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 i 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 wiserThe 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.
