"Emma" is one of the famous novels by Jane Austen and was first published in 1816. ------ Unlike most of the other female protagonists in Austenīs novels the heroine Emma Woodhouse shows no real romantic interest in men. Instead of getting involved into a relationship herself she prefers meddling in other peopleīs lives. She is absolutely self-satisfied, although the conclusions of her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray. But finally, it comes to her self-revelation concerning her own true affections. ------ "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." (Jane Austen) ------ "Emma" is one of the best-loved and essential classics in English literature. Like Austenīs other novels it retains a fascination for modern readers, and has been adapted for several films as well as for a long list of dramatic plays. Some critics place this novel even higher than Austenīs masterpiece "Pride and Prejudice". ------ This is the allowance edition. It is set in smaller print than apebookīs other editions of the same title in order to reduce the price.
