"Great books of the Western World" did not select works by very many Woman authors. Jane Austen was one of those few, and "Emma" was the work that was included. (I have no idea whether more recent iterations of the "Great books" canon have kept this title. Nonetheless, William F Buckley derided the inclusion of anything by Austen)
I do look forward to seeing this "Emma," but I'm even more interested in seeing Dev Patel as the title character in "David Copperfield."
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "Emma" set in the early 19th century? "Barry Lyndon was 18th century. I know,I know, to millennials anything from the time of Louis XIV through to Louisa May Alcott would seem like the same period.
