Jahrmarkt der Eitelkeit (Vanity Fair) ist ein wichtiges Werk des englischen Schriftstellers William Makepeace Thackeray. Der Gesellschaftsroman bietet ein facettenreiches, alle sozialen Klassen einschließendes Bild der Londoner Gesellschaft zu Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts und zeichnet sich durch seinen ironischen Stil und seine präzise Darstellung der handelnden Figuren und ihrer Charaktere aus. Die Geschichte beginnt in Miss Pinkertons "Erziehungsanstalt für junge Damen", wo Becky Sharp und Amelia Sedley soeben ihr Studium abgeschlossen haben und sich auf ihre Abreise in Amelias Haus am Russell Square vorbereiten. Becky wird als willensstarke und gewandte junge Frau beschrieben, die entschlossen ist, sich in der Gesellschaft zu behaupten und ihren Weg zu gehen, Amelia hingegen als gutmütiges, liebenswertes, aber einfältiges junges Mädchen. Am Russell Square wird Becky Sharp dem schneidigen, egozentrischen Captain George Osborne vorgestellt (mit dem Amelia von frühester Jugend an verlobt ist), sowie auch Amelias Bruder, Joseph "Joe" Sedley, einem tollpatschigen und prahlerischen, aber reichen Angehörigen der Britischen Ostindien-Kompanie, der gerade ins Vereinigte Königreich zurückgekehrt ist. William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863) war ein englischer Schriftsteller und gilt neben Charles Dickens und George Eliot als bedeutendster englischsprachiger Romancier des Viktorianischen Zeitalters.

Americans tried to fix the world and neglected the home front, resulting in failure at both ends. Ignorance became fashionable and opportunistic polymorphous predators, parasites, and false prophets took advantage of the situation. It is hard to believe how far the nation fell into violent interracial melodramas, political mediocrity, incivility, and confusion. There is no agreement on what is good and evil. Everything is relative, ugly and pretty, real and false, right and wrong. American society suffers from a lack of coherence and consistency, and such a heavy burden of illogical non-sense that it can no longer handle all the contradictions. We are unaware of where we are going...
