Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the editor of the popular Annotated Pride and Prejudice comes an edition of Jane Austen's Emma that makes her beloved tale of an endearingly inept matchmaker an even more satisfying and fulfilling read.

Juxtaposing the complete text of the novel with hundreds of annotations on facing pages, along with plentiful illustrations, maps, a chronology, and an introduction, David M. Shapard's delightfully entertaining edition brings Austen's world to life. Here you will find historical and social context; definitions of archaic words; citations from Austen's life and letters; and all kinds of details that illuminate the plot. The Annotated Emma is perfect for students, for reading groups, and, of course, for Janeites everywhere.

About the Author

Jane Austen (1775–1817) was born in Hampshire, England, where she spent most of her life. Though she received little recognition in her lifetime, she came to be regarded as one of the great masters of the English novel.

David M. Shapard is the author of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice, The Annotated Persuasion, The Annotated Sense and Sensibility, and The Annotated Emma. He graduated with a Ph.D. in European History from the University of California at Berkeley; his specialty was the eighteenth century. Since then he has taught at several colleges. He lives in upstate New York.
