Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

About the Author

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. She is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. Fiona Stafford is a Fellow and Tutor in English at Somerville College, Oxford. Tony Tanner was a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, and Professor of English and American Literature at Cambridge.

Reviews

This is another case where a classic is being reprinted simply as a tie-in to a TV/feature film presentation. Libraries, nonetheless, can benefit by picking up a quality hardcover for a nice price.

This is by far my favourite of Jane Austen's books, and along with Anne Eliot from 'persuasion' is my favourite Jane Austen character. The story line is fantastic, and we can all recognise Emma as being the well meaning but interfering friend we all have. The dramatic irony is fanstastic and spot on! I thouroughtly recommend it.

Emma was quite a good book, since I was expecting this one to be a bit of a bore. With short chapters and a good writing style, Austen really hit the spot on this one. I would only recommend this book for adults, because children would not understand it. With a great story line and a really unique main character, Emma is one of a kind, and one can understand why it has survived so long.
