] Three of JA's other books are given titles in relation to their themes or action: Sense and Sensibility, Prida and Prejudice and Persuasion. JA seems to have called this one "Emma" because she wanted to direct attention at her major character.
] But what would she have called it if she was wanting to follow the lead taken in two previously published books (S&S and P&P) and one that followed (P)?
How about Meddling and Maturity?
] Any thoughts?
