Haikus from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

From a book categorized as Domestic fiction and 364 pages follows a description and a number of hidden haikus found in the book:

This first of Jane Austen's published novels is the story of two starkly different English sisters: Elinor Dashwood, the epitome of prudence and self-control, and her younger, more impetuous sister Marianne, who embodies emotion, openness, and sheer enthusiasm. To each comes the sorrow of unhappy love: Elinor desires a man who is promised to another, while Marianne loses her heart to a scoundrel who jilts her. Their mutual suffering brings a closer understanding between the two sisters--and true love finally triumphs when sense gives way to sensibility and sensibility gives way to sense. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

Did you not think him
dreadful low-spirited when
he was at Barton?

Elinor hardly
knew whether to smile or sigh
at this assertion.

Margaret and I shall
be as much benefited
by it as yourselves.

"No engagement!" "No,
he is not so unworthy
as you believe him.

On the contrary,
every friend must be made still
more her friend by them.
