From Longman's Cultural Editions series, Emma, edited by Frances Ferguson, presents Jane Austen’s novel with illuminations from various contexts, ranging from first reviews, to the entertainments of riddles and charades, the vogue of gothic fiction, the plight of governesses that had their situations compared to slavery, and the economy of English estates.
Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts-cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete text of an important literary work, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track its composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.
The following Longman Cultural Editions are available now: Beowulf, Hamlet (2nd edition), Othello, Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein, Hard Times, Northanger Abbey, King Lear, and The Merchant of Venice.
Titles available for fall include: Wollstonecraft, Emma, and Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2.
