Manga Classics brings Jane Austen's classic tale of youthful folly and romantic exuberance to a modern audience with this beautiful new manga adaptation of Emma. When her former governess finds happiness as the bride of a local widower, the brilliant and beautiful Emma Woodhouse -- one of Jane Austen's immortal creations -- flatters herself that she alone has secured the marriage and that she possesses a special talent for bringing lovers together. The young heiress next busies herself with finding a suitable husband for her friend and prot g , Harriet Smith, setting off an entertaining sequence of comic mishaps and misunderstanding in this sparkling comedy of English- village romance. Beneath its considerable wit, the novel is also the story of a young woman's progress toward self-understanding.
-The cover is a real invitation to the work, showing well the cupid slope of Emma and all the romanticism of the plot, with hearts, flowers, aura and the typical arch and arrow of the mythical character. Recommended for everyone, especially for those who like this genre and for those who have difficulty reading the original work because of all the formalism of writing.- - 5 Stars! NetGalley.com
