Thackery’s rapier-sharp wit depicts an unforgettably entertaining portrait of 19th century London in Vanity Fair. Shunned for her lack of money and destined to live a dull life as a governess, Becky Sharp decides to take her fate in her own hands before it’s too late. Using her wit, charm, and beauty, Becky aims straight for the upper crust of society, but she can’t do it alone. Entangled in her tenacious web are a gallery of colorful characters, among them the sweet Amelia Sedley, the empty-headed Rawdon Crawly, his conservative and cold brother Pitt, and everyone’s favorite wealthy aunt, Matilda Crawley. The “novel without a hero” gives readers one perfectly imperfect character after another and is a must-read for fans of satire. Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, this Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.

After leaving school, Becky stays with Emmy, who is a good-natured, simple-minded, young girl, of a wealthy London family. There, Becky meets the dashing and self-obsessed Captain George Osborne (Amelia's betrothed) and Amelia's brother Joseph Sedley, a clumsy and vainglorious but rich civil servant home from the East India Company. Hoping to marry Sedley, the richest young man she has met, Becky entices him, but she fails. George Osborne's friend Captain William Dobbin loves Amelia, but only wishes her happiness, which is centered on George.

Written in 1848, Vanity Fair is an excellent satire of English society in the early 19th Century. Thackeray states several times that it is a novel "without a hero", and at a couple of points tries to claim that Amelia, a good person but who inevitably comes across as rather wishy-washy, is the heroine. Thackeray apparently saw people as "abominably selfish and foolish", and this negative view comes across loud and clear with his use of vicious vocabulary, and his unremittingly dark portrayal of human nature. The author's voice is continually present, and his wry observations do contribute to making the novel vastly entertaining. They were also intended to make it instructive to his readers.
