Description

Arrogant, self-willed and egotistical, Emma is Jane Austen’s most unusual heroine. Her interfering ways and inveterate matchmaking are at once shocking and comic. She is ‘handsome, clever and rich’ and has ‘a disposition to think too well of herself’. When she decides to introduce the humble Harriet Smith to the delights of genteel society and to find her a suitable husband, she precipitates herself and her immediate circle into a web of misunderstanding and intrigue, from which no-one emerges unchanged.

Juliet Stevenson, an incomparable reader, is for many the voice of Jane Austen.

        Jane Austen

        1775–1817

        One of the greatest English novelists, Jane Austen was born December 16, 1775, at Steventon Rectory, Hampshire, her home for twenty-five years. She was the seventh of eight children, six of them boys, of whom, two rose to be admirals. Her father, who took pupils, gave her a better education than was common, then, for girls; she learned French and Italian and had a good acquaintance with English literature, her favourite authors being Richardson, Johnson, Crabbe, Cowper, and, later, Scott. She sang a few old ballads with much sweetness and was very dexterous with her needle. She grew up tall and remarkably graceful in person, with bright hazel eyes, fine features, rich colouring and beautiful brown curly hair. Her disposition was very sweet and charming, and she was an especial favourite with children, whom she used to delight with her long improvised stories. In her life there is a hint of an affection for a lover who died suddenly, but there is no trace of such a tragedy in her books, which are cheerful and wholesome throughout, free from anything morbid or bitter. In 1801 she went with her family to Bath, and after her father’s death in 1805, removed to Southampton, and later (1809) to Chawton near Alton. She had written stories from her childhood, but it was at Chawton that she first gave anything to the world. Four stories were published anonymously during her lifetime – Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816). The first two works were written before she was more than two-and-twenty. Early in 1816 her health began to give way. In the May of 1817 she came for medical advice to Winchester, and here she died, July 18. She was buried in the cathedral. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published in 1818, when the authorship of the whole six was first acknowledged. Love and Friendship was published with other juvenilia in 1922; Sanditon, (unfinished) in 1925.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Many audiobook listeners with a penchant for catching up on the classics will recognize narrator Juliet Stevenson's voice in this outstanding recording. Stevenson's energetic rendition of this engaging novel, like the other classic titles she has performed, will captivate and enthrall. Her pleasing accent and comfortably brisk pace add sparkle to Austen's timeless story of scripted romance. As always, Stevenson seems to delight in creating gently distinct voices for her characters and infusing the narrative with appropriate inflection and enthusiasm. Rich in detail and understated humor, this novel is well suited to the audio format, and Stevenson's voice is the ideal vehicle to deliver it. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Taking an academic tone, Stevenson's solemn reading, punctuated by interludes of classical music, gives the listener a feeling of being educated, rather than entertained. The abridgment is somewhat awkward at times and, though faithful to the story, loses track of the lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek tone that Austen had in mind. Stevenson's Emma sometimes comes off as mean or unpleasant in dialogues that were meant to poke fun at her capricious ideas. Though well paced and nicely produced, it's a little heavy-handed for a story meant more as comedy than drama. K.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
