Cross posted at This Insignificant Cinder I may have lost my heart, but not my self control Personally, I may have lost my self control, but not my heart.
My motivation to read this book stemmed from J.
K Rowling stating that this was one of her favourite books 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 popular classic and its rating is good To be honest, it s not bad, exactly, but the fact that it took me one whole month to get through it says a lot I had lots and lots of problems with this novel.
1 EmmaSuch a vain and arrogant main character I mean, I know she is supposed to be an unlikeable character for literary reasons But that doesn t make it any easier.
2 Miss BatesWhy bother wasting so much ink and paper on nonsense Numerous pages of nonsense.
3 They way people areWait Let me guess Th 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 for it He spends his day lounging around eating rich and expensive food and doesn t bother to exercise his body or mental faculties The thought of visiting his recently departed governess, a long time family friend, is utterly deplorable I mean, he can t travel that far She lives the great distance of half a mile away thus, the only possibility is to hire a carriage This isclearlythe only feasible solution to the problem He is self indulgent and spoilt, and in this Austen ushers in the origins of her heroine.
Thankfully, Emma has a degree of sense She Jane Austen famously wrote I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like My initial take Truer words, Jane Truer words Emma is wealthy and beautiful, the queen bee of society in her town, and boss of her household since her father is a hand wringing worrywart, almost paralyzed by his fears She s prideful, self satisfied and convinced she knows best, not just for herself but for pretty much everyone in her circle When Emma decides she s got a gift for matchmaking, trouble soon follows.
On reread, I realized that Emma is a better character than I previously gave her credit for of course, Mrs Elton makes any other woman look like a saint She s intelligent and essentially kindhearted, she has almost endless patience with her exasperating father, and she s not so proud that she isn t able to learn from her mistakes view spoiler and e My dear Jane Austen, I hope you don t mind that I write to you, expressing my gratitude for your brilliant handling of words And as the post office is an object of interest and admiration in your novel Emma , I thought a letter would be the adequate way of communicating my thoughts.
I must start by confessing that I don t like your heroine at all Obviously, this sounds like a harsh judgment on a classic character like Emma Woodhouse, and I wouldn t have dared to be as honest with you as I am, had I not been convinced that you dislike her eventhan I do For I can at least accept some of her conceited ignorance as a direct effect of the prejudice of her era, whereas you had to deal with her as a contemporary It hardly helped at all that you gave her an antagonist in Mrs Elton who exceeded Emma s vanity and narcissism.
I struggle to find anything justifiable in the lifestyle dis ã Emma ↠´ 936 Emma, Jane AustenEmma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance The story takes place in the fictional village of High bury and the surrounding estates of Hart field, Randalls, and Donwell Abbey and involves the relationships among individuals in those locations consisting of 3 or 4 families in a country village The novel was first published in December 1815 while the author was alive, with its title page listing a publication date of 1816 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 and depicts issues of marriage, gender, age, and social status 2010 1362 208 1388 560 1392 1395 469 1392 1395 568 1391 60 1390 104 1396 459 1396 I must begin by stating that I may be utterly biased here Emma is the novel that introduced me to the treasure that are Jane Austen s masterpieces I read it when I was fourteen, and fell in love with it right there and then People often tend to mention that Emma Woodhouse is the least likeable heroine Jane Austen has created It may be so, since she is rather headstrong, spoiled and with a strong tendency to plan other people s lives, without giving a second thought to all possible consequences, secluded in the protection of Hartfield, her house, her bubble It may be so but we should not forget that she has no siblings, and an onlychild,often than not, believes that the world probably revolves around him her And I am an onlychild, so don t judge me I recently revisited Emma s world for a group discussion, and I once again found myself 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 manyimportant things than that These things provide the base of the novel, the initial bolt of fabric, the first few lines of a drawing that set the limits of the author to writing about these thousand things rather than the other million things that lie outside those lines They are the melody to which the symphony will return again and again, but with variations so you ll never quite hear it again with perfect simplicity You just have to recognize them to be able to understand the rest of the piece And that is all The melody is never the point the point is everything tha Okay, when I first started the book and was reading how Emma was taking happiness away from Harriet Smith by telling her that Mr Martin wasn t good enough for her I didn t like Emma at all Now I can understand how Emma only wanted to do good by Harriet and that was how it was back in those days But, as Mr Knightely pointed out, Harriet was not from some wealthy family and Emma was doing the wrong thing in trying to find her a great husband Mr Knightley went to the trouble to help Mr Martin in how to go about asking for Harriet s hand in marriage and Emma shut that down But lets just say it all worked out in the end Emma went on a journey of trying to get people together She wanted to bring people together and have them all married off It seemed that it always back fired Bless her heart for trying She really was just trying to do good even though some of her thoughts and actions w
