Sites about Vanity Fair

Critical sites about Vanity Fair
- Vanity Fair, by William Makepeace Thackeray
- This highly complimentary review asserts that “Vanity Fair, though it does not include the whole extent of Thackeray’s genius, is the most vigorous exhibition of its leading characteristics. In freshness of feeling, elasticity of movement, and unity of aim, it is favorably distinguished from its successors….” The review goes on to praise the novel’s style, characterizations, and its “raciness”.
