With the title of Sense and Sensibility is connected one of those minor problems which delight the cummin-splitters of criticism. In the Cecilia of Madame D'Arblay—the forerunner, if not the model, of Miss Austen—is a sentence which at first sight suggests some relationship to the name of the book which, in the present series, inaugurated Miss Austen's novels. ' The whole of this unfortunate business ' —says a certain didactic Dr. Lyster, talking in capitals, towards the end of volume three of Cecilia —' has been the result of Pride and Prejudice,' and looking to the admitted familiarity of Miss Austen with Madame D'Arblay's work, it has been concluded that Miss Austen borrowed from Cecilia the title of her second novel. But here comes with the little problem to which we have referred. Pride and Prejudice, it is true, was written and finished before Sense and Sensibility —its original title for several years being First Impressions.
