During the Victorian era, Thackeray was ranked second only to Charles Dickens, being mostly renowned for Vanity Fair. Within this work he was able to satirise whole swaths of humanity while retaining a light touch. The workfeatures his most memorable character, the engagingly roguish Becky Sharp. In Thackeray's own day, some commentators, such as Anthony Trollope, ranked his History of Henry Esmond as his greatest work, perhaps because it expressed Victorian values of duty and earnestness, as did some of his other later novels. Thackeray saw himself as writing in the realistic tradition and distinguished himself from the exaggerations and sentimentality of Dickens. Some later commentators have accepted this self-evaluation and seen him as a realist, but others note his inclination to use eighteenth-century narrative techniques, such as digressions and talking to the reader, and argue that through them he frequently disrupts the illusion of reality.

Each volume is adorned with a delightfully illustrated frontispiece. Collated complete.
