"Emma," perhaps the most technically accomplished of all of Austen s novels, is also, after "Pride and Prejudice, " her most popular one. Its numerous film and television adaptations testify to the world s enduring affection for the headstrong, often misguided Emma Woodhouse and her many romantic schemes. Like the previous volumes in Harvard s celebrated annotated Austen series, "Emma: An Annotated Edition" is a beautiful and illuminating gift edition that will be treasured by readers. Stimulating and helpful annotations appear in the books margins, offering information, definitions, and commentary. In his Introduction, Bharat Tandon suggests several ways to approach the novel, enabling a larger appreciation of its central concerns and accomplishments.
