Book Report of Sense and Sensibility

Elinor and Marianne, two daughters of Mr. Dashwood by his second wife. They have a younger sister, Margaret, and an older brother named John. When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances. The novel follows the Dashwood sisters to their new home, a cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience both romance and heartbreak. I think the author eventually admired of the heroine Ellinor, because she was both with heavy sentiment and sensibility. Here the author put on his ideal about the issue between sense and sensibility, is that the person can't be without feeling, but feelings should be restricted by sense. Ellinor was a emotional and calm young girl. When she was choosing a male, not just focus on the appearance or economy ,but mostly on the speaking and good character, so she fell in love with the frankly Edward. Later, she found Edward had engagement with Lucy, though she was very sad, but she tried to restrain the sadness and went to social intercourse and dinner party as usual. Finally, Edward was abandoned by his mother and Lucy. However , Ellinor still love him , they get married and get real love in the end.

Different with Ellinor , her sister Marianne ,though she was clever, but too

emotional, was always holding rich romantic and colorful fantasy, insisted to marry a outstanding and charming Mr. Right. Thirty-five years old colonel, Brandon showed her his affection, she thought he was too old, thus she refused him. Then she

accidentally met a charming male, Werombi, and soon was madly in love with him. Unfortunately, she was abandoned soon which almost broke her heart, she lost her love and her life , what’s worse, she nearly killed herself. After a time , she learned from her sister Ellinor, she finally become sensible, and finally married Brandon who always loved her.

After reading this novel , here comes a truth that people can't be too emotional, emotional feelings should be restricted by sense. The two sisters , for the same destination, love, which must contain sense and sensibility, they did not have a very clear opinion about that at first, however, after the long way they have come through, they came to know the point, and they have their true love finally. Obviously, the author explains such an idea from the very beginning till the end.
