  • "As the coach pulls out of Miss Pinkerton's academy carrying two young ladies, one leans out the window and flings her parting gift back into the garden of the school. This defiant act introduces, dear reader, Miss Becky Sharp."@en
  • "19th century novel which satirizes the English society of the time."@en
  • "No one is better equipped in the struggle for wealth and worldly success thanthe alluring and ruthless Becky Sharp, who defies her impoverished background to clamber up the social ladder. Her sentimental companion Amelia, however, longs for caddish soldier George. As the two heroines make their way through the tawdry glamour of English society in the early 1800s, battles -- military and domestic -- are fought, fortunes made and lost. The one steadfast and honorable figure in this corrupt world is Dobbin, devoted to Amelia, bringing pathos and depth to William Thackeray's gloriously satirical epic of love and social adventure. - Publisher."@en
  • "A wickedly satirical story of pretentious English social climbers."
  • "First published in 1919 by Chivers, Bath, England."@en
  • "Vanity Fair is a story of two heroines---one humble, the other a scheming social climber---who meet in boarding school and embark on markedly different lives. Amid the swirl of London's posh ballrooms and affairs of love and war, their fortunes rise and fall. Through it all, Thackeray lampoons the shallow values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper crust. What results is a prescient look at the dogged pursuit of wealth and status---and the need for humility"
  • "Provides a satirical look at Victorian manners by recounting the experiences of two finishing school graduates; greedy and shrewd Becky Sharp, determined to get on in the world, and gentle, kind, and not-too-clever Amelia Sedley."@en
  • "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. --From publisher's description."@en

  • "Chronicles the exploits of Becky Sharp, an unscrupulous young woman who is determined to achieve wealth and social success."@en
  • "This book is a satire of early 19th century British society. A bewitching beauty who bends men to her will using charm, sex, and guile. An awkward man who remains loyal to his friends, even when those friends don't deserve his affection. A mother who cannot get over the loss of her husband and devotes her life to her child. Though written in 1847-48, William Makepeace Thackeray's Vanity Fair is peopled by types who remain familiar today. The novel's early nineteenth-century setting immerses us in a strange world of social stratification, moral strictures, and self-conscious sentiment. Yet its characters--from dissolute playboys and self-important heirs to judgmental aunts and finicky gourmands--are instantly recognizable. --Penguin.com."
  • "Chronicles the exploits of Becky Sharp, an unscrupulous young woman who is determined to achieve wealth and social success, and her sentimental companion, Amelia, who has fallen for a caddish soldier, in the classic novel set against the backdrop of English society in the early 1800s."@en
  • "Presents the nineteenth-century masterpiece about an unscrupulous young woman who is determined to achieve wealth and social success."
  • "Een satirische visie op de Engelse samenleving in het begin van de 19e eeuw met scherpe karaktertekening, vooral van de vrouwelijke hoofdpersoon Becky Sharp."
  • "Thackeray's most representative novel - a picture of society on a broad scale, with Becky Sharp, the adventuress, a principal character. Includes a famous account of the Battle of Waterloo. First published in 1848. For other editions, see Author Catalog."@en
  • "A satirical look at Victorian manners recounting the experiences of two finishing school graduates, Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley."@en
  • "Includes summaries and commentaries, character sketches, selected questions, and more."
  • ""No one is better equipped in the struggle for wealth than the alluring, resourceful Becky Sharp, who ruthlessly clambers up the social ladder while her sweet, sentimental friend Amelia longs for her worthless soldier lover. As fortunes change, and battles are fought at home and abroad, who will survive?" -- Book cover."
  • "The story of English society in the Napoleonic Wars and the early nineteenth century as told through the characters of Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley--Résumé de l'éditeur."
  • ""A picture of society on a broad canvas, embracing a great variety of characters and interests, the object being to depict mankind with all its faults and meannesses, without idealization or romance ... The careers of Becky Sharp, the adventuress, and her husband, Rawdon Crawley, make an apt contrast to the humdrum lives of the good hero and heroine, Dobbin and Amanda. The nobility, fashionable people about town, the mercantile aristrocracy and the needy classes below them, are all portrayed in the most lifelike way ... Thackeray combines his comment with narrative ... To many readers, indeed, his sarcastic dissertations are the chief intellectual delight." Baker. Guide to the Best Fic. *** "Becky Sharp, one of the most resourceful, engaging, and amoral women in literature, is the heroine of this sparkling satirical panorama of British society during the Napoleonic Wars." *** "Becky Sharp and her husband stand in contrast to the lives of Dobbin and Amelia in this revelation of societal classes." *** "The book is a densely populated, multi-layered panorama of manners and human frailties ... The novel deals mainly with the interwoven fortunes of two women, the wellborn, passive Amelia Sedley and the ambitious, essentially amoral Becky Sharp, the latter perhaps the more memorable character Thackeray created. The adventuress Becky is the character around whom all the men play their parts." Merriam-Webster's Ency of Lit. *** "A satirical look at Victorian manners recounting the experiences of two finishing school graduates, Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley.""@en

  • "The tale of a young lady and the family she is employed by."
  • "With finishing-school credentials and proper connections, Becky Sharp begins as a governess, wins the hearts of the moneyed young and old, and, in the light of presentation at court and calculated scandals, emerges a full-fledged courtesan on the Continent, living surprisingly beyond her means."@en
  • "GENERAL & LITERARY FICTION. No one is better equipped in the struggle for wealth than the alluring, resourceful Becky Sharp, who ruthlessly clambers up the social ladder while her sweet, sentimental friend Amelia longs for her worthless soldier lover. As fortunes change, and battles are fought at home and abroad, who will survive?"
