Adult Nonfiction PR4034 .E5 2012b

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Emma , perhaps the most technically accomplished of all of Austenâe(tm)s novels, is also, after Pride and Prejudice, her most popular one. Its numerous film and television adaptations testify to the worldâe(tm)s enduring affection for the headstrong, often misguided Emma Woodhouse and her many romantic schemes. Like the previous volumes in Harvardâe(tm)s celebrated annotated Austen series, Emma: An Annotated Edition is a beautiful and illuminating gift edition that will be treasured by readers. Stimulating and helpful annotations appear in the bookâe(tm)s margins, offering information, definitions, and commentary. In his Introduction, Bharat Tandon suggests several ways to approach the novel, enabling a larger appreciation of its central concerns and accomplishments. Appearing throughout the book are many illustrations, often in color, which help the reader to better picture the Regency-era world that serves as the stage for Emmaâe(tm)s matchmaking adventures. Whether explaining the intricacies of early nineteenth-century dinner etiquette or speculating on Highburyâe(tm)s deliberately imprecise geographical location, Tandon serves as a delightful and entertaining guide. For those coming to the novel for the first time or those returning to it, Emma: An Annotated Edition offers a valuable portal to Austenâe(tm)s world.
