Cal introduction covering the context and publication history of the work and a chronology of Austen's life as well This edition is an indispensable resource for all scholars and readers of Austen. 35 stars rounded up because of the narrationI've noticed a lot of people hate Emma She's spoiled by her circumstances and self absorbed in a way that only someone who hasn't really known any sort of hardships can be And I get why she isn't the heroine that anyone is really rooting for in a serious way Because if the book had ended with Emma alone with her father it wouldn't have really broken my heart But here's the thing I found as I listened to this one It wasn't really Emma that I hated it was the whole stick to your social level thinking that was soacceptedI guess I forgot that society's structure was such an ingrained part of everyone's lives during this time period that the fact that Emma dared to think her friend worthy of a certain man made her into a villainess I think we tend to focus on Robert Martin who for all intents and purposes was a nice dude and Emma discouraging Harriet to accept him because she thought he was socially above him But in reality it wasn't just that Emma who needed to be chastised for sticking her nose into Harriet's love life Although yes she should have been because stop being a nosey bitch EmmaIt was the whole if you marry a farmer we can't be seen together any thingHow was this a thing How was this ever a thingOk ok Take away my disappointment in the casual way humans treated other humans who hadn't been born into the right family and weren't gentlemanly enough Or the way Emma was SO GRATEFUL that Knightly had taken the time to correct her when she didn't behave properlyAnd take away the part where Knightly blushingly confessed that he had probably been in love with her since she was 13 with their 16 year age gap that puts him at 29OHMYFUCKINGGODI get it Timesthey were a bit differentI still made The Face when I heard that one thoughAnyway Take all of that away and I honestly liked this story Emma wasn't a bad person she was just somewhat Clueless as to what the real world was like and oblivious to not only what other people needed but to what she needed as well Speaking of what she needed she needed someone to grab her father by the shoulders give him a good shake and tell him to stop acting like such a pussy Mr Woodhouse was so fucking annoying I mean he's portrayed as a lovable harmless old man butnot really She almost didn't marry because of him And everyone just bowed and scraped and let him get away with his nonsense Except Knightly's brother loved that guy Probably the only normal person in the entire fucking bookIt was good luck that they had a chicken thief in the area that scared her father into wanting a man around the house Ha I really did think that was a cute way to end the storyAnd Knightly really was a super nice guy who deserved a happy ending of his ownMy point is that while it has its problems I wasn't bored to tears with this classic story And I like that Austen wrote about people and the things that made them tick and not the weather or the scenery The issues I had with the book are the same things that make the book a classic In other words it's old And they did shit differently when this was written Not really sure what you can do about that other than be super fucking happy you weren't born back then Nadia May was a wonderful narrator and really made listening to the audiobook a very pleasant experience And as always I suggest audiobooks for those of you who aren't fans of trying to read some of these older books Getting someone to spoon feed you this old stuff can make all the difference in the world

Emma Author Jane AustTuation of the first edition of 1816 the text allows readers to see the novel as Austen's contemporaries first encountered it The volume includes comprehensive explanatory notes an extensive criti. Austen paints a world of excess She’s just so fucking brilliant That much so I found the need to swear The sarcasm is just oozing out of her words She doesn’t need to tell you her opinions of society she shows them to you Simply put Emma’s farther is a ridiculous prat There’s no other word for it He spends his day lounging around eating rich and expensive food and doesn’t bother to exercise his body or mental faculties The thought of visiting his recently departed governess a long time family friend is utterly deplorable I mean he can’t travel that far She lives the great distance of half a mile away; thus the only possibility is to hire a carriage This is clearly the only feasible solution to the problem He is self indulgent and spoilt and in this Austen ushers in the origins of her heroineThankfully Emma has a degree of sense She is still a little spoilt; she still has a great deal to learn but she isn’t her farther In addition the departure of her governess is an agreeable experience She has empathy Whilst she misses her friend and her teacher she is genuinely happy for her Unlike her farther seeing her friend enter a love filled marriage is an occasion for joy and celebration even if she dearly misses her company So from very early on Austen’s heroine is characterised as spoilt her upbringing demands it so but she is not without sense or a full awakening she clearly has the capabilities of leading a successful life rather than one that resembles the useless vegetable state of her farther She is a strong woman She spends her days helping her new friend Harriet; she endeavours to find her the perfect husband and sets about trying to improve her character But through this and her own naivety Emma never considers her own youth and that she too is in need of some degree of improvement Thus sweeps in the straight shooter the frank speaking Mr Knightley Emma has many reading lists who doesn’t but she never bothers to complete them; she never finishes her own schedule her own plans She considers herself a true authority on marriage on matchmaking but her experience her credentials come from one fluke partnership Her young age breeds arrogant ignorance Because she has created one healthy marriage she immediately thinks she knows what love is about she thinks she will succeed again And as a result she makes a series of terrible mistakes Ones Mr Knightley is only too generous to point out And this is Emma’s learning curve Such irony “Were I to fall in love indeed it would be a different thing; but I have never been in love ; it is not my way or my nature; and I do not think I ever shall” Through the course of the plot she truly discovers herself Austen’s heroines are freuently deluded and Emma is deluded by her own will She has no idea what love is and in her well meant advice she freuently mistakes simple things such as gratitude and simple kindness as romantic interest Austen being the wonderfully comic writer that she is exploits this silly little misconception for the entire plot Emma does finally get over herself By the end she understands the feelings that are ready to burst forth from her own chest Emma’s excess is her indulgence in her own opinion; she naively believes herself experienced when in reality she is juvenile arrogant self absorbed but full of real potential as a human being she can do some good in this world and live for others What she needed to do and what Mr Knightly so desperately wanted to see was for her to grow up And she does happiness reigns supreme “Men of sense whatever you may choose to say do not want silly wives” I gave this five stars but is it as enjoyable as other Austen’s Simply put it’s not This lacked a plot driver This wasn’t heading towards a clear and well defined fulfilment or resolution I would certainly and whole heartedly only recommend reading this one if you already enjoy Austen’s style Whilst this does display Austen’s rapier wit in full force the lack of narrative progress will scare most readers away This has a great deal going for it though it is terribly slow at points If you’re not already an Austen lover you should go read something else For me though I’m going to finally being reading Pride and Prejudice soon It will be very interesting to compare it to Persuasion and see which is the best
