About this product
- DescriptionThis Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition celebrates 200 years of Austen's beloved vel. With a beautiful cover designed by illustrator Dadu Shin and comprehensive tes sourced from the Jane Austen Collection, this is an edition to be treasured by students and collectors alike. 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. Beautiful, clever, rich-and single-Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she igres the warnings of her good friend Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected.

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.
