"I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like," declared Jane Austen when she wrote Emma.

Jane Austen's Emma, while narrated solely by the author herself, is told exclusively from the title character's point of view (chime in and correct me if there are scenes in which she doesn't take part, however minor) so that Au...

5.0 Emma
