Emma. Introd. by R. Brimley Johnson

Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, ""I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like."" In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as ""Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich."" Emma, however, is also rather spoiled; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; and she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives and is often mistaken about the meanings of others' actions.

  • "Emma Woodhouse is a young woman who, having engineered the marriage of her companion, turns her attention toward making a match for the local vicar and her new protegee, Harriet Smith. Her one voice of reason and restraint is Mr. Knightley, who has known her since she was a child and who watches her behavior with wry amusement and sometimes with real anger. Emma presides over the small provincial world of Highbury with enthusiasm, but she will find it is all too easy to confuse good intentions with self-gratification."
  • "Emma Woodhouse régente la vie affective de sa protégée Harriet, bâtarde et orpheline, mais découvre qu'elle est elle-même le jouet de son soupirant : un ami méprisé qui reviendra à elle et lui épargnera la honte."
  • "Handsome, clever, and rich, "Emma Woodhouse seems blessed with every gift that kind fortune can bestow on a proper young Englishwoman. But at one-and-twenty, Emma still has lessons to learn about human nature and the mysteries of the heart. Jane Austen's masterpiece paints a charming portrait of English village society and of a heroine as delightful as she is infuriating."
  • "The most perfect of Jane Austen's perfect novels begins with twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse comfortably dominating the social order in the village of Highbury, convinced that she has both the understanding and the right to manage other people's lives -- for their own good, of course. Her well-meant interfering centers on the aloof Jane Fairfax, the dangerously attractive Frank Churchill, the foolish if appealing Harriet Smith, and the ambitious young vicar Mr. Elton -- and ends with her complacency shattered, her mind awakened to some of life's more intractable dilemmas, and her happiness assured."

However, in the midst of the search she settles on a most unlikely union with her own constant critic: Mr. Knightly.

She is imposed upon, and imposes upon herself; it is a long while before she sees things as they are, and recognizes where her own happiness lies. Her hero is one of Jane's sober, clear-eyed, and perfect men. The Fairfax and Churchill subplot furnishes a comedy of dissimulation contrasting didactically with Emma's honesty. A formidable snob and vulgarian, Mrs. Elton, and a good-natured bore, Miss Bates, who would be insufferable outside these pages are among the more laughable characters." Baker.

  • "Jane Austen began writing Emma in 1814, and it was published anonymously in 1816. The heroine is the charming and clever Emma Woodhouse, who manages to deceive herself in a number of ways. The book describes a year in the life of the village of Highbury and its vicinity, during which Emma manages to overcome her self delusion. Along the way there is much in the way of heartbreak, romance and detailed, character portraiture. It is widely considered to be Austen's finest work."@en

  • "This special edition of Emma includes the famous illustrations by Charles Edmond Brock, created in 1898. Brock and his brothers were all successful illustrators of the day and often posed for each other using costumes, props and furniture in their Cambridge studio. Brock's younger brother, Henry, also illustrated Austen's books and joined him in illustrating other Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions. In conceiving Emma Woodhouse, Jane Austen set out to create a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like. A naive and spoiled young lady, she is at the pinnacle of local society and lives with her doddering father. Her neighbor Mr. Knightley is the hero of the tale. Ten years her senior, he sees Emma's faults, and delights in pointing them out to her. Emma, as an heiress, has no need to marry, but she feels strongly that her less fortunate friends must certainly do so, and she is tireless in promoting the best interests of those she holds dear. Her first project is her new friend Harriet Smith, a young lady of unknown parentage, but sweet disposition. After thoroughly disrupting a match between Harriet and a handsome young local farmer, Emma pushes Harriet to aim for the vicar, who himself has his eye on Emma. By the time that misunderstanding is untangled, Emma has Mr. Knightley thoroughly disapproving of her. Against the backdrop of Highbury society, Emma is a charming tale of a young woman coming of age, learning to mind her own business, and discovering her own heart resides with the strong, steadfast gentleman next door."

Emma's latest scheme involves finding a suitable husband for ingenue Harriet Smith, and to that end she persuades the latter to reject good-natured farmer Robert Martin, despite a mutual attraction. Harriet must set her sights higher, she exhorts, fixing on a local clergyman Mr. Elton as perfect marriage material. The plan goes badly awry, and prompts much verbal jousting with Mr. Knightley, who champions Martin's cause and upbraids Emma for her mischievous meddling. Emma does eventually learn the folly of her ways, and meets her own match in the process, but only after a series of painful misunderstandings. Jane Austen returns to her perennial themes of class and courtship, demonstrating once again her insight into the human character in this masterly comedy of manners."

Despite her intelligence, Emma stumbles from one catastrophe to the next—from a misguided attempt at securing a husband for her friend Harriet Smith to her disastrous meddling in the affairs of new arrivals Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax—before ultimately falling into her own unexpected happy ending.

  • "Emma is a comedic novel by Jane Austen published in 1815, generally regarded as the most perfectly constructed of all her works, concerning the perils of misconstrued romance. Although convinced that she herself will never marry, Emma Woodhouse, a precocious twenty-year-old resident of the village of Highbury, imagines herself to be naturally gifted in conjuring love matches. After self-declared success at matchmaking between her governess and Mr. Weston, a village widower, Emma takes it upon herself to find an eligible match for her new friend, Harriet Smith. Though Harriet's parentage is."@en

  • "In einer neuen Übersetzung: Austens ironisch-subtilster Roman, in dessen Mittelpunkt die schöne, reiche und kluge Emma Woodhouse steht. Erschienen 1816, ist Jane Austens letztes und reifstes Werk. Wie die meisten Romane der Autorin führt auch dieser in die Welt des soliden englischen Bürgertums zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts. Emma Woodhouse, Tochter aus wohlhabendem Haus, gibt sich mit Vorliebe dem Vergnügen hin, die Geschicke anderer Menschen zu lenken, sie lebt für das das Ehestiften, was zu allerlei Missverständnissen und Komplikationen führt. Ihre enttäuschenden Erfahrungen zwingen sie jedoch zu Selbstkritik und tragen zu einem besseren Verständnis ihrer selbst und ihrer Umgebung bei."
  • "As daughter of the richest, most important man in the small provincial village of Highbury, Emma Woodhouse is firmly convinced that it is her right--perhaps even her "duty"--To arrange the lives of others. Considered by most critics to be Austen's most technically brilliant achievement, "Emma" sparkles with ironic insights into self-deception, self-discovery, and the interplay of love and power."@en

  • "Emma Woodhouse is an heiress, a spoiled child and an incorrigible meddler. Having taken on the role of the village's self-appointed matchmaker, she dreams up scenarios that consistently fail and often with comical results. She meddles in the lives of her friends with near-disastrous results, all the while being blind to her own romantic feelings toward Mr. Knightly who, though not particularly handsome, is an excellent verbal sparring partner with whom she can match wits and social observations."

  • "Content with her life and not interested in marriage, Emma Woodhouse, a rich and beautiful heiress, causes complications with her matchmaking schemes."
  • "Emma's opening sentence, which describes the titular heroine's many advantages, is loaded with foreboding. Discomfort and vexation lie on the horizon, triggered by her penchant for matchmaking. Emma's latest scheme involves finding a suitable husband for ingenue Harriet Smith, and to that end she persuades the latter to reject good-natured farmer Robert Martin, despite a mutual attraction. Harriet must set her sights higher, she exhorts, fixing on a local clergyman Mr. Elton as perfect marriage material. The plan goes badly awry, and prompts much verbal jousting with Mr. Knightley, who champions Martin's cause and upbraids Emma for her mischievous meddling. Emma does eventually learn the folly of her ways, and meets her own match in the process, but only after a series of painful misunderstandings. Jane Austen returns to her perennial themes of class and courtship, demonstrating once again her insight into the human character in this masterly comedy of manners. -- from publisher."
  • "Emma Woodhouse is a young woman in Regency England. She lives with her father, a valetudinarian who is principally characterized by excessive concern for the health and safety of his loved ones. Emma's friend and only critic is the gentlemanly Mr. Knightley, her "neighbour" and brother of her sister's husband. As the novel opens, Emma has just attended the marriage of Miss Taylor, her old governess and best friend. Having introduced Miss Taylor to her future husband Mr Weston, Emma smugly takes credit for their marriage, and decides that she rather likes matchmaking."@en

Considered by most critics to be Austen's most technically brilliant achievement, "Emma" sparkles with ironic insights into self-deception, self-discovery, and the interplay of love and power."
  • "Austen only completed six novels in her lifetime, of which five feature young women whose chances for making a good marriage depend greatly on financial issues, and whose prospects if they fail are rather grim. Emma is the exception: "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home 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.""@en

  • "From the Publisher: The funny and heartwarming story of a young lady whose zeal, snobbishness and self-satisfaction lead to several errors in judgment. Emma takes Harriet Smith, a parlor boarder and unknown, under her wing and schemes for advancement through a good marriage. The attempts at finding Harriet a suitor occupy all of Emma's time. However, in the midst of the search she settles on a most unlikely union with her own constant critic: Mr. Knightly. Jane Austen's works have claimed a renewed popularity and audience with the release of motion pictures Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Clueless based upon Austen's classic novels. Emma was originally published in 1816."
  • "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."
  • "Lively young socialite Emma Woodhouse likes nothing more than interfering in the romantic lives of others and when she appoints herself matchmaker to her gentle friend Harriet, she has no idea just how much chaos she will create, and soon her carefully laid plans unravel with consequences that she never expected. Might this social disorder bring about a match for Emma herself?"
