Description

Vanity Fair: A Novel without a Hero is a novel Thackeray that satirizes society in early 19th-century England. As the manager of the Performance sits before the curtain on the boards and looks into the Fair, a feeling of profound melancholy comes over him in his survey of the bustling place. There is a great quantity of eating and drinking, making love and jilting, laughing and the contrary, smoking, cheating, fighting, dancing and fiddling; there are bullies pushing about, bucks ogling the women, knaves picking pockets, policemen on the look out, quacks (Other quacks, plague take them!) bawling in front of their booths, and yokels looking up at the tinselled dancers and poor old rouged tumblers, while the light fingered folk are operating upon their pockets behind.

Customer Reviews

"Vanity Fair"

An enthralling satire of the 19th Century English upper class that savages its obsession with money, power, status, and lineage.

Modern Life has Little Changed

Some 200 years later, we humans have remained much the same as depicted here. We might all find examples of our selves or our neighbors in this classic novel and wince. Can't we ever rise above our petty Vanity Fair? Social climbing cannot possibly be depicted any better than it is showcased here, nastiness at its finest!!!
