Extra info for Emma by Jane Austen
But it strikes me that his manners are softer than they used to be. ' we recognise this, at any rate on a second reading, as a characteristically false deduction on Emma's part: the leap from 'either of us' to 'must be to please you' is unjustified and, as it later turns out, untrue , and the speech shows Emma in the actual process of spinning fantasy. Two chapters later, 47 when Emma is drawing a portrait of Harriet, we read : . there was no doing anything with Mr Elton fidgetting behind her and watching every touch.
At this point we must confront the less admirable, and even objectionable, aspects of Emma's character - aspects of which Jane Austen was well aware, and which indeed she stresses. When she began work on Emma she wrote in a letter that she was 'going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like'. Thisperhaps overstates the case, as it turned out; but it is certainly true that Emma has had many critics, and it looks as though Jane Austen - who was perfectly capable of creating a heroine such as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, concerning whose attractiveness we can have no reservations - was deliberately setting herself an artistic problem.
Emma has at least one important redeeming feature: her devotion to her father. He is a tiresome and demanding old man, and we might hardly be inclined to blame her if she occasionally lacked patience with him. But she never does : her consideration for him, from start to finish , is admirably unselfish. To this we must add that she is prepared to acknowledge when she is in the wrong , and that, despite her faults (which he is the first to point out) she is obviously admired and loved by Mr Knightley, who is clearly a good judge of character.
