Signet Classics Student Scholarship Essay Contest

<p>Has anyone else applied for this scholarship? I really enjoyed writing about "Emma", it was an easy book to write about. I wrote on topic 4, the one about how Emma's "realizations" jolt her out of complacency. I think I had an original idea for my essay. I formed my opinions before I read anybody else's opinions or criticisms of Emma, so that my opinions couldn't be influenced by anybody else. I did read C.S. Lewis' essay on Jane Austen's books in general beforehand. I found his points to be really helpful. If anyone else applied, what topic did you write on? What did you think about the book?</p>

<p>Anyone... ?</p>

<p>Thanks for mentioning it! I'm definitely looking into it now!!</p>

<p>It is a shame, in a way, that no one else has applied. On the other hand, maybe this increases my chances of winning... lol.</p>
