As we know, the name of Vanity Fair comes from the John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. However, they are totally different. For Thackeray, everyone lives in Vanity Fair or society.Vanity has become the desire for society's approval and rewards,the individual seeks, not spiritual salvation, but the rewards of this world success, status, and wealth. In Vanity Fair, every person lives under a cloak. In order to get all the vanity, everyone have to be a social-climber. This is not a normal society, but one into a looking-glass mirror, which can distort all the virtues but reflect and exaggerate all the weakness of humanity.This novel was called a novel without a hero, in which Rebecca Sharp was the most impressive character.

Becky is a clever and strong-willed young woman determined to make her way in society, and Amelia Sedley is a tender , simple-minded young girl.

vanity fair Vanity Fair 的读后感

Rebecca was the most vivid and best-created image in Vanity Fair. Many critics regarded Beckey as an evil, loose, snobbish, brazen, and ambitious adventuress. However, the society in which Rebecca lived was totally a hypocritical, snobbish, merciless, flattering vanity fair. As a poor orphan, Rebecca was born without status or wealth. The society didn’t offer her any chance, but harsh criticism of her painstaking efforts to obtain chances.” From her experience, we see the people in the lower-class struggle, pursue for a living by every possible means. Therefore, according to her time and her experience, doubtlessly, she was also the victim of that age. Along with the suffering she brought to other people, she herself also suffered lots of agony.
