about

By Jane Austen is a novel about the perils of misconstrued romance. The novel was first published in December 1815. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively ‘comedy of manners’ among her characters.
Emma Woodhouse is the first Austen heroine with no financial concerns, which, she declares to the naive Miss Smith, is the reason that she has no inducement to marry. This is a great departure from Austen’s other novels, in which the quest for marriage and financial security are often important themes in the stories. Emma’s ample financial resources put her in a much more priviledged position than the heroines of Austen’s earlier works, such as Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Jane Fairfax’s prospects, in contrast, are bleak.
Jane Austen has the extreme art of interweaving such issues in a plot which was written during the period of Napoleonic wars with England, exposing the hypocrisy of upper and middle class living. She always has a sure message to convey when things settle down.
