Everything You Need To Know About ‘EMMA’ by Jane Austen

April 3, 2024

If you’re here it’s probably because you’re a high school student looking to continue your streak of ‘completed book assignments without reading the book’.

That’s great.

AND so here is everything you need to know about “Emma” by Jane Austen.

Essentially this girl Emma, Emma Woodhouse, lives in a village called Highbury. On the surface she appears to be a basic blond; smart, charming, and pretty well-off. But there’s more to this cookie.


Emma is convinced she’d be a good match maker. How did she come to this notion? Well considering she’s a basic blond she thought, “if I did it once with the old governess, Miss Taylor and this guy Mr. Weston. then surely I can do it again.”

And this is where history was born, the very first wing-woman. Under her wing was a girl named harriet. [not to be confused with harriet tubman – rest in peace]

Harriet is a bigger blond than Emma. Totally clueless – hopeless romantic.

The perfect… target. For Emmas matchmaking magnificence. Or maleficence?


Emma finds a man for Harriet, the local vicar, Mr. Elton.

The plot thickens.

Love is in the air.

Like cherry blossom season.

Or season 9 of the Bachelor.


Mr . Elton doesn’t love Harriet.

He’s into Emma.


This is what happens when you try to steal cupids job.

He shoots you in the back.

There is a voice of reason.

A shinning knight..ley.

Mr. Knightly tries to reason with Emma and slowly [very slowly] but surely, Emma starts to realize her mistakes and grows as a person. [awwww]


And Emma figures shes in love with Mr. Knightley.

They sort out their feelings with a fine tooth comb and come to reason their so good at love they should be wed forever.

So they get married.

Oh, and Harriet marries some random named Mr. Martin.

At THE END of a very complex love story “Emma is a truly great novel. Jane Austen was ahead of her time with insights into romance and the beauty of self discovery. Which I hear is all the rage these days.

If you decide to read “Emma” for yourself, consider this beautiful edition by Campbell Classics.

Ta ta,

for now.

[Good luck on your assignment.]
