    Emma is clever, rich, beautiful and sees no need for marriage. An irrepressible matchmaker, she loves interfering in the romantic lives of others, until her matchmaking plans unravel, with consequences that she never expected.

    Jane Austen's novel of youthful exuberance, with its imperfect but charming heroine, is often seen as her most flawless work.

Jane Austen, the daughter of a clergyman, was born in Hampshire in 1775, and later lived in Bath and the village of Chawton. 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.
