Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Great novel, very helpfully annotated

Modern readers don't need as much help with Jane Austen as they do with Milton or Shakespeare. Nevertheless I found the annotations in this edition greatly enriched my experience of the novel. The edition was well worth the small extra price.

The novel itself can't be too highly recommended. The characters are diverse, clearly drawn, and their story is compelling. Read, enjoy, and learn!
