Introduzione di Ornella De Zordo
Traduzione di Pietro Meneghelli
Ereditiera bella e un po’ viziata, giovane e sola, narcisista e intelligente, Emma Woodhouse, pur ritenendo di non doversi sposare, trascorre il suo tempo cercando di combinare matrimoni tra amici e conoscenti. In questo scenario, solo apparentemente tradizionale, si innesta una serie di fraintendimenti tra la protagonista e gli altri personaggi, quasi una “commedia degli equivoci” che costituisce il motore principale dell’intreccio. L’eroina austeniana scambia la realtà con la propria immaginazione manifestando, quasi fosse un don Chisciotte al femminile, una difficoltà comunicativa del tutto moderna. Alla fine, Emma si rivela una satira divertente e spietata di ogni pretesa di razionalità assoluta.

This is a book about math, mirrors and crystal balls, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Village life? Sorta. The lives of the idle rich? I mean, sure, but only partially and incidentally. Romance? Barely. A morality tale of the Education of Young Lady? The young lady stands for and does many Leggi tutto

“I may have lost my heart, but not my self-control.” Personally, I may have lost my self-control, but not my heart. A few years ago I read my first Jane Austen, which was Pride and Prejudice , and I really enjoyed it. I thought Emma couldn't be that bad, it's a very popular classic and its rating is go Leggi tutto
Loved it! Why don't I read more classics?! I'll definitely need to read her other books. The BBC tv show was also adorable!
"A mind lively and at ease, can do with seeing nothing," “Prejudiced! I am not prejudiced.” There aren't that many things out there, giving one a most fulfilling feeling like reading one of Jane Austen novels. While inheriting author's most beautiful style of writing, each of her works appears to have Leggi tutto
I really wanted to like this, but I didn't. Jane Austen and I do not get along. Emma apparently has nothing better to do than try to pair her friend Harriet up with essentially any male that is more wealthy than Robert Martin. This book was so boring. I didn't care about the characters at all. Most
Austen paints a world of excess. She’s just so fucking brilliant. That much so I found the need to swear. The sarcasm is just oozing out of her words. She doesn’t need to tell you her opinions of society: she shows them to you. Simply put, Emma’s farther is a ridiculous prat. There’s no other word f Leggi tutto
3.5 stars rounded up because of the narration. I've noticed a lot of people hate Emma. She's spoiled by her circumstances and self-absorbed in a way that only someone who hasn't really known any sort of hardships can be. And I get why she isn't the heroine that anyone is really rooting for in a seri Leggi tutto
before she began writing this novel, JA said, ‘i am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.’ and sis, if that aint the truth. its not like i hated emma - there are far worse characters out there - its just that she annoyed me to no end. no one likes a inconsiderate/conceited bu Leggi tutto
