The subject of Thackeray's Vanity Fair is society itself. This novel presents, along with the broad diversity of human life, the multitude of clearly perceived objects that give concrete definition to the lives lived among them and lead us ultimately to recognise the wide range of values of the people who live those lives. Thackeray's ironic use of the sophisticated narrator to mediate this detail serves as the subject of a substantial section of Harden's study. Three other sections cover the work's Expanding Panorama, its nature as a novel, and Thackeray's ability to balance style and substance.

This second edition of a unique companion to Thackeray's great novel enables the reader to follow the novelist step by step through the maze of his erudition, clarifying the immense range of references in the novel. Since these annotations are keyed to Thackeray's chapters, not to the page numbers of any particular edition of the novel, they can be consulted in connection with any edition of Vanity Fair the reader happens to own. Within each chapter of this book, the entries follow the order in which they appear in the novel. In addition to the words, phrases, and allusions which obviously or possibly require annotation, the compilers have occasionally commented upon subtleties of narration-without intruding critical opinions upon the reader-and entered a few remarks on Thackeray's own illustrations. They have also addressed textual matters, questions of composition and publication, connections with other areas of Thackeray's oeuvre, and the influence of other works of literature on the novel. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students studying the English Novel. Also of interest to scholars in the field of Victorian Literature as well as general readers.
