Vanity Fair is My Life Now.

30 December, 2009

As I become increasingly ensconced in my dissertation, you may see a theme to these posts and, I’m afraid, a certain lack of dedication.

I present here a very unfavorable review of my beloved Vanity Fair.  It was published in Freeman’s Journal, an Irish newspaper,  on February 20th 1847, after the second installment was published (Vanity Fair was published in monthly installment as a supplement to Punch).  In my research of contemporary reviews, I found an alarming trend of the Irish positively hating Thackeray and Vanity Fair.  I can’t imagine why.  I share this so I can publicly proclaim it as rubbish, and recommend heartily that everyone reads Vanity Fair.
