Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen's first published novel is a delightful comedy of manners and a powerful analysis of the ways in which women's lives were shaped by the claustrophobic society in which they had to survive. It is an engrossing story of love, money, passion and prudence. Intelligently written, carefully plotted and beautifully detailed. It has been dramatised in two parts by Helen Edmundson whose previous radio dramatisations include Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge; Bennet's Anna of the Five Town's and Woolf's The Voyage Out.
