By Jane Austen
Emma Woodhouse is a prosperous, beautiful, and punctiliously self-deluded younger lady who has "lived on the earth with little or no to misery or vex her."
Jane Austen workouts her flavor for slicing social commentary and her expertise for making an investment likely trivial occasions with profound ethical importance as Emma traverses a steady satire of provincial balls and drawing rooms, alongside the way in which encountering the candy Harriet Smith, the chatty and tedious pass over Bates, and her absurd father Mr. Woodhouse–a memorable gallery of Austen's best personages. considering herself impervious to romance of any sort, Emma attempts to rearrange a filthy rich marriage for terrible Harriet, yet refuses to acknowledge her personal emotions for the gallant Mr. Knightley. What ensues is a pleasant sequence of scheming escapades within which each social machination and little bit of "tittle-tattle" is steeped in Austen's scrumptious irony. eventually, Emma discovers that "Perfect happiness, even in reminiscence, isn't really common."
Virginia Woolf referred to as Jane Austen "the such a lot excellent artist between women," and Emma Woodhouse is arguably her such a lot ideal construction. even though Austen came across her heroine to be somebody whom "no one yet myself will a lot like," Emma is her so much cleverly woven, riotously comedic, and interesting novel of manners.
