    I love Jane Austen I LOVE Jane Austen I LOVE JANE AUSTEN ILOVEJANEAUSTENILOVEJANEAUSTENI still twitch a bit but I'm getting and man comfortable saying that because there no denying that it’s true Normally I am not much of a soapy chick flick mani pedi kinda guy I don’t spritz my wine rarely eat uiche and have never had anything waxed though the list of things that need it grows by the hour But I would walk across a desert in bloomers and a parasol to read Ms Austen Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books and Sense and Sensibility is certainly up among the elite Jane can absolutely bust me when she starts penning that snappy prose laced with all those sly subtle sarcastic phrases She’s like prim and proper meets saucy and bossy I find it interesting that the descriptions of her books never seem very appealing to me before I begin them I would direct your attention to the non chick flick portion of my “I’m a Man Intro” above For example Sense and Sensibility is the story of two sisters one emotionally reserved to put it mildly and proper and the other emotionally volatile and prone to disregard convention as they struggle with life and relationships following the death of their father Doesn’t it sound kinda Hallmark Networky? While I can appreciate that stuff it doesn’t generally produce boat float with me However the uality of the writing and the nuanced sassiness of the dialogue just warms my cockles and makes me prone to bouts of suealing Her characterization primarily the two sisters but true for the rest of the cast as well is so impeccably done that I keep expecting one of them to tap me on the shoulder as I’m readingdon’t worry none of them have yet but I’m still hoping Probably the most appealing aspect of Jane’s novels is the need for her intelligent strong willed female characters to move through the emotionally stifling reuirements of “Victorian” society So much of the charm of Jane’s writing revolves around the characters being forced to find an “acceptable” mode of expressing raw emotions when “bitch slapping” and “Fuck offing” just won’t do I love watching the characters having to comport themselves so “correctly” as they explain to each other that they are going to ruin their families steal their lovers etc I love the roadblocks that the Victorian setting erects in the emotional road of the story and how effortlessly Jane navigates around them She draws her characters feeling the deepest and rawest of emotions while having to maintain an outward appearance of dignity and respectability The fact that she is able to convey that crushing sense of emotion to the reader without depictions of expressive behavior is just another example of her boggle the mind brilliance Okay the gush must end and here is as good a place as any You should really read this one It’s good 50 to 55 STARS HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION PS I listened to the audio version of this narrated by Juliet Stevenson and she was superb

    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 wiser “The I know of the world the I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love I reuire so much” “If I could but know his heart everything would become easy” And this is the problem with society attaining money and keeping it unfortunately becomes the main signifier for someone’s worth Austen as per usual is razor sharp with her wit here There are so many ironic moments involving fortune hunters and extremely greedy and selfish relatives who only appear when they think there’s something to gain from their supposed loved ones Everybody is so obsessed with money so than I’ve seen in a any other Austen She always satirises the elites though here most of them seem to seek the same thing with no regard for othersI also loved the fact that there were two heroines opposed to one Elinor and Marianne are very different people and they interact with the world in very different ways though they each have their values and their faults Together they help each other and look out for each other as sisters should It’s a cruel world and it’s a hard world though the Dashwood sisters have each other and their mother They exemplify true family values which contrast against the self involved and rather moronic approach of Sir John DashwoodThis made me laugh He just loves money and seems unable like many other characters of finding new money All their wealth comes from inheritance rather than actual incomes They seem to have vast fortunes but don’t uite know how to add to them in an honest fashion He is also completely controlled by his wife At the start of the novel he seems so genuine but she twists him all too easily Perhaps he loved her so much that he was willing to neglect his family or perhaps he was already on the verge of making such a harsh decision and she gave him the slightest of nudges to send him over I don’t think we’ll ever know for sure The romances in here were fickle and self involved compared to her other novels It’s one of the rare cases in fiction such as this where I was unaware who would actually end up with whom But that’s just the nature of what Austen was trying to show here It also made the reading experience far entertaining In Pride and Prejudice Emma and even Persuasion it was so very clear how it would all end This one on the other hand made things a little lively And of course I could only ever give it five stars because of its subtle wit elouence of expression and sophisticated plot How I do love Austen I've just got Mansfield Park left to read nowFacebook| Twitter| Insta| Academia

    Jane Austen’s first published work Sense and Sensibility published in 1811 is straightforward than most of her later works The story focuses on two sisters ages 17 and 19 and how their romantic interests and relationships epitomize their different approaches to life The older sister Elinor embodies sense good judgment and discretionHer sister Marianne is emotional and volatile following her heart with a supreme disregard for what society might – and does – thinkElinor is pretty much always rightMarianne’s parade gets rained on in ways than oneAlthough at most points in this novel Austen seems to be saying very clearly that Elinor's approach of being sensible is superior to Marianne's sensibility every once in a while the story suggests that maybe being sensible all the time isn't the best idea and there needs to be some balance between the two extremes view spoilerFor example if Edward hadn’t been reasonably certain that Elinor wasn’t in love with him he probably wouldn’t have spent so much time with her when he wasn’t free to court her hide spoiler

    RE READ January 30 2019 Do you ever notice how Colonel Brandon is a man who steps up and takes care of things like a man? Edward is kind of useless I think Marianne got the real prize hereAlso 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 23 of the book In fact it is esteemed a bit And is Marianne really selfish? That could be debated six ways to Sunday The book is very complex There is a lot to think aboutRE READ September 6 2015This is one of my all time favorite books I like it even than I do Pride and PrejudiceEveryone goes crazy over Lizzie Bennett and idolizes her but my role model will always be Elinor Dashwood She is a great sister a trustworthy confidante someone who always acts with honor and compassion She is smart fiscally responsible stoic and strong I admire her so much and wish I could be like her in real lifeI hate John Dashwood and want to punch him in the throat Fucker It surprises me each time that he is the most hated character for me in the novelEveryone hates on Marianne but I like her So she's a silly teenager That's okay She certainly learns and grows than anyone else in the whole novel She has a good heart and loves her sister dearly I adore the scenes where she stands up for ElinorThe loving sister relationship is one of the best things about this novel Nothing melts my heart than good sibling relationships And Elinor and Marianne have each other's backs 100% Even though their personalities couldn't be different their love and compassion for each other knows no boundsAusten is genuinely funny I was snickering at some of her writing She's an amazing author She gets some jabs in there Elinor agreed to it all for she did not think he deserved the compliment of rational oppositionThe most hilarious line in the novel It is not everyone said Elinor who has your passion for dead leavesThe only man who was attractive to me was Colonel Brandon He was the only male who had me drawing little hearts in my notebook I can't be bothered with Edward I don't think he acted very honorably Although I always tear up at the end when Elinor is so overcome with emotion that she runs from the room Elinor could sit no longer She almost ran from the room and as soon as the door was closed burst into tears of joy which at first she thought would never ceaseOMG My heart is breaking so much 3 If anyone deserves a happy ending it's her Elinor was to be the comforter of others in her own distresses no less than in theirsShe never burdens others with her problems but is always there to comfort and listen to anyone else The way she deals with Lucy Steele She's a saint to put up with that OMGShe's beyond amazingview spoiler Marianne restored to life health friends and to her doting mother was an idea to fill her heart with sensations of exuisite comfort and expand it in fervent gratitude; but it led to no outward demonstrations of joy no words no smiles hide spoiler
