A Minute Meditation
Today is surely a significant day in English Literature, if not in World Literature. On this day Oct. 30, 1811, Sense and Sensibility was published By a Lady. This was followed by five more novels, all of which are still in print. In addition, numerous film versions have been made of all of them, and, no doubt, more will come. Just this year, a film version of one of her juvenalia just appeared.
She was only 42 when she died. What else might she have written had she lived another decade or two?
