Emma-ch38 (III-2)



Français : Seconde illustration pour le chapitre 2 du tome 3 : au cours du bal organisé à la demande de Franck Churchill à l'auberge de « La Couronne », Emma admire la prestance de Mr Knighley, se désolant qu'il reste à l'écart des danseurs.English: Second plate for Macmillan's edition of Emma (Jane Austen's novel): "Emma was more disturbed by Mr. Knightley's not dancing, than by any thing else. There he was, among the standers-by, where he ought not to be; he ought to be dancing, -- not classing himself with the husbands, and fathers, and whist-players, who were pretending to feel an interest in the dance till their rubbers were made up, -- so young as he looked! He could not have appeared to greater advantage perhaps any where, than where he had placed himself. His tall, firm, upright figure, among the bulky forms and stooping shoulders of the elderly men, was such as Emma felt must draw every body's eyes".

Jane Austen (1775—1817), the world renowned English author, completed just six works during her time and yet manages to command a legion of fans around the world. Her timeless stories have been turned into a plethora of movies, television shows, and modern adaptations in addition to being translated into multiple languages to cross cultural boundaries. Today she remains as popular as ever and is revered as much as any literary figure in the history of the English language.
