Full of irony, this comedy of manners satirizes the self-deception of vanity. Emma presents a picture of mixed family and social life as did Pride and Prejudice, though mellowed by a riper humor. Emma equals Pride and Prejudice in its rich humor and vivid portraiture of character. It is a never ending delight in human absurdities, which the fascinated listener shares from chapter to chapter.More
This much-loved comedy of manners follows a young woman who seems to have everything but self-awareness. Beautiful, rich, witty, and popular, she thinks just a little too much of herself and her abilities, at least until a series of misadventures prod her toward greater self-discovery. Performer Jill Masters' English-accented voice is soft, refined, and genteel, perfectly suited to the 19th-century setting. In Emma, listeners will enjoy the deft observations, keen insight, and subtle humor for which this deservedly famous author is known.
