Calling Jane Austen's Emma "charming," Harold Bloom states, "Austen is not writing a tragedy of the will...but a great comedy of the will." He goes on to say that Austen's heroines have firmly defined selves, each molded with an individuality that suggests the author's potential for creating endless diversity in her enduring works. This new edition of contemporary critical commentary on this classic novel, also features a bibliography, a chronology of Austen's life, and an index for quick reference.
