Description

Emma stands a little apart from Jane Austen's other novels. It is perhaps the most self-aware, socially critical and ironic of all her works. Her protagonist, Emma Woodhouse, is a beautiful, rich girl who is also spoiled, proud and blinded by her own situation in life. She begins to understand herself and life a little better when her romantic schemes - charitable good works to those around her - become entangled in tensions of class and of the heart.

Austen wrote of Emma, "I am going to take a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like."

      • content: 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!
