Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emma, first published in 1816, was written when Jane Austen was at the height of her powers. In a novel remarkable for its sparkling wit and modernity, Austen presents readers with two of literatures greatest comic creationsthe eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and that quintessential bore, Miss Bates. Here, too, we have what may well be Jane Austens most profound characterization: the witty, imaginative, self-deluded Emma, a heroine the author declared “no one but myself will much like,” but who has been much loved by generations of readers. Delightfully funny, full of rich irony, Emma is regarded as one of Jane Austens finest achievements.

'Emma' is the story of a young girl who spends a majority of her time attempting to match her newest friend with a man to marry. After too much meddling and hurting other people, Emma decides to take a break from match-making. It is then that Emma and her friend discover who they truly love...
