Transcript of Sense and Sensibility
That's unfortunate because she spots Willoughby at the dance and approaches him. Marianne and Willoughby argue at the dance about the frequent letters she has been sending him. He argues back that she is never home when he comes to visit. After talking about this, Marianne asks him what is upsetting him however he won't say. The next morning, after the dance, Willoughby sent a letter that apologizes for his rudeness at the party. However, he states that he is now engaged to another woman. He also sent back, all three notes that Marianne had sent to him while she was in town. Also, the most heartbreaking thing in the letter was the return of her lock of hair which ultimately symbolizes the end of their relationship. Marianne and Elinor gain a closer and stronger relationship as they both try to comfort each other. Marianne begged Elinor to let them leave the next day. She said that the only reason she came was for Willoughby and now he doesn't love her anymore. Elinor declines the request while the sorrowful Marianne fell asleep. As the days go on, Mrs. Jennings tries to comfort Marianne but says a lot of wrong things. EX: "Poor thing! She looks very bad!" At another party, Colonel Brandon confronted Elinor and asked if the rumors he had heard of Marianne were true.
He visits her later on to explain is past encounter with love. Marianne receives sympathy from many people through out the next few day. Also, Elinor tells her of Colonel Brandon's past. Marianne sympathizes for him. Colonel Brandon's story: He was in love with a woman named Eliza. She married his brother to make sure that she would receive the family fortune. After treating her horribly, they were divorced and she was never heard from for a while. He once found her almost dead in her house and he cared for her until she died. Afterwords, he cared for her 3-year-old daughter. Now the daughter was grown up and it had been recently brought to his attention that she was the one that stole Willoughby from Marianne. How ironic! The sisters find that their brother has been in town for 2 days but "hasn't had time to see them." They all are invited to a party were they catch up on recent events. The party is made extremely awkward when Edward arrives and finds Lucy and Elinor talking to each other. It is then announced in the newspaper that Mr. and Mrs. Palmer had had a baby boy. Something amusing about the story was the fact that this new baby didn't phase Mr. Palmer. He said that all babies look alike. It became public that Edward had a previous engagement with Lucy. This seems to cause the sisters bond to become stronger because they can relate to their heartbreaking situations. Their brother visits to tell them that Edward's mother has stated that if he does not stop the engagement, she will disown him. When he rejects that option she does indeed disown him from the family and states that she will give all of her inheritance to Robert, the younger brother. Before leaving to return home, Colonel Brandon visits Elinor again to give her one more message. He wants her to tell Edward that he is welcomed to use his home after marrying Lucy. She tells Edward of the generosity and he is appalled by the massive gesture. The sisters travel to Cleveland to visit the Palmers. Marianne is still deeply depressed. After taking long walks in the cold, she gets terribly ill and her mother is brought to her my Colonel Brandon.
