A richly comic dissection of English society during the Napoleonic Wars. Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley together leave the shelter of Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies. They now inhabit the infinitely more fascinating and dangerous Vanity Fair where the only standard is worldly sucess. Becky, charming and amoral, is well-fitted for the fight; when an ill-judged bowl of punch ruins her plans for marriage, her quick wits soon find a range of alternatives. But sweet and sentimental Amelia only longs for her worthless soldier lover.
