9780140861068: Emma (Penguin Classics)

Emma Woodhouse dominates this novel as she believed herself to dominate her little world of Highbury. Her progress through the mismanagement of other people's affairs to the crisis and resolution of her own, is a whole comedy of self-deceit and self-discovery.

Product Description:

In this sparkling comedy of self-deceit and self-discovery, Emma's forays into the matchmaking arena bring her up sharply against the follies of her egotism and selfishness.

Review:

"I should like to see Emma in love, and in some doubt of return; it would do her good," remarks one of Jane Austen's characters in Emma.

Quick-witted, beautiful, headstrong and rich, Emma Woodhouse is inordinately fond of match-making select inhabitants of the village of Highbury, yet aloof and oblivious as to the question of whom she herself might marry. This paradox multiplies the intrigues and sparkling ironies of Jane Austen's masterpiece, her comedy of a sentimental education through which Emma discovers a capacity for love and marriage.
