Emma Woodhouse ist eine wohlsituierte junge Dame von 21 Jahren, die mit ihrem Vater in Highbury, einem kleinen Dorf in der Nähe von London lebt. Die Woodhouses gehören zu den ersten Familien im Ort. Das Buch beginnt unmittelbar nach der von Emma arrangierten Verheiratung ihrer Erzieherin, Miss Taylor, die damit zu Mrs. Weston wird und einen gesellschaftlichen Aufstieg macht. Weil Emma die Verehelichung ihrer Erzieherin gelungen ist, sieht sie ihre Fähigkeiten auf genau diesem Gebiet, und sie sinnt nach einem neuen Arrangement, das ihr die Langeweile vertreiben soll. Ein junges Mädchen aus weniger guten Verhältnissen, Harriet Smith, erwählt sie sich als neue Freundin und als zukünftige Braut des Dorfpfarrers Mr. Elton. Sie setzt alle Hebel in Bewegung, um die beiden zusammenzubringen, obwohl ihr Schwippschwager Mr. Knightley ihr dringend von diesem Ansinnen abrät. Als Harriet einen Heiratsantrag von Mr. Knightleys Pächter Mr. Martin erhält, lehnt sie diesen auf Anraten Emmas ab, obwohl sie Mr. Martin im Stillen sehr bewundert. Doch Emma hat ihr Mr. Elton schmackhaft gemacht, und der steht natürlich weit über einem Bauern. Bei der bevorstehenden Weihnachtsfeier hofft Emma, Mr. Elton und Harriet endlich zusammenzubringen. Doch Harriet liegt mit einer schweren Halsentzündung im Bett. Mr. Elton hat nun seiner Herzdame lange genug den Hof gemacht und kommt zur Sache: Auf dem Heimweg ist er allein mit Emma in der Kutsche und macht ihr seinen Heiratsantrag. Emma ist schockiert und weist ihn mit aller Bestimmtheit zurück. Sie erfährt, dass er an Harriet gar nie interessiert war und all seine Artigkeiten allein ihr galten. Sie schwört sich, das Ehestiften bleiben zu lassen, weil sie nun in der misslichen Lage ist, Harriet diese Wendung erklären zu müssen. Mr. Elton seinerseits reist unverzüglich nach Bath, um nach kurzer Zeit verheiratet zurückzukehren: Mrs. Elton ist eine eingebildete junge Dame, die sich gerne selber lobt, aber selbst nur wenige Talente vorzuweisen hat.

With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work. Now, with the BBC's superior adaptation, this captivating story is sure to win the hearts of countless new fans. Beautiful, smart, rich-and single-Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegée, Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected.

»Orwell kennen die meisten Leser nur als düsteren ›Big Brother‹-Visionär - die wenigsten wissen, daß der Autor einige Jahre als Kolonialbeamter in Burma tätig war. Vor diesem Erfahrungshintergrund entfaltet er die Geschichte eines britischen Diplomaten in einem burmesischen Außenposten. Lesenswert vor allem wegen der Schilderungen der Landeskultur - und George Orwells bitterböser Abrechnung mit der britischen Kolonial-Mentalität.«

Male literary friendships are the stuff of legend; think Byron and Shelley, Fitzgerald and Hemingway. But the world’s best-loved female authors are usually mythologized as solitary eccentrics or isolated geniuses. Coauthors and real-life friends Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney prove this wrong, thanks to their discovery of a wealth of surprising collaborations: the friendship between Jane Austen and one of the family servants, playwright Anne Sharp; the daring feminist author Mary Taylor, who shaped the work of Charlotte Brontë; the transatlantic friendship of the seemingly aloof George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe; and Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield, most often portrayed as bitter foes, but who, in fact, enjoyed a complex friendship fired by an underlying erotic charge. Through letters and diaries that have never been published before, A Secret Sisterhood resurrects these forgotten stories of female friendships. They were sometimes scandalous and volatile, sometimes supportive and inspiring, but always—until now—tantalizingly consigned to the shadows.

Jane Austens ironisch-subtiler Roman, in dessen Mittelpunkt die schöne, reiche und kluge Emma Woodhouse steht. Emma , erschienen 1816, ist Jane Austens letztes und reifstes Werk. Wie die meisten Romane der Autorin führt auch dieser in die Welt des soliden englischen Bürgertums zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts. Emma Woodhouse, Tochter aus wohlhabendem Haus, gibt sich mit Vorliebe dem Vergnügen hin, die Geschicke anderer Menschen zu lenken, sie lebt für das „match-making”, das Ehestiften, was zu allerlei Missverständnissen und Komplikationen führt. Ihre enttäuschenden Erwartungen zwingen sie jedoch zu Selbstkritik und tragen zu einem besseren Verständnis ihrer selbst und ihrer Umgebung bei.

Jane Austen’s last completed novel, Persuasion is a delightful social satire of England’s landed gentry and a moving tale of lovers separated by class distinctions. After years apart, unmarried Anne Elliot, the heroine Jane Austen called “almost too good for me,” encounters the dashing naval officer others persuaded her to reject, as he now courts the rash and younger Louisa Musgrove. Superbly drawn, these characters and those of Anne’s prideful father, Sir Walter, the scheming Mrs. Clay, and the duplicitous William Elliot, heir to Kellynch Hall, become luminously alive—so much so that the poet Tennyson, visiting historic Lyme Regis, where a pivotal scene occurs, exclaimed: “Don’t talk to me of the Duke of Monmouth. Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell!” Tender, almost grave, Persuasion offers a glimpse into Jane Austen’s own heart while it magnificently displays the full maturity of her literary power.

A literary discovery: an extraordinary account, in the tradition of The House on Mango Street and Angela’s Ashes, of a Colombian woman’s harrowing childhood This astonishing memoir was hailed as an instant classic when first published in Colombia in 2012, nearly a decade after the death of its author, who was encouraged in her writing by Gabriel García Márquez. Comprised of letters written over the course of thirty years, and translated and introduced by acclaimed writer Daniel Alarcón, it describes in vivid, painterly detail the remarkable courage and limitless imagination of a young girl growing up with nothing. Emma Reyes was an illegitimate child, raised in a windowless room in Bogotá with no water or toilet and only ingenuity to keep her and her sister alive. Abandoned by their mother, she and her sister moved to a Catholic convent housing 150 orphan girls, where they washed pots, ironed and mended laundry, scrubbed floors, cleaned bathrooms, sewed garments and decorative cloths for the nuns—and lived in fear of the Devil. Illiterate and knowing nothing of the outside world, Emma escaped at age nineteen, eventually establishing a career as an artist and befriending the likes of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera as well as European artists and intellectuals. The portrait of her childhood that emerges from this clear-eyed account inspires awe at the stunning early life of a gifted writer whose talent remained hidden for far too long. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,800 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Now in Penguin Classics Deluxe: a treasure trove of Jane Austen's novels Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Here in one volume are her seven great novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Lady Susan. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not romances; ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England’s finest prose stylists of any century. • A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition with French flaps and luxurious packaging • Features the definitive Penguin Classics texts recommended by the Jane Austen Society • New introduction by bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club Karen Joy Fowler For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
