Jane Austen (16 December 1775 - 18 July 1817) was an English
novelist whose works include Sense and Sensibility, Pride and
Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion.
Her biting social commentary and masterful use of both free
indirect speech and irony eventually made Austen one of the most
influential and honored novelists in English Literature. Source:
<b>Emma</b><i>,</i> first published in 1816, was written when Jane Austen was at the height of her powers. In a novel remarkable for its sparkling wit and modernity, Austen presents readers with two of literature’s greatest comic creations—the eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and that quintessential bore, Miss Bates. Here, too, we have what may well be Jane Austen’s most profound characterization: the witty, imaginative, self-deluded Emma, a heroine the author declared “no one but myself will much like,” but who has been much loved by generations of readers. Delightfully funny, full of rich irony, <b>Emma</b> is regarded as one of Jane Austen’s finest achievements.
