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.

Austen’s comic imagination was so deft and beautifully fluent that she could use it to probe the deepest human ironies while setting before us a dazzling gallery of characters—some pretentious or ridiculous, some admirable and moving, all utterly true.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jane Austen is my favorite author!”

    E. M. Forster

  • “Though Austen herself described Emma as ‘a heroine whom no one but myself will much like,’ she endowed her creation with enough charm to see her through her most egregious behavior, and the saving grace of being able to learn from her mistakes. By the end of the novel, Harriet, Frank, and Jane are all properly accounted for; Emma is wiser.”

    " Though there was no extra-ordinary or unique story in this book. But, you can very well learn the behavior and manners to practice in any social set-up. I liked the elegance and charm that the ladies possessed. "
