Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen's first published novel (1811), introduced its readers to many of the themes which would dominate Austen's future work. On one level it is a simple story of two sisters finding fulfilment within a society bounded by regulations and restrictions. But on another it is a comprehensive exploration of the moral dilemmas facing young women in the choices they have to make about their lives.

Novel by Jane Austen, published in 1814. In its tone and discussion of religious duty, it is the most serious of her novels. Mansfield Park shows Austen as a mature novelist with an almost unparalleled ability to render character.
