In Emma the author herself voices a warning to her readers: 'Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.'
This course will consider Jane Austen's employment of disguises and misunderstandings within the novel and explore the enigma of Emma's popularity as a heroine. Other sessions will focus on the biographical background to the writing of the novel, the geographical and social setting, the problems facing single women, the intrigues and deceptions practised by some of the characters, and the original style in which the text is written.
