Sense and Sensibility (подарочное издание)
Коротко о книге Sense and Sensibility (подарочное издание). Книга в суперобложке с трехсторонним золотым обрезом и с ляссе. Sense and Sensibility, the first of Jane Austens major novels, is a portrait of two very different sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. Ranged against them are the forces of a society where men and masculinity predominate; Elinor and Marianne have to balance their emotional needs against the harsh financial realities of the world at large. Великолепное подарочное издание. Elinor is practical and disciplined, Marianne capricious and emotional, yet they share a troubled and impoverished family background, and both must struggle to achieve the happiness they deserve. Sense and Sensibility is a chronicle of romantic misfortunes, narrated with irony and a sharp eye for hypocrisy. A powerful drama of family life and growing up, the novel is at once a subtle comedy of manners and a striking critique of early-nineteenth-century society.
