Серия: "Penguin English Library"

This is the `Penguin English Library Edition` of `Vanity Fair` by William Makepeace Thackeray. `Vanitas Vanitatum! Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has his desire? or, having it, is satisfied?` No one is better equipped in the struggle for wealth and worldly success than the alluring and ruthless Becky Sharp, who defies her impoverished background to clamber up the class ladder. Her sentimental companion Amelia, however, longs only for caddish soldier George. As the two heroines make their way through the tawdry glamour of Regency society, battles - military and domestic - are fought, fortunes made and lost. The one steadfast and honourable figure in this corrupt world is Dobbin with his devotion to Amelia, bringing pathos and depth to Thackeray`s gloriously satirical epic of love and social adventure. `The Penguin English Library` - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
