Emma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. The novel was first published in December 1815.

Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich."

Short Summary: Emma Woodhouse, aged 20 at the start of the novel, is a young, beautiful, witty, and privileged woman in Regency England.

Not for her, but for those she ‘helps’ along. Emma contrasts with Austen’s other novels by removing the financial imperative from the lead character; she is not obliged to marry out of concern for her security. Yet in removing this motivation, Austen doesn’t provide Emma with much sense of her own affections and when her fate is resolved, it comes about just as more by happenstance than design. A contrast indeed from her own meddling.< Less
