The Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011

The Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 20112011 is a celebratory year for Jane Austen and her legion of fans. It marks the bicentenary of her first published novel, Sense and Sensibility. Since 1811, we have been enjoying her romantic, dramatic and witty story filled with divergent characters – the Dashwood sisters: cool, practical Elinor and emotional, impulsive Marianne, and the men in their lives: stoic Edward Ferrars, staid Colonel Brandon and rakish Willoughby. There is much to praise in this novel which has inspired many movie adaptations, book sequels and spinoffs.

The Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011

We are very pleased to announce the Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011. If you have not read Jane Austen’s masterpiece or would like to revisit it in honor of its significant anniversary, seen all of the movies or read all of the sequels and spinoffs, this is the year to join the challenge along with other Janeites, historical fiction readers and period drama movie lovers.

Challenge Details

Time-line: The Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011 runs January 1, through December 31, 2011.

  1. A wonderful way to resolve to celebrate this bicentennial! For the New Year can we also resolve to pay attention to the distinction between the possessive ‘apostrophe s’ and the plural ‘no-apostrophe s’ – as in Brandon’s and 3 Weismanns… Whew!

    • Haven’t read any other version except for the Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. I would love to recommend Sense and Sensibility (1995) adaption starring Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant and Kate Winslet. It is such a beautiful movie and definitely my favourite.

    • Hi Adriana, this is a reading and viewing challenge, so a bit different than a blog tour. People sign up and choose which books and movies they want to read/view and write a blog review or leave comments about them when they complete each one in their challenge. It is ongoing throughout the year and not a set date. I hope that is helpful. Laurel Ann

  3. I’m shamed into saying I’ve never read Sense & Sensibility. I’ve been completely awed and enrapture with P&P for the last decade that I haven’t read S&S yet, so I’m definitely joining this challenge and going for the neophyte level.

    Thanks for hosting an awesome challenge Laurel Ann.

          • Elsie, I am really looking forward to your comments on Brightsea. I have had this novel sitting on my shelf for a couple of years. I am intrigued. It was written in the 1980’s I think, and out of print, so even more of a mystery.

              Ok here is what I think about it:

              This is a weekend reading, small book very funny, I think Jane Gillespie capture the personalities of Nancy and Lucy Steele wonderful.

              I had so much fun reading their conversations and was laughing my head off when….I do not remember exaclty the quotes, but was something like…
              -I can not accept marry him, he is a thief (said Louisa)

              and Nancy said something like

              -What? why not? what that has to do with rejecting him?

              hahaha…you will have so much fun reading it

              I’m not a writer just a reader, so please do not expect from me a review…reason why I read yours =)

This past year was the first year I even knew any of you existed and it has enriched my journey through Austen all the more. I didn’t even realize there was an annotated S & S. I loved the P & P one so I’m sure I’ll gain even more from this one. Thank you so much!

    • Oops, I forgot I had picked Brightsea! Seeing if I can get it from the library now! But the others: so good to re-watch the movies. Often I’ve resorted to my favorite clips of movies to save myself watching some of the heartbreak but then of course I’m losing the overall depth of the story. Really liked From Prada to Nada, actually, and I’ve become a big Camilla Belle fan! (I really want her jacket from her 2nd last scene!). Colonel Brandon’s Diary was of course amazing!

  16. O.K. I certainly can’t resist this one. Put me down as an aficionada, though I do not yet know which books/movies I’ll review. Though I have read/seen most of the options, I look forward to using this as an opportunity to review those I have not previously commented on, but I’m most excited to fill in the blanks with those that I am currently unfamiliar with. In particular, I am ecstatic to learn that Shaphard is coming out with an annotated S & S! One question – am I correct in my understanding that it is only the grand prize which those who comment on participating blogs will be entered? Very enthused, Laurel Ann. This will be great fun.

    • Hi Faith Hope and Cherrytea, welcome to the Sense and Sensibility Reading Challenge. Looking over your list, I wanted to point out that this is a S&S based challenge. You have other Jane Austen books and movies listed. It is wonderful if you want to read/watch them, but they would not qualify for this challenge. The list of some of the S&S reading/viewing possibilities is within the post. You can select from those or find new ones. They just need to be S&S inspired.

  60. Hi Laurel Ann

    Splendid, a marvellous idea this S&S BC 2011, sounds like fun

    I’m joining in and start with the reread of S&S and continue with a handful of selections as follow, order pending (Disciple!).

    My list

    1. Sense and Sensibility
    2. What would Jane Austen do?, Laurie Brown
    3. Evelina, Frances Burney
    4. A Charming Place, by Maggie Lane
    5. In the Steps of Jane Austen – Walking Tours of Austen’s England, Anne-Marie Edwards
    6. Everyday Life in Regency and Victorian England – From 1811-1901, Kristine Hughes
    7. Antipodes Jane – A Novel of Jane Austen in Australia, Barbara Ker Wilson
    8. Black Sheep, Georgette Heyer

    • Hi Mariele, thanks for your enthusiasm. Your list is quite impressive. This is actually a Sense and Sensibility reading and viewing challenge, so only your first selection would qualify. You can read over the list of titles in the post above and select from those or others that are S&S related. You still qualify for the challenge with just one title, S&S, on your list.

      Cheers, Laurel Ann

      • Hi Laurel Ann,

        I’m sorry, it’s my fault, I failed to pay attention to the given conditions

        Instead I made a list full of some books from my shelf with any reference to Jane Austen and S&S in the broader sense

        So, again I’ll have a rummage through my bookcase to dig up some bits and pieces of the particular list

        In any case I’m really tickled by the challenge

  69. I’m only more than a month beyond the closing of the signups, but I’m playing anyway :)

    Rereading S&S was heavenly, and I’m looking forward to reveling in S&S for the rest of 2011…and beyond.

  70. I’m waay too late to sign up but I’m playing anyhow — and I’m going to the 2011 JASNA AGM in Ft. Worth in October! Well, I’m planning on it, registration doesn’t start until May or June. But I’ve already booked my hotel room. I am all anticipation.

  71. Well, I finished Sense and Sensibility and loved it. It was amazing how closely the Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant movie was to the book.

    Now, I would like to know where I could find Marvel Illustrated book. This is great fun, I am enjoying all of your comments.
