Jane Austen's comedy of manners and belated maturity
during the Regency Period of England's Georgian Era has inspired many
feature films, television mini-series, and stage-plays. This is no
doubt due to its rich characterizations, realistic and eccentric social
depictions, delightful twists of plot, comical setbacks and
psychological revelations. Though Pride and Prejudice is considered Austen's greatest literary triumph, many critics believe Emma is the most fun.
