Emma Publisher's Summary

A lush recording, featuring a full cast of A-list talent, updates Jane Austen’s masterwork. Emma Thompson, who wrote the Oscar-winning screenplay for Sense and Sensibility, brings her empathetic intelligence and droll wit to her narration of Emma. Thompson’s gifts shine alongside actors including Joanne Froggatt, Aisling Loftus, and Isabella Inchbald, who deftly voices Emma Woodhouse with all her delights and complications. A comedy of manners, which deliciously satirized pomp and pretension, Emma endures as a crowd-pleasing classic. (Oh and did we mention... this 1816 novel inspired the quintessential 1990s rom-com, Clueless?)

“Handsome, clever, and rich” (in Austen’s description), Emma Woodhouse prides herself on being a gifted matchmaker—even if she doesn’t always choose wisely for her friends and almost misses her own Mr. Right. The accomplished cast and sumptuous sound design bring the novel’s iconic characters (noble Mr. Knightley, sly Frank Churchill, gentle Miss Bates, and, of course, the delightful, exasperating Emma) and 19th-century British society to vivid life.
