I may have lost my heart, but not my self-control.” Most interesting of all Jane Austen's heroines, Emma is the most flawed, the most infuriating and the most endearing. With a wisp of gentle satire on provincial balls and drawing rooms, Emma wanders along the way encountering the sweet Harriet Smith, the chatty Miss Bates, and her absurd father Mr. Woodhouse. Resisting to romance of all kinds, she fails to recognize her own feelings. Wrapped in genteel comedy of manners, the novel encapsulates fascinating episodes of Emma’s meddling and her over-estimation as a matchmaker garnished in Austen’s delicious irony, thus rightly entitling Jane Austen as ‘Prose Shakespeare’.
