Emma

Emma is the culmination of Jane Austens genius, a sparkling comedy of love and marriage. Emma Woodhouse is introduced to us as handsome, clever and rich and, according to Jane Austen, a heroine which no one but myself would like. Yet such is Emmas spirited wit that, despite her superior airs and egotism, few readers have failed to succumb to her charm. The comedy turns Emma is the culmination of Jane Austens genius, a sparkling comedy of love and marriage. Emma Woodhouse is introduced to us as handsome, clever and rich and, according to Jane Austen, a heroine which no one but myself would like. Yet such is Emmas spirited wit that, despite her superior airs and egotism, few readers have failed to succumb to her charm. The comedy turns on Emmas self-appointed role as energetic match-maker for her sweet, silly friend Harriet. Emma herself, meanwhile, is confidently immune to the charms of the male sex. Her emotional coming of age is woven into what Ronald Blythe has called the happiest of love stories, the most fiendishly difficult of detective stories and a matchless repository of English wit.
