Emma is rightly seen as one of Jane Austen's greatest novels. Through the innovative and wonderfully flexible use of what is now called free indirect speech, she enables us to see the world through her wayward heroine's eyes and to understand her faults and share her delusions. In telling the story of how Emma finally comes to know her own heart, Austen creates a world which seems as intense and as real as the one we inhabit. In making us understand Emma's limitations, she brings us to a greater awareness of our own.
