Vanity Fair was the first work that Thackeray published under his own name. Extremely well-received at the time, it is now remembered as a classic of English literature. While the novel satirizes society in early 19th-century England, Thackeray meant the book to be not only entertaining but also instructive.
Sienkiewicz received the 1905 Nobel Price in Literature for his "outstanding merits as an epic writer".
The novel follows the developing love between a Christian woman and a Roman Patrician in the time of Nero.
The romantic story arc is set against the conflict of the moral systems of the long established Roman Empire and the developing Christianity.

The novel is based on extensive historical research and gives a good view of life in those times.
