Free read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ð William Makepeace Thackeray William Makepeace Thackeray ð 2 Characters Vanity Fair A Novel without a Hero Review Ø 102 Vanity Fair 18478 is the story of English society in the Napoleonic Wars and the early nineteenth century but not the text book story As Thackeray wrote 'there is a great uantity of eating and drinking making love and jilting laughing and the contrary smoking cheating. Written in 1848 Vanity Fair is an excellent satire of English society in the early 19th Century Thackeray states several times that it is a novel without a hero and at a couple of points tries to claim that Amelia a good person but who inevitably comes across as rather wishy washy is the heroine But we all know that a bad girl or boy is infinitely interesting than a good girl or boy so I suspect Thackeray of dissembling even here Becky Sharp is out and out the anti heroine in this book which could well have been named The Rise and Fall of Rebecca SharpThackeray apparently saw people as abominably selfish and foolish and this negative view comes across loud and clear with his use of vicious vocabulary and his unremittingly dark portrayal of human nature The author s voice is continually present and his wry observations do contribute to making the novel vastly entertaining They were also intended to make it instructive to his readersInterestingly the author makes a habit of commenting on particular instances of female behaviour and drawing from this to make a general observation of all women At first the reader is inclined to think how astute this is how well Thackeray knows women and how unusual and refreshing it is to find this in a male writer of his day However these observations are invariably judgemental whereas he tends not to apply the same maxims to his male characters The men are seen much as individuals A modern reader becomes uneasy with this after a while it begins to seem less witty and apt and in fact rather tiresomeHere is an example of Thackeray s views on women What do men know about women s martyrdoms We should go mad had we to endure the hundredth part of those daily pains which are meekly borne by many women Ceaseless slavery meeting with no reward constant gentleness and kindness met by cruelty as constant love labour patience watchfulness without even so much as the acknowlegement of a good word all this how many of them have to bear in uiet and appear abroad with cheerful faces as if they felt nothing Tender slaves that they are they must needs be hypocrites and weak Thackeray s perceived audience will have been male readers of course and this is clear when he addresses the reader personally referring to your wife your sister or your servants And the audience will have been educated land owning white males at that Some of the witty observations about an heiress from St Kitts or a black manservant called Sambo make the modern reader cringe The author is scathing about all his characters partialities and weaknesses yet because he is a man of his time culture and class he cannot see his own prejudices complacently considering that this is the only correct stanceVanity Fair was serialised in 20 monthly parts As with other novels which were originally issued in this way the structure is not as tight as the reader would wish There are great swathes of writing about charades or a play or a battle which are rather flabby Some parts seem very ponderous or lead nowhere whereas others are extremely witty andor exciting Authors such as Thackeray and Dickens to whom this applied for nearly all of his novels would surely have wished to edit their work or even rewritten scenes or altered characters had they had the opportunity It is incredible to a modern reader that they fared as well as they did under this draconian regime And it is therefore unfair to compare this with the structured later novels as it is not a level playing field Vanity Fair is a wicked foolish place full of all sorts of humbugs and falsenesses and pretensions states the author This theme of Vanity Fair is reiterated over and over again and throughout the reader will be thinking that nothing has changed over a century later Thackeray s observations of human behaviour are so apposite the descriptions of situations personalities expressed motives and hidden motives which are inevitably very different are timeless And this of course coupled with the deliciously droll manner of Thackeray s writing is what makes this novel a classic It is hugely entertaining in parts and would have been a 5 star novel had Thackeray s voice and attitudes not been uite so dominant throughout EDIT Interestingly each monthly installment of Vanity Fair only ever sold 5000 copies at the most At the same time the hugely popular figure Charles Dickens was publishing his novel Dombey and Son which was also being serialised by the same publisher Before long the episodes of Dombey and Son were selling 40000 copies per month eight times as many Yet of the two nowadays probably Vanity Fair is the popular
