Jane Austen's beloved comedic novel is now available in a revised and updated Norton Critical Edition.

The text of this Norton Critical Edition of Emma is based on the 1816 edition published by John Murray. George Justice has lightly and judiciously emended the text for faithfulness and clarity. The novel is accompanied by detailed explanatory annotations as well as facsimiles of the 1816 title and dedication pages.

"Backgrounds" collects a wealth of source material, much of it new to the Fourth Edition. New material includes Austen's correspondence with her publisher about the business of writing, which reveals Austen's view of her own writing and career. In addition, there are two sets of verses referenced in Emma, "Kitty, A Fair But Frozen Maid" and "Robin Adair", as well as responses (1815-1950) to Austen and her writing from, among others, Charlotte Brontd, Juliet Pollock, Virginia Woolf, D.W. Harding, and Edmund Wilson.

"Reviews and Criticism" includes twelve major interpretations of the novel, nine of them new to the Fourth Edition. New contributors include Jan Fergus, Patricia Meyer Spacks, Tony Tanner, Maaja Stewart, D.A. Miller, Emily Auerbach, Gabrielle D. V. White, Richard Jenykns, and David Monaghan.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
