William Makepeace Thackeray - Author

About the Author

William Makepeace Thackeray was born in Calcutta on 18 July 1811, into a family that had long ties to India. His father died when he was four and his mother remarried. At the age of six, the young Thackeray was sent to school in England. His education concluded in a typical gentlemanly fashion, when he left Cambridge in 1830 without taking his degree after incurring large gambling debts.

Thackeray found it hard to settle down and made abortive efforts to pursue a career as a lawyer and then as an artist. He lost his fortune and spent long periods in Paris from 1833 without establishing himself. His marriage to Isabella Shawe in 1836 further increased his money problems. Gradually, however, he made his mark in journalism, and by 1840 he had started to publish fiction as well as travel sketches and social observation. In the same year he suffered another setback when his wife became mentally disturbed. Eventually, she had to be confined to an institution, leaving him with two young daughters to look after. In 1847-8 he made his reputation when Vanity Fair  appeared in monthly parts. Later works included Pendennis (1848-50) and the historical novel The Virginians (1857-9), which at the time was regarded as superior to Vanity Fair. Thackeray was a popular lecturer on eighteenth-century subjects and also editor of the Cornhill Magazine from 1859. He died at the age of fifty-two on Christmas Eve, 1863.

A masterpiece of social satire, featuring one of literature's best-loved characters, Becky Sharp. Ruthless social climber and irrepressible anti-hero Becky Sharp will do anything to raise her position in Society, from impoverished orphan to woman of means. Clever, lively and resourceful, Becky is the total opposite of her naive and sentimental schoolmate Amelia Sedley, a pampered yet good-natured girl from a wealthy family. As both women pursue love and life in London, against the background of the Napoleonic Wars, Thackeray paints a vivid portrait of decadent Regency England and satirises its corruption and flaws to delightful effect.

Wolves and the Lamb

Classic play. According to Wikipedia: "e;Thackeray is most often compared to one other great novelist of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens. During the Victorian era, he was ranked second only to Dickens, but he is now much less read and is known almost exclusively for Vanity Fair. In that novel he was able to satirize whole swaths of humanity while retaining a light touch. It also features his most memorable character, the engagingly roguish Becky Sharp. As a result, unlike Thackeray's other novels, it remains popular with the general reading public; it is a standard fixture in university courses and has been repeatedly adapted for movies and television. In Thackeray's own day, some commentators, such as Anthony Trollope, ranked his History of Henry Esmond as his greatest work, perhaps because it expressed Victorian values of duty and earnestness, as did some of his other later novels. It is perhaps for this reason that they have not survived as well as Vanity Fair, which satirizes those values."e;

They pervade all classes--Affecting instance of Colonel Snobley."e;According to Wikipedia: "e;Thackeray is most often compared to one other great novelist of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens. During the Victorian era, he was ranked second only to Dickens, but he is now much less read and is known almost exclusively for Vanity Fair. In that novel he was able to satirize whole swaths of humanity while retaining a light touch. It also features his most memorable character, the engagingly roguish Becky Sharp. As a result, unlike Thackeray's other novels, it remains popular with the general reading public; it is a standard fixture in university courses and has been repeatedly adapted for movies and television. In Thackeray's own day, some commentators, such as Anthony Trollope, ranked his History of Henry Esmond as his greatest work, perhaps because it expressed Victorian values of duty and earnestness, as did some of his other later novels. It is perhaps for this reason that they have not survived as well as Vanity Fair, which satirizes those values."e;

Vanity Fair (Illustrated by Charles Crombie with an Introduction by John Edwin Wells)

Author: William Makepeace Thackeray Format: eBook Release Date: 26/12/2017

First published serially from 1847 to 1848, "e;Vanity Fair"e; is William Makepeace Thackeray's most famous work in which the author reflects his interest in deconstructing the notions of literary heroism of his era. It is the story of Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley, who have just completed their studies at Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies and are beginning to embark upon the world. The simple-minded nature of Amelia, who comes from a wealthy family, is contrasted with the strong-willed nature of Becky, who will stop at nothing to climb the social ranks of English society. The novel takes its name from John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, one of the most famous work of Thackeray's day, in which a town called Vanity is depicted to represent man's sinful attachment to worldly things. Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, "e;Vanity Fair"e; is Thackeray's classic satire of the societal trappings of Victorian England, self described as a novel without a hero. This edition includes an introduction by John Edwin Wells, illustrations by Charles Crombie, and a biographical afterword.

Author: William Makepeace Thackeray Format: eBook Release Date: 15/11/2017

A deliciously satirical attack on a money-mad society, Vanity Fair, which first appeared in 1847, is an immensely moral novel, and an immensely witty one. Called in its subtitle A Novel Without a Hero, Vanity Fair has instead two heroines: the faithful, loyal Amelia Sedley and the beautiful and scheming social climber Becky Sharp. It also engages a huge cast of wonderful supporting characters as the novel spins from Miss Pinkerton's academy for young ladies to affairs of love and war on the Continent to liaisons in the dazzling ballrooms of London. Thackeray's forte is the bon mot and it is amply exercised in a novel filled with memorably wicked lines. Lengthy and leisurely in pace, the novel follows the adventures of Becky and Amelia as their fortunes rise and fall, creating a tale of both picaresque and risque. Thackery mercilessly skewers his society, especially the upper class, poking fun at their shallow values and pointedly jabbing at their hypocritical morals. His weapons, however, are not fire and brimstone but an unerring eye for the absurd and a genius for observation of the foibles of his age. An enduring classic, this great novel is a brilliant study in duplicity and hypocrisy... and a mirror with which to view our own times. The more I read Thackeray's works the more certain I am that he stands alone - alone in his sagacity, alone in his truth, alone in his feeling Thackeray is a Titan. -Charlotte BrontRe-reading "e;Vanity Fair"e;, one realises what a brilliant innovation this was in the English novel. -V. S. PritchettThackeray's harshest criticism of humanity is simply the point where ours commences. His perception of self-interest in every act is the ABC of modern psychology. -Louis AuchinclossBecky Sharp is one of the best bad women in literature... She is deliciously bad in an era when women were not meant to be. -Donna LeonI am not conscious of being in any way a disciple of his, unless it constitute discipleship to think him, as I suppose the majority of people with any intellect do, on the whole, the most powerful of living novelists. -George Eliot

What is the Vanity Fair? Here is one of the opinions: it is a gathering of the most vile people, who are only interested in themselves. To survive at this "e;fair"e; is to constantly have to lie, pretend, and be hypocritical. They do not appreciate sincere feelings, only the contents of your wallet and the size of your bank account. And yet, in order to deserve an honorable place among the elite, a person should be bright, as, for example, the protagonist of the novel Becky. But how long will her talents last?

Vanity Fair is an English novel by William Makepeace Thackeray which follows the lives of Becky Sharp and Emmy Sedley amid their friends and families during and after the Napoleonic Wars. It was first published as a 19-volume monthly serial from 1847 to 1848, carrying the subtitle Pen and Pencil Sketches of English Society, reflecting both its satirisation of early 19th-century British society and the many illustrations drawn by Thackeray to accompany the text. It was published as a single volume in 1848 with the subtitle A Novel without a Hero, reflecting Thackeray's interest in deconstructing his era's conventions regarding literary heroism. It is sometimes considered the "e;principal founder"e; of the Victorian domestic novel. The story is framed as a puppet play and the narrator, despite being an authorial voice, is notoriously unreliable. Late in the narrative, it is revealed that the entire account has been 2nd- or 3rd-hand gossip the writer picked up "e;years ago"e; from Lord Tapeworm, British charge d'affaires in one of the minor German states and relative of several of the other aristocrats in the story but none of the main characters: "e;the famous little Becky puppet"e;, "e;the Amelia Doll"e;, "e;the Dobbin Figure"e;, "e;the Little Boys"e;, and "e;the Wicked Nobleman, on which no expense has been spared"e;. Despite her many stated faults and still worse ones admitted to have been passed over in silence, Becky emerges as the "e;hero"e;-what is now called an antihero-in place of Amelia because Thackeray is able to illustrate that "e;the highest virtue a fictional character can possess is interest."e; The serial was a popular and critical success; the novel is now considered a classic and has inspired several film adaptations. In 2003, Vanity Fair was listed at No. 122 on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's best-loved books.

This classic story of two nineteenth-century social climbers is the basis for countless films and TV series, and one of the UK's ';Best-Loved Novels.' Before the Real Housewives, there were Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley. Ruthless and cunning, Becky may have been born in a lower class, but now that she's graduated from school, she's ready to climb up to a better lifeand do whatever it takes to get there. Her friend Emmy, however, is the opposite. She may have mastered music, dancing, and embroidery like any young woman of her class, but she utterly lacks a backbone. Together these friends navigate the perils of Regency society as they search for love and happiness. Social battles are waged against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and when the smoke finally clears, there's no telling who will come out victorious. A satirical masterpiece, Vanity Fair was #14 on The Guardian's list of the 100 Best Novels and #122 in the BBC's ';Big Read' poll for the UK's best-loved novel. It has inspired numerous adaptations, from early silent films to a 2004 movie by Mira Nair starring Reese Witherspoon as Becky.

Stephen Fry narrates this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the famous Victorian comic novel. Orphan Becky Sharp and wealthy Amelia Sedley are best friends at Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies. On leaving school, ambitious, social-climbing Becky looks for a rich man to support her, while the sweet-natured Amelia meets her old friend Dobbin, who is instantly captivated. Becky takes a job in the service of Sir Pitt Crawley, and uses her charm to hook his dashing son. However, marriage to Captain Rawdon of the Guards does not provide the fortune she seeks. Meanwhile, Amelia rejects the faithful Dobbin and becomes engaged to the handsome George Osborne - but destiny has some shocks in store for her, too. As time goes by, the girls' fortunes rise and fall. War, financial disaster and the ruin of her reputation leave the resourceful Beckyundaunted, but Amelia finds it harder to bear fate's blows. It will be many years before their story is played out, and their futures finally decided...

Subtitled "e;a novel without a hero,"e; Vanity Fair offers an acidly satirical romp across all levels of English society during the Napoleonic wars. William Thackeray focuses on how the war affects people other than soldiers, the typical heroes. All of his characters are deeply flawed, from social climber Becky Sharp and sweet Amelia Sedley to caddish George Osborne and loyal William Dobbin. Becky, liar and hypocrite, takes center stage as one of literature's great female protagonists. Penniless, armed with only her beauty, charm, and cunning, she claws her way forward by practicing the corrupt principles of her world. Becky seduces her enemies and betrays friends with a charismatic energy that has captivated generations of readers.Regarded as Thackeray's best novel and masterpiece, Vanity Fair was published in serial form in 1847–48 in Punch and established the author's literary reputation as well as his social status and financial security. Critic A. E. Dyson acclaimed it as "e;one of the world's most devious novels, devious in its characterization, its irony, its explicit moralizing, its exuberance, its tone. Few novels demand more continuing alertness from the reader, or offer more intellectual and moral stimulation in return."e;

Balciul desertaciunilor

Author: William Makepeace Thackeray Format: eBook Release Date: 14/06/2016

Balciul desertaciunilor (1847-1848) este un roman satiric. Ca si titlul, volumul are ca tema vanitatea celor bogati si puternici. Autorul pare sa isi atentioneze cititorii inca de la inceput ca banii si puterea, desi importanti in viata de zi cu zi, nu conduc in mod obligatoriu la fericire sau multumire, si nu ar trebui sa ajunga singura dorinta in viata. Povestea incepe cu personajele Amelia Sedley si Rebecca Sharp, parasind academia doamnei Mrs .Pinkerton, pentru a-si trai viata in Vanity Fair, un loc imaginar, al urcarii sociale si a cautarii bunastarii financiare. Amelia apartine unei familii bune, si considera ca bunastarea financiara sau puterea nu ar trebui sa fie importante in viata, dar Rebecca este o orfana si simte ca aceste lucruri ar trebui sa fie singurul ei scop in viata. Rebecca incearca din rasputeri sa intre in lumea buna a societatii, si in cercul social inalt din Vanity Fair, casatorindu-se cu fratele Ameliei. Dar planurile sale sunt distruse de George Osborne, viitorul sot al Ameliei.

"e;I think I could be a good woman, if I had five thousand a year,"e; observes beautiful and clever Becky Sharp, one of the wickedest-and most appealing-women in all of literature. Becky is just one of the many fascinating figures that populate William Makepeace Thackeray's novel Vanity Fair, a wonderfully satirical panorama of upper-middle-class life and manners in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century.Scorned for her lack of money and breeding, Becky must use all her wit, charm and considerable sex appeal to escape her drab destiny as a governess. From London's ballrooms to the battlefields of Waterloo, the bewitching Becky works her wiles on a gallery of memorable characters, including her lecherous employer, Sir Pitt, his rich sister, Miss Crawley, and Pitt's dashing son, Rawdon, the first of Becky's misguided sexual entanglements.Filled with hilarious dialogue and superb characterizations, Vanity Fair is a richly entertaining comedy that asks the reader, "e;Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has his desire? or, having it, is satisfied?"e;

Vanity Fair is an English novel by William Makepeace Thackeray which follows the lives of Becky Sharp and Emmy Sedley amid their friends and families during and after the Napoleonic Wars. It was first published as a 19-volume monthly serial from 1847 to 1848, carrying the subtitle Pen and Pencil Sketches of English Society, reflecting both its satirisation of early 19th-century British society and the many illustrations drawn by Thackeray to accompany the text. It was published as a single volume in 1848 with the subtitle A Novel without a Hero, reflecting Thackeray's interest in deconstructing his era's conventions regarding literary heroism.It is sometimes considered the "e;principal founder"e; of the Victorian domestic novel.
