Summary

Often said to be Jane Austen's most perfect novel, Emma is also the perfect read - with a very imperfect - but loveable - heroine...

Emma Summary

Emma by Jane Austen

Like many girls, Emma Woodhouse thinks she knows best. Her heart is in the right place - but her head isn't. Beautiful, clever and rich, she only wants to help others arrange things as she thinks they should be done. Emma has no interest in true love for herself: convinced she's just not destined to find it, she believes she must instead devote herself to playing Cupid for others.

Ignoring the warnings of good family friend Mr Knightley, Emma sets out to find a husband for her favourite new companion, the lovely, shy Harriet Smith. But absolutely nothing goes to plan - and in the process, Emma has a lot of learning to do: about others, but most of all about herself.

Emma Reviews

From the youthful energy of Northanger Abbey to the subtle art of Persuasion, these works reveal the breadth and artistry of one of the most beloved novelists of all time. Now, these timeless novels of manners, morals, and love have been beautifully repackaged to appeal to a new generation of readers. A strikingly designed collection, featuring new introductions as well as reading group guides.

About Jane Austen

Jane Austen was born in 1775, in Steventon, Hampshire, where her father was rector. When she was 25 the family moved to Bath till her father's death in 1805, then to Chawton in Hampshire where Jane lived with her mother and sister. She wrote six novels. Sense and Sensibility was first in 1811, then Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816). Northanger Abbey and Persusaion were both published posthumously, in 1817. Jane Austen died in 1817.
Well-received during her lifetime, since her death she has become known as not just one of the greatest writers of English fiction, but one of the most beloved.
