Description-

  • An enchanting comedy of errors, Emma remains a classic two centuries after it was first published.


    Emma Woodhouse is a privileged young woman whose greatest pleasure in life lies in matchmaking for anyone but herself. Written, by Austen's own admission, as "a heroine whom no one but myself will much like," Emma's charm and wit exist in constant tension with her capacity for selfishness and vanity. Despite her intelligence, Emma stumbles from one catastrophe to the next—from a misguided attempt at securing a husband for her friend Harriet Smith to her disastrous meddling in the affairs of new arrivals Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax—before ultimately falling into her own unexpected happy ending.


    Both a discerning look at the strictures of Regency England and an enchanting comedy of errors, Emma remains a classic two centuries since it was first published.

About the Author-

  • Jane Austen (1775–1817) was an English novelist known for her fiction set among England's landed gentry. She was the seventh of eight children and was educated mostly at home in Hampshire. Her best-known works include Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma. Although her novels, all of which were published anonymously, did not bring her fame during her lifetime, she is now one of the most widely read writers in the English language.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books bigmelo - Are you a meticulous reader? If so, then check this book out of the library! Emma, written by the brilliant Jane Austen, introduces you to Emma Woodhouse, an audacious young woman with aspiring plans for the future. She lives on the estate of Highbury with her father, & still hasn't had any marriage arrangements. Emma doesn't really have many friends, let alone associates, except for Mr. George Knightley, a gentleman-like neighbor who is her only critic. Seeing as she found her governess a proper husband, Emma decides that she rather enjoys matchmaking, even if she isn't married herself. But as more characters, such as the charming Frank Churchill, or the innocent Jane Fairfax come into the picture, Emma is swept up in a complicated romance feud; wondering if she can ever end what she originally started to begin with. Want to know what happens? Read this incredible novel to find out!
  • Alexander McCall Smith

    "One of the finest novels in the English language . . . Possibly Jane Austen's most thought-provoking and interesting book."

  • The Guardian "Emma herself is endlessly fascinating, a woman to whom the reader returns again and again for the seductive intimacy of her thoughts. . . . You can object that Emma is a lady and a snob, but she also makes a timeless appeal to the reader's better nature."
