DetailsEmma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance.The novel was first published in December 1815.As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: JEROME K JEROME. Jerome wrote Three Men in a Boat (1888) the phenomenally successful novel that was to become both a curse and a blessing. Although it catapulted him to literary stardom, most reviewers refused to take his subsequent work seriously, and his lower-middle-class status was ridiculed by many.Despite being predominately famous for one book, Jerome wrote eight novels, fifteen collections of sketches and short stories, two autobiographical works, over thirty plays, and an uncalculable number of journal articles. A two-year stay in Germany inspired Three Men on the Bummel (1900), a sequel to Three Men in a Boat.Undaunted, he continued writing , including the autobiographical novel Paul Kelver (1902) and a series of plays, the most successful being The Passing of the Third Floor Back (1908). His 1919 novel All Roads Lead to Calvary demonises a crowd that lynches a conscientious objector, and Anthony John (1921) explores his move towards socialism. This attempt to redefine himself as an author of political fiction was futile, and Jerome was described as a typical humourist of the eighties in his Times obituary, nearly forth years after the publication of Three Men in a Boat.
