Learn what makes Emma a literary classic with background essays from the Clawton House Library:

In more recent times, however, Emma has been recognized as the best example of Jane Austen's technical perfection — it shows an author at the height of her literary skills. As an example of a novel that can be read and reread while finding something new in each rereading, Emma is hard to beat. It should certainly be included in any list of reading for a twenty-first century wannabe heroine or hero!

Make this timeless classic relevant to your 21st Century learners and share highlights from the website, from the twitter feed, and comments from viewers across the United States right into your literary classroom discussion. Emma offers messages for today just as she did all those years ago when first imagined by Jane Austen.
