One can infer from the title that Jane Austen may have been attempting to, by this story, demonstrate the relative virtues or dangers of sense vs sensibility. One can say that Elinor stands for "sense" while Marianne for "sensibility".
So if you buy into that premise, which do you think "won out" in JA's universe?
