description

Napoleon has England on edge. For the cunning and conniving Becky Sharp, it’s an opportunity to take advantage of the chaos and improve her lowly station. Her friend Amelia Sedley, a blue-blood pawn, affords Becky entrée into the moneyed class. As the guileless Amelia pines for a rakish soldier, the ruthless Becky climbs upward, setting the stage for a domestic battlefield of greed, ambition, deception, and dizzying reversals of love and fortune.

Bracingly unsentimental, and featuring the wiliest woman in literature, William Makepeace Thackeray’s Vanity Fair is a savagely satiric panorama of English society at war.

Revised edition: Previously published as Vanity Fair, this edition of Vanity Fair (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
