Book Overview: Emma

Although described by Jane Austen as a character 'whom no one but myself will much like,' the irrepressible Emma Woodhouse is one of her most beloved heroines. Clever, rich and beautiful, she sees no need for marriage, but loves interfering in the romantic lives of others, until her matchmaking plans unravel, with consequences that she never expected. Jane Austen's novel of youthful exuberance and gradual self-knowledge is a brilliant, sparkling comic masterpiece.

"Jane Austen is my favorite author! ... Shut up in measureless content, I greet her by the name of most kind hostess, while criticism slumbers." --EM Forster

Jane Austen
Jane Austen was a renowned English novelist, best known for her six major novels that critique the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Born on December 16, 1775, in Steventon, Hampshire, England, Austen's works explore themes of women's dependency on marriage for social standing and economic security. Her most famous works include 'Pride and Prejudice,' 'Sense and Sensibility,' and 'Emma.' Despite the contemporary popularity of her works, Austen's identity as an author was not widely known during her lifetime. Austen died on July 18, 1817, but her writing continues to be celebrated for its wit, social commentary, and realistic characters. Her novels have inspired numerous adaptations and are considered classics in the world of literature.
