Jane Austen's Emma by Paula Byrne
Book DescriptionEmma is widely regarded as Jane Austen's most perfectly constructed novel. At once a comedy of misunderstanding, a razor-sharp analysis of the English class-system, a classic tale of moral growth, and a romance that combines sense with sensibility, it has appealed to readers of every generation and critics of every disposition. This sourcebook introduces readers not only to Jane Austen's text, but also to the literary and historical contexts within which the novel was written, and to the many different critical readings that it has generated, from the time of its publication to the twenty-first century. Each extract is fully introduced and analyzed, with a concluding section on recommended editions and further reading to prepare the reader for further study of this incomparable English novel.

Genius of Jane Austen, Paperback (June 2017)
A radical look at Jane Austen as you've never seen her - as a lover of farce, comic theatre and juvenilia. Jane's World celebrates Britain's favourite novelist 200 years after her death and explores why her books make such awesome movies, time after time.
Kick, Paperback (March 2017)

Stressed, Unstressed, Paperback (December 2016)
In this little book is one of the oldest of all remedies for stress: the reading of poetry.
Belle, Paperback (May 2014)» View all books by Paula Byrne
