Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new edition of Jane's Austen's 19th-century British novel presents the 1816 text along with contemporary critical essays that introduce students to Emma from gender, new historical, Marxist, cultural, and feminist perspectives. An additional essay demonstrates how various critical perspectives can be combined. The text and essays are complemented by contextual documents, introductions (with bibliographies), and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms.
