Emma Woodhouse may be Austen’s most infuriating heroine, but her doomed attempts at matchmaking take place against a background of fascinating social history. Tutor Judith Hedley looks at the novel itself in detail, but also at contemporary issues such as food, manners, the class system and women’s education – all explored with Austen’s invariable wit and wisdom.
