This novel contrasts two sisters: Marianne, who, with her doctrines of love at first sight, fervent emotions overtly expressed, and admiration of the grotesque "picturesque", represents the cult of "sensibility"; and Elinor, who has much more "sense", but is still not immune from disappointments. It was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be published, and appeared without her name on the title page (only "By a Lady").

According to Cassandra, it was probably the first of the novels to be started (sometime before 1797, under the early name Elinor and Marianne). It heavily revised before publication in 1811.
