    In at least one case, a major plot point is provided through an image and its caption. The caption that this is Becky's second appearance in the character of Clytemnestra clarifies that she Vanity Fair book indeed murder him for the insurance money, [18] likely through laudanum or another poison. I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about. I gifted this book to my energetic nephew, and its short witty rhymes have proved both easily digestible and a sufficient distraction from mom's smartphone. Her behaviour at Sir Pitt's house gains his favour, and after the premature death of his second wife, he proposes marriage to her.

    Vanity Fair, the corrupt City of Man, remains Thackeray's most Vanity Fair book and widely read novel. Fluent in both French and English, Becky has a beautiful singing voice, plays the piano, and shows great talent as an actress. No matter how minor a character, Thackeray identifies that person — perhaps by the significance of his name only — as living or not living in Vanity Fair. Meanwhile, Becky also has a son, also named after his father.

    With affected dignity he extends two fingers for his sister to shake. She returns to England, and manages a respectable life, although all her previous friends refuse to acknowledge her. Before he leaves, Rawdon gives Becky all Vanity Fair book money he's won at cards and the next day Becky tries to flee the city. But the book takes another path, through the Kamchatka town where the girls and their mother live, to explore how their disappearance ricochets around the community. She does not marry him, but she takes all his money and he dies in terror of her, the implication being that she has, at least, hastened his death. July 23,
