“Handsome, clever and rich” was how Jane Austen introduced Emma Woodhouse to readers in 1815. Over the last two centuries, she has been continously reimagined and reinvented.

Inspired by the 2020 film adaptation, this display explores how Emma has been shaped by various portrayals, from illustration and book covers, to plays and film adaptations.
