Thackeray himself said of his masterpiece, "there is a great quantity of eating and drinking, making love and jilting, laughing and the contrary, smoking, cheating, fighting, dancing and fiddling." Amidst this great romp swirls Becky Sharp, one of literature's most complex and complete heroines. We'll forego too much analysis to revel in the fun, candor, big-heartedness and love Thackeray captures so perfectly.
