Informationen zum Autor Jane Austen, the daughter of a clergyman, was born in Hampshire in 1775, and later lived in Bath and the village of Chawton. As a child and teenager, she wrote brilliantly witty stories for her family's amusement, as well as a novella, Lady Susan . Her first published novel was Sense and Sensibility , which appeared in 1811 and was soon followed by Pride and Prejudice , Mansfield Park and Emma . Austen died in 1817, and Persuasion and Northanger Abbey were published posthumously in 1818. Klappentext With an essay by David Lodge. 'I never have been in love; it is not my way! or my nature; and I do not think I ever shall' 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 protégée 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. The Penguin English Library - 100 paperbacks of the best fiction written in English! from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War. Zusammenfassung 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.
