The funny and heartwarming story of a young lady whose zeal, snobbishness and
self-satisfaction lead to several errors in judgment. Emma takes Harriet Smith,
a parlour boarder and unknown, under her wing and schemes for advancement
through a good marriage. The attempts at finding Harriet a suitor occupy all of
Emma's time. However, in the midst of the search she settles on a most unlikely
union with her own constant critic: Mr. Knightly. Jane Austen's works have
claimed a renewed popularity and audience with the release of motion pictures
Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Clueless based upon Austen's classic novels.
Emma was originally published in 1816.
