SUNDAY, January 15 at 4:00pm: Tea Time with Jane Austen

More from Sense and Sensibility:  the lives and loves of the Dashwood sisters: prudent Elinor, expressive Marianne, with the ever adventurous young Margaret and their Mother the widowed Mrs. Dashwood along with them.  The novel follows the young ladies and their Mother to their new home, a meager cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience love, romance and heartbreak.

Jane Austen wrote the first draft of the novel in the form of a novel-in-letters  sometime around 1795 when she was about 19 years old, and gave it the title, Elinor and Marianne. She later changed the form to a narrative and the title to Sense and Sensibility.By changing the title, Austen added "philosophical depth" to what began as a sketch of two characters.
