Similarities between Jane Austens Emma and Sense and Sensibility
Similarities between Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Introduction Sense and Sensibility was published in 1811 whereas Emma came into book form five years later, in 1816.

From what I’ve gathered by reading these two books is that although her male characters (especially the eligible, dashing suitors whom her heroines, in these two books at least, never marry) may be more
