  • "Emma thinks she knows what is best for everybody, including herself. This is one of many editions of this 1815 novel. Emma, when first published in 1816, was written when Jane Austen was at the height of her powers. In it, we have her two greatest comic creations -- the eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and that quintissential bore, Miss Bates. In it, too, we have her most profound characterization: the witty, imaginative, self-deluded Emma, a heroine the author declared "no one but myself will much like," but who has been much loved by generations of readers. Delightfull funny, full of rich irony, Emma is regarded as one of Jane Austen's finest achievements."

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."

  • "Emma is used to ruling over the social lives of those living in Highbury, but she has a lesson to learn about trying to co-ordinate other people's lives and actions a little too much. Emma is an exquisitely crafted portrait of late 18th century society, generally considered to be Austen's most accomplished work. Set within the confines of a Surrey village it casts a penetrating but amusing eye on the polite, sometimes claustrophobic life of the local inhabitants. Memorable characters include Emma Woodhouse, self-appointed an meddling matchmaker who stands to lose out on love herself, social climbing vicar Mr Elton, and desirable bachelor Mr. Knightley."@en

  • "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with a comfortable house and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her. With this opening sentence, a reader might seem quite justified in thinking Jane Austen to have painted herself into a corner ... What could possibly happen from here? In Austen's comedic masterpiece, however, Emma fancies herself a superb judge of human character and becomes entrenched in the amorous affairs of her friends. In doing so, she remains oblivious to her own romantic possibilities, and the resulting comical misunderstandings are highly entertaining. This book is the acme of Jane Austen's work, wry and funny all at the same time."@en
  • "First published in 1816 and considered one of Jane Austen's finest works, Emma is a humorous portrayal of a heroine whose injudicious interferences in the life of a young parlour-boarder in a neighboring village often lead to substantial mortification. Austen brings to life a myriad of engaging characters and presents a mixture of social classes as she did in Pride and Prejudice. Her two greatest comic characters are part of Emma's machinations-the eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and the quintessential bore, Miss Bates. Delightfully funny, Emma displays the shrewd wit and delicate irony which made Jane Austen a master of the English novel. Although Austen thought that only she would like her witty, fanciful, self-deluded heroine, Emma has gained the affection of generations of readers."
