Emma is Austen's most technically accomplished novel.

The full implications of its hidden plot are only revealed by a second reading. Presented here for the first time with the spelling and the punctuation of the first edition of 1816, the text allows readers to see the novel as Austen's contemporaries first encountered it.

The volume includes comprehensive explanatory notes, an extensive critical introduction covering the context and publication history of the work, and a chronology of Austen's life as well.

This edition is an indispensable resource for all scholars and readers of Austen.

  • The first fully annotated scholarly edition of Austen's complete works
  • Based on authoritative texts edited by senior scholars
  • Emma is Austen's most technically accomplished novel.

"Jane Austen deserves, and here gets, the reward of other people's skillful work on her little bit of ivory, two inches wide... The Cambridge Edition justifies its claim to the 'the first ever scholarly edition of the works of Jane Austen', and is a fine tribute to her for the twenty-first century." -Jane Austen Society Newsletter "scrupulous text and copious annotations" JASNA News
