Emma Audiobook CD Set
Listen to a sample chapter of Emma Audiobook!
Emma Woodhouse, aged 20 at the start of the novel, is a young, beautiful, witty, and privileged woman in Regency England. She sadly is also rather spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities, is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people’s lives, and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray. Her indulgent father and lack of a mother have left her spoiled and used to getting her own way. Emma’s only true critic and voice of reason is Mr. Knightley, a gentleman whose opinion she values greatly, and who cares deeply for her, but whose affection she does not see, while seeking to play matchmaker in the lives of others. She delights in meddling in the romantic affairs of everyone around her, thinking celibacy is a privilege she alone can enjoy, by virtue of her social standing. Happily, in the end, Emma is forced to acknowledge both her own lack of proper insight into the motives of others, and admit her need for a companion who can challenge her to become a better woman.
