Summary: Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her." So begins Jane Austen's comic masterpiece Emma. In Emmma, Austen's prose brilliantly elevates, in the words of Virginia Woolf, "the trivialities of day-to-day existence, of parties, picnics, and country dances" of ea
