Publisher's Description

The real evils, indeed, of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself . . .

Jane Austen’s classic novel begins with twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse happily presiding over the social order of the village of Highbury, utterly convinced of both her capability and her right to manage other people’s lives—all for their own good, naturally. Her well-meaning meddling in the affairs of the reserved Jane Fairfax, the handsome Frank Churchill, the foolish Harriet Smith, and the young vicar Mr. Elton, ends with her long-held convictions shattered, her mind awakened to life’s quandries, and her own happiness assured.

Through a dazzling gallery of characters—some pretentious or ridiculous, some admirable and moving, all utterly true—Jane Austen deftly and beautifully probes the deepest ironies of love and life.

Author Bio

Born in 1775, Jane Austen published four of her six novels anonymously. Her work was not widely read until the late nineteenth century, and her fame grew from then on. Known for her wit and sharp insight into social conventions, her novels about love, relationships, and society are more popular year after year. She has earned a place in history as one of the most cherished writers of English literature.
