to be some balance between the two extremes view spoiler For example, if Edward hadn t been reasonably certain that Elinor wasn t in love with him, he p...

    RE READ January 30, 2019 Do you ever notice how Colonel Brandon is a man, who steps up and takes care of things like a man Edward is kind of useless, I think Marianne got the real prize here.Also fascinating just how much Austen is saying in this novel She s saying A LOT and and becomes clear to me on every re read The scene where Willoughby shows up to confess to Elinor when Marianne is ill was particularly striking to me this time What does this say about bad people and the nature of their bad acts How does Elinor respond It s also really fascinating what Austen is saying about Marianne in this book How illness and heartbreak change her and reshape her into a stronger, less selfish person But at the same time, Austen does not condemn Marianne for her strong feelings and her runaway heart in the first 2 3 of the book In fact, it is esteemed a bit And is Marianne really selfish That could be debated six ways to Sunday The book is very complex There is a lot to think about.RE READ September 6, 2015This is one of my all time favorite books I like it even than I do Pride and Prejudice.Everyone goes crazy over Lizzie Bennett and idolizes her, but my role model will always ...

    reread 01.29.18 added another star this time roundMy penultimate Jane Austen novel nooooooo For me, it took too long to get going Not until they arrived in London that I started to get curious about how the story will unfold and what will happen to the Dashwood sisters Elinor, I liked well enough but I found Marianne to be too self righteous and annoying She did turn a new leaf in the end but I think it came too late for me to start liking her at that point Owning to the fact that because of HER, I had to deal with a selfish man ...
