XIV) Marianne is not a perfect character, but her emotions and spirit add a depth and realness that jumps off the page. Her ethical code of values allows her find balance and saves her from tragedy. It is Marianne’s conversion in Sense and Sensibility that holds the novel together and where the lesson lies. The romantic appeal of Marianne as a heroine is strong; readers must ascertain a balance of sense and sensibility along side Marianne.
Charlotte was both." She is not only motherly, but hardworking, and her web words prove it. She is the same wise and selfless character at the end of the story that she was at the beginning, which makes her the ideal model of unconditional love. In Wilbur's first conversation with Charlotte, Wilbur's discovery of how Charlotte survives impedes their new friendship, "Charlotteis fierce, brutal, scheming, bloodthirsty- everything I don't like. How can I learn to like her, even though she is pretty and, of course, clever?"
Basically, the motto “love at first sight” was implemented and they were into each other immediately “When Jane and Elizabeth were alone, the former, who had been cautious in her praise of Mr. Bingley before, expressed to her sister how very much she admired him” (Austen, 1970). Not only did appearence play a key part, but both characters were also attracted to each other from their counterparts manors. Jane being attracted to Bingley’s gentle manner and Bingley attracted to Jane’s tenderness manor. Based off this relationship, the whole package of appearance/emotion helped these characters be equals and find true love which was very important to Ms.
However, during the coarse of the novel we see different sides to the sisters’ personalities making the statement in the essay title only partly true, as some incidents, most obviously the ironic ending, reveal to us that some role-reversal can take place. Elinor, commonly known throughout the novel as Miss Dashwood, was created by Austen to contrast with the heroines in most novels of the time, who were over-emotional characters, fainting at the slightest hint of trouble. Austen makes her heroine a strong, understanding, and cool figure “… which qualified her, though only nineteen to be the counsellor of her mother”. Elinor takes over after her father dies so she has to be strong for the benefit of her mother and sisters. From this we can clearly s... ... middle of paper ... ...re is a complete turnaround in Marianne’s character.
In Sense and Sensibility - Mrs. Dashwood is loving, but has too much of a romantic sensibility. In Persuasion the mother is dead, but is highly praised. She brought up Anne quite respectably. Anne is kind and loyal. Lady Russell - she really has a good heart and good sense.
Jane perfectly fits the criteria of a confidante because she is optimistic and sanguine, in which she can provide Elizabeth a different, more positive, approach to her problems. The author uses Jane Bennet to portray a paradigm of a young lady in England during that time period, where marriages depended on money and family relations; she is a counterexample of Elizabeth because Elizabeth is more rebellious and against the status quo of the time period, whereas Jane would gladly fulfill her parents’ decisions for her. Although she might not be aware of it, Jane actually proves to be remarkably essential in Elizabeth’s engaging with Mr. Darcy; whenever Jane and Mr. Bingley are together Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have an opportunity to converse and, ultimately, fall in love with each other. Elizabeth seems to be a more realistic character than her benevolent sister, Jane. Elizabeth is able to scrutinize and recognize that people are definitely deceiving and limited.

Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour”, provides more than an unhappy marriage, it delivers her ideas on marriage, love and a woman independence from a structure of male dominance. Many would still describe Mrs. Mallard as a selfish, lonely, and sympatric wife, again, there is a disconnect between the outer world and her introverted self.
After falling and meeting her "knight in shining armor," Marianne quickly fell in love with Willoughby wi... ... middle of paper ... ...arrying Colonel Brandon, who also had displayed sense throughout the novel, Marianne further bridged the gap between her and sense. Through Marianne and Elinor were polar opposites at the beginning of the novel with Elinor acting completely with sense and Marianne with sensibility, they managed to come more towards a moderate spot in the spectrum. Marianne finally acted with sense, marrying Colonel Brandon, a more practical marriage than Willoughby. Meanwhile, Elinor displayed some sensibility, finally shedding tears that had built up throughout the book. Austen appropriately named this novel "sense and sensibility," and not "sense or sensibility," because she wanted to convey the idea that either extreme of the spectrum leads to misery and unhappiness.
Elinor portrays the “sense” of the title, and is different from her sister Marianne; she is practical, reserved and very thoughtful. She is able to control her feelings and see the more calm, practical way with her love interest, telling Marianne that she has feelings for Edward, “I do not attempt to deny that I think very highly of him, that I… greatly esteem him… I like him.” (Austen 35). Although she expressed this to Marianne she quickly brushes them off, “I by no means sure of ... ... middle of paper ... ...is but allowed her to flaws and make a change for the better. Dealing with heartbreak not only brought the two heroines together, but in fact helped them change one another. Elinor who always kept her feelings in learned to let it out and express them while Marianne who was too passionate and eager to find a man learned to calm down and wait for the right time.
This is especially apparent in her friendship with Isabella Thorpe. She becomes immediately close to Isabella who is attractive, intelligent and socially confident, but who later emerges as the anti heroine of the novel. Isabelle appear... ... middle of paper ... ...e you must respect for her sincerity, her high principles, her generous trust of others, and her patience under trails that would be too great for much stronger heads...and in spite of her romantic folly she has so much good heart that it serves her in place of good sense” . It seems both these critics have missed the point about Catherine, her inadequacies as a heroine, such as they are, exists because Austen tries to do too much with her – “to establish her both s a gooselike parody of the sentimental gothic heroine, and to advance claims for her as a human being who would learn good sense and learn even to go beyond it” . Catherine is a true Austen heroine, not only because she learns to examine her own spirit, heart and mind so that she is able to mature beyond her flaws, but also because she inspires readers to develop truly heroic behaviour themselves.
