Jane Austen "Emma"
The main thing that made me think after reading “Emma” is how women are actually different from men. It seems like we are coming from two totally uneven planets indeed. Starting with how all the mankind in this book look on women as they always have to protect and defend them, but woman at the same time don’t look after their selves and often make mistakes. Jane Austin has successfully shown how women in her time are addicted to men and marriage. I would say that it is 19th centuries classic, because of its style – romantic and airily, but realistic at the same time. The book is going to be very interesting for people, who love romantic comedies. It lets us travel back in time where people weren’t thinking about time rush. They didn’t try to complicate their life and took every mistake easier, as oppose to our time generation. Although, some parts of “Emma” can be compared to nowadays. For example, the relationships between parents and their children. The willing to teach others and point on their mistakes or habits. The most understanding but unfixable features – jealousy, unforgiveness, and most of all – dividing all the surrounded civility in estates. In almost 3 centuries nothing has changed in our behavior, our manners and trends.
The tempers of all the characters are particulary thought through. Nobody is similar. Even the minor characters have some kind of quality that differentiates him from others. That is the main advantage of the story.
Jane Austen has also excellently described the nature, environment, style and proprieties of her time. She shows how every person is feeling and thinking at the moment. How many ideas, how many anger and love at the same moment are going through our brain in a little period of time. The language of the novel is completely different from American or now time English english. Every dialogue, every description is written with politeness and accuracy. At the start it is sometimes hard to understand the meaning of the sentence, but if you read in to the story, everything is clear and certain. And the quality that I always search for in a book is mysteriousness. “Emma” is a perfect example of a novel where the essence of all the things that happen in the start come clear only in the end. That makes the reader be lost in thoughts and makes him go back in his memories to the incipient happenings. This means that the author had the book already written in her mind from the beginning until the end. Only then she has put it on the paper.
“Emma” is an art-piece that I think anybody could enjoy. This book has so many levels that it’s suitable for every generation in every age.
