Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich.

Emma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of romance. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters. Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." - Publisher Info
