Publisher's Description

An enchanting comedy of errors, Emma remains a classic two centuries after it was first published.

Emma Woodhouse is a privileged young woman whose greatest pleasure in life lies in matchmaking for anyone but herself. Written, by Austen’s own admission, as "a heroine whom no one but myself will much like," Emma’s charm and wit exist in constant tension with her capacity for selfishness and vanity. 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.

Both a discerning look at the strictures of Regency England and an enchanting comedy of errors, Emma remains a classic two centuries since it was first published.

This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Author Bio

Jane Austen (1775–1817) was an English novelist known for her fiction set among England’s landed gentry. She was the seventh of eight children and was educated mostly at home in Hampshire. Her best-known works include Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma. Although her novels, all of which were published anonymously, did not bring her fame during her lifetime, she is now one of the most widely read writers in the English language. 

Editorial Reviews

"One of the finest novels in the English language . . . Possibly Jane Austen’s most thought-provoking and interesting book." —Alexander McCall Smith

"Emma herself is endlessly fascinating, a woman to whom the reader returns again and again for the seductive intimacy of her thoughts. . . . You can object that Emma is a lady and a snob, but she also makes a timeless appeal to the reader’s better nature." —The Guardian
