    Sense and Sensitive

    Do you know book "Sense and Sensitive" (wrote Jane Austen)? Is it a well known book in English speaking countries? I live in CZ and I must admit I dont know it at all. If you know it, what is it about?

    It is called "Sense and Sensibility", and you can read a review here:

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    So for those who come from UK it is well known book? I mean very well known? Like every child (or man) knows it?

    Re:
    • The Fall of the House of Usher and other stories Edgar Allan Poe


    It is perhaps one of the first horror stories in literature. Read also The Telltale Heart and Murders in the Rue Morgue. Poe was a master of the genre.
