Description

Emma, the comic and sharply observed story of young Emma Woodhouse's education in life, is regarded by many as Jane Austen's most perfect novel. Introduced to the reader as "handsome, clever, and rich," Emma Woodhouse is also a spoiled, meddling matchmaker—Austen's most flawed, and possibly most endearing heroine. Her fourth published novel, and the last to appear before her death, this lively comedy of manners is the work of an incisive writer at the height of her powers. Jane Austen is a renowned Regency novelist. Her other works include Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. Andrew Lycett is the author of Dylan Thomas: A New Life, Ian Fleming, and The Man Who Created Sherlock Holmes.
