I’m so excited to discuss chapters nine and ten from Emma. These are some of my favorite scenes: Chapter Nine where Mr. Elton write a charade for Harriet’s riddle book and Chapter Ten where Emma and Harriet visit a poor family and then happen to meet Mr. Elton along their way home.
We’ll be sharing a few selections on the Writer’s Block. If you want to read both chapters in full, you can find them on mollands.net.
The biggest riddle for me in these chapters isn’t found in Harriet’s book. It’s Emma herself. She’s so smart yet so dense, a veritable paradox. We’ll be discussing this conundrum, as well as a few others on the Writer’s Block today and throughout the week. Please come join us!
