As it impinges on our will or understanding, we give it different names – goodness or truth or the like. But its flash upon our senses and mood is pleasure.” ―C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, pg.

He was received by Mrs. Dashwood with more than politeness -- with a kindness which Sir John's account of him and her own gratitude prompted; and everything that passed during the visit, tended to assure him of the. The cold insolence of Mrs. Ferrars's general behaviour to her sister, seemed, to her, to foretell such difficulties and distresses to Elinor, as her own wounded heart taught her to think of with horror; and urged by a strong impulse of affectionate sensibility, she moved, after a moment, to her sister's chair, and putting one arm round her neck.

Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy.

These pure and spontaneous pleasures are "patches of Godlight" in the woods of our experience.” ― C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer. Sense and Sensibility, for those readers who don’t know, is the story of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, sisters who encounter many obstacles on the path to true love.

As with Pride and Prejudice, the title Sense and Sensibility is significant. Elinor, the older of the sisters, is ruled by sense – she is not given to great shows of emotion or.

There are passages that suggest such a reading: “beauty is such an order and constitution of parts, as is fitted to give a pleasure and satisfaction to the soul” (T, ; see SOT, ).

The dispositional analysis of beauty is attributed to Hume by Savile (, p. ), Mothersill (, pp. –), and Levinson (). The variety of the sources of that beauty which is founded on forms illustrated from the different styles of architecture never notice object obligation occasion operation original painful parents particular passions perception perhaps persons pleasing pleasure portion possess possible present principle propensity proper question reason.

Contrast is used with line effect. Elinor's sense is contrasted with her sister's sensibility. Edward's loyalty to Lucy contrasts with Willoughby's betrayal of Marianne. Mrs. Jennings' good humor is in strong contrast to Mrs.

Ferrars' sourness. Every page of the novel reflects Austen's own quiet temperament, her good sense, and her humor.

"Beauty is truth, truth beauty; that is all ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know." - John Keats () "Beauty is the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole." - Leon B. Alberti.

Elinor, in this chapter, does not seem to assess Edward as an individual; she lists a number of qualities admired at the time: " his mind is well informed, his enjoyment of books exceeding great, his imagination lively, his observation just and correct, and his taste delicate and pure." Therefore, it is proper that she should admire him.

It is now almost exactly two centuries since the first two of Jane Austen's six completed novels - Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice - were published, and for much of that time writers and critics have passionately disagreed about the true caliber of her work.

Austen's books received a few respectful reviews and lively attention. InSense and Sensibility became the first published novel of the English author Jane Austen (). The first version of the novel was probably written in as an epistolary novel (novel in letters) entitled "Elinor and Marianne." At this point, Austen was still living in the home of her father, George Austen, a local Anglican rector and the father of eight children.

This leads some to believe that the book's title describes how Elinor and Marianne find a balance between sense and sensibility in life and love. Austen wrote the first draft of Elinor and Marianne (later retitled Sense and Sensibility) c.when she was about 19 years old, in epistolary form.

No Austen story can tempt me more than Pride and Prejudice, but I do consider Sense and Sensibility to be something of a clumsier precursor to that beloved book. Austen ambitiously balances humor, sincerity of affection, meditative reasoning, and even a testosterone-fueled midnight scene between a selfish lover and the book's protagonist, s: K.

She persuaded him to reduce his gift from to pounds.

She said that the three daughters had a sizable fortune already from their parents, and John agreed that it would perhaps be more sensible to give Mrs.

Dashwood one hundred. Their talk vividly illustrates the arguments for both sensual pleasure-seeking and moral moderation. Playwright, dramatist, poet, critic—Wilde openly defied the mores of Victorian society. His literary repartee fueled an “if it feels good, do it” humanistic philosophy that is still prevalent in the world today.

The Pleasures of Wine isn't a book that a casual wine drinker is likely to embrace. To continue with my analogy from above, it's more like a seminar for upperclassmen than it is a freshman survey course, despite the broad swath of subjects covered in the 30+ essays.

The beauty of this palace shows incomparable sensibility and harmony. Light, water, colours and exquisite decoration turn this palace into a marvellous pleasure for the senses. The abstract and geometric decoration steps back in this palace for a more naturalistic style to dominate, as the result of the Christian influence, which was even.

Sense and Sensibility, a novel by Jane Austen that was published anonymously in three volumes in and that became a classic.

The pointedly satirical, comic work offers a vivid depiction of 19th-century middle-class life as it follows the romantic relationships of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood.

Jane Austen’s first published novel, Sense and Sensibility, is a witty satire of the sentimental novel, a popular genre in Britain throughout the s and the Regency. When it first appeared inthe words in its title carried significant cultural weight beyond the confines of the novel, and into both popular and learned discourse.

Sense and Sensibility (Contd) The man and one of the maids were sent off immediately into Devonshire, to prepare the house for their mistress's arrival; for, as Lady Middleton was entirely unknown to Mrs. Dashwood, she preferred going directly to the cottage to being a visitor at Barton Park; and she relied so undoubtingly on Sir John's description of the house, as to feel no curiosity to.
