Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly
content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage.
Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic
lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend
Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee
Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have
consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming
heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, 'Emma'
is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

"Jane Austen is my favorite author! ... Shut up in measureless content, I greet her by the name of most kind hostess, while criticism slumbers." EM Forster"
