Sites about Vanity Fair

by William Makepeace Thackeray

The story of two young women — one humble, the other scheming and social-climbing–who meet in school and embark on their own lives. As their fortunes rise and fall, Thackeray satirizes the values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper class.

Characters: Becky Sharp, Rawdon Crawley, Amelia Sedley, William Dobbin

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”.
