Short biography
William Makepeace Thackery was second only to Charles Dickens in stature as an author during the Victorian era. His humorous and satirical writings were much in demand by periodicals, including Punch, and he was a popular lecturer. Today he's best known for his novel Vanity Fair, which is required reading in most college English courses. He experienced tragedy in his personal life due to the long deterioration and mental illness of his wife Isabella.
