Jane Austen: Emma


“Emma has always been among the most popular of Jane Austen’s novels…with its good-humored wit, its delightful heroines, its insights, and its splendid denouement.”

Sally Hirschorn

Emma has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written.  

It reveals the astounding range, subtlety, artistry, and depth of thought of a true literary colossus, Jane Austen.

Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1813.

* Contains extended historical context and a critical essay: By A Lady: A Cultural and Historical Perspective of Jane Austen, by Elizabeth Keegan Birdsong.

JANE AUSTEN (1775-1817), one of the greatest English authors, transformed the art of fiction. Author of numerous novels, including Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma, she is considered to be a central figure in the development of the modern novel.
