Sobre El Autor

William Makepeace Thackeray was born in Calcutta, India, where his father was in service to the East India Company. After the death of his father in 1816, he was sent to England to attend school. Upon reaching college age, Thackeray attended Trinity College, Cambridge, but he left before completing mostrar más his degree. Instead, he devoted his time to traveling and journalism. Generally considered the most effective satirist and humorist of the mid-nineteenth century, Thackeray moved from humorous journalism to successful fiction with a facility that was partially the result of a genial fictional persona and a graceful, relaxed style. At his best, he held up a mirror to Victorian manners and morals, gently satirizing, with a tone of sophisticated acceptance, the inevitable failure of the individual and of society. He took up the popular fictional situation of the young person of talent who must make his way in the world and dramatized it with satiric directness in The Luck of Barry Lyndon (1844), with the highest fictional skill and appreciation of complexities inherent within the satiric vision in his masterpiece, Vanity Fair (1847), and with a great subtlety of point of view and background in his one historical novel, Henry Esmond (1852). Vanity Fair, a complex interweaving in a vast historical panorama of a large number of characters, derives its title from John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and attempts to invert for satirical purposes, the traditional Christian image of the City of God. Vanity Fair, the corrupt City of Man, remains Thackeray's most appreciated and widely read novel. It contrasts the lives of two boarding-school friends, Becky Sharp and Amelia Smedley. Constantly attuned to the demands of incidental journalism and his sense of professionalism in his relationship with his public, Thackeray wrote entertaining sketches and children's stories and published his humorous lectures on eighteenth-century life and literature. His own fiction shows the influence of his dedication to such eighteenth-century models as Henry Fielding, particularly in his satire, which accepts human nature rather than condemns it and takes quite seriously the applicability of the true English gentleman as a model for moral behavior. Thackeray requested that no authorized biography of him should ever be written, but members of his family did write about him, and these accounts were subsequently published.

Biografía breve
William Makepeace Thackery was second only to Charles Dickens in stature as an author during the Victorian era. His humorous and satirical writings were much in demand by periodicals, including Punch, and he was a popular lecturer. Today he's best known for his novel Vanity Fair, which is required reading in most college English courses. He experienced tragedy in his personal life due to the long deterioration and mental illness of his wife Isabella.

Félix, enamorado de Angélica, le regala un anillo que le da el poder de parecer guapa. Pero, tras una riña entre los pretendientes, Angélica se quita el anillo y se muestra como fea que es. Bulbo usa entonces otro objeto mágico, una rosa, que la hace parecer guapa de nuevo. Angélica queda definitivamente prendada de Bulbo y se casan.… (más)

Elisabeth, una bella joven, se ve obligada a un teatro ínfimo para sostener a su pintoresca familia, los Prior. Protegida por un huésped de su madre, el solterón que relata los hechos, entra a trabajar como institutriz en la casa de su rico amigo Lovel, que enviuda al poco tiempo. Por la casa desfila una galería de personajes que sirven a nuestro autor para caracterizar, con una ironía y especticismo insuperables, los tipos humanos de su época, que podemos ver calcados en la actual.

"... Desde los tiempos de Adán, no ha habido maldad en el mundo que no se originara en alguna mujer. Desde que mi familia existe [ ... ] las mujeres siempre han desempeñado un papel preponderante en las vicisitudes de nuestra raza"
