Romantic Couples in Literature

10 of 12
Emma

Emma and Knightley
Emma,
by Jane Austen


Austen once remarked that she created Emma as a character that no one would like but herself. Contrary to the author's intentions, and despite Emma's numerous flaws, the character is a most appealing and pleasing young woman. Emma's appeal is particularly noted by her neighbor and brother-in law, Mr. Knightley, who secretly pines for her. Vowing never to marry, Emma is content instead to play matchmaker -- to fruitless and hilarious results. She nonetheless finds herself a surprising and loving mate in her close friend, George Knightley.

Next: Odysseus and Penelope
The Odyssey,
by Homer
