Vanity Fair (Penguin Classics)

William Makepeace Thackeray


not anyone is healthier built within the fight for wealth and worldly good fortune than the beautiful and ruthless Becky Sharp, who defies her impoverished historical past to clamber up the category ladder. Her sentimental significant other Amelia, even though, longs just for caddish soldier George. because the heroines make their method in the course of the tawdry glamour of Regency society, battles—military and domestic—are fought, fortunes made and misplaced. the single steadfast and honourable determine during this corrupt international is Dobbin together with his devotion to Amelia, bringing pathos and intensity to Thackeray's gloriously satirical epic of affection and social adventure.
