Vanity Fair brought Thackeray his fame and is a panoramic portrait of English society. His earliest works were written under pseudonyms such as Charles James Yellowplush, Michael Angelo Titmarsh and George Savage Fitz-Boodle. His parodies and satire tended towards attacks on high society, military prowess, the institution of marriage and hypocrisy. During the Victorian era Thackeray was ranked second only to Charles Dickens.
