Sense and Sensibility (1811) was the first novel by Jane Austen published under the fictitious name A Lady. It presents the story of two sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, who represent sense and sensibility respectively. A contrast of the two characters is presented: one makes rational and objective decisions, while the other is subject to intense emotions and sentiments. Austen emphasised that a balance between the two extremes is the best approach.

Jane Austen, England's first major female novelist, wrote and set her novels during the Regency period, when George III was too mad, and his son the Prince, who admired Austen's novels, too young to rule the country. Her six novels are best loved for their irony and perfection of form.Jane Austen perfected the English novel of the previous century in much the same way that Henry James perfected the Victorian novel. She never married and died in 1817 at age 41.
