“Time will generally lessen the interest of every attachment not within the daily circle.” Emma Woodhouse, a headstrong, beautiful and witty twenty-year-old resident of the village of Highbury, is overconfident about her matchmaking skills. Conjuring successful love matches is an art she thinks she has mastered—especially after her self-proclaimed accomplishment at finding Miss Taylor, her governess, a suitable partner in Mr. Weston, a village Widower next, she takes it upon herself to find a perfect match for her friend Harriet Smith. She even convinces her to refuse the proposal of Robert Martin, a well-to-do farmer. While Harriet cannot deny her feelings for Mr. Martin, Emma wishes her friend to be a gentleman wife. Mr. Knightley, Emma’s brother-in-law, observes Emma’s matchmaking efforts and is contemptuous of her meddling. What follows in this circuit of misconstrued romances is a series of conflicts, misunderstandings and suspicions. Is Emma overestimating her ability as a matchmaker or Mr. Knightley being unnecessarily critical of her motive? Emma (1815) was Jane Austen last novel to be completed and published during her lifetime.

Jane Austen

Jane Austen was an English novelist, known for her six novels that critiqued the novels of sensibility of the 18th century. These novels also represent the transition to 19th-century literary realism. These famous novels are Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park ( 1814), and Emma (1816). She also wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818.
