“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence. ... The real evils of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.”

Emma {2009} What I love most about the 2009 Emma is that she and Harriet act exactly as I would imagine two young women, just approaching adulthood, would act, even in the 21st century. They are giggly and goofy and they make mistakes and take the wrong advice, even if its their own. They are imperfect, and that is the beauty of Jane Austen.

Dress

1812 - 1815 young girl's gown - the sleeves have a lot of youth to their style, but the embroidery is very mature in its style. A lovely piece all around.

Jane Austen on Emma " I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like" why do I like Emma's character so much then? What does that say about me?
