本套书包括《Catherine A Story 凯瑟琳(英文版)》、《The Book of Snobs 庸人之书(英文版)》、《The History of Henry Esmond 亨利·艾斯蒙(英文版)》、《The History of Pendennis 潘丹尼斯(英文版)》、《The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq. 巴里·林登的回忆(英文版)》和《The Virginians 弗吉尼亚人(英文版)》,共31册。《Catherine A Story 凯瑟琳(英文版)》This work first appeared in serialized installments in Fraser's Magazine between May 1839 and February 1840. Thackeray's original intention in writing it was to criticize the Newgate school of crime fiction, exemplified by Bulwer-Lytton and Harrison Ainsworth, whose works Thackeray felt glorified criminals. Thackeray even included Dickens in this criticism for his portrayal of the good-hearted streetwalker Nancy and the charming pickpocket, the Artful Dodger, in Oliver Twist. Thackeray felt the result was a failure, and did not republish it in his lifetime. Ainsworth's Jack Sheppard portrayed a real life prison breaker and thief from the eighteenth century in flattering terms. In contrast, Thackeray sought out a real life criminal whom he could portray in as unflattering terms as possible. He settled on Catherine Hayes, another eighteenth-century criminal, who was burned at the stake for murdering her husband in 1726. However, as he told his mother, Thackeray developed a "sneaking kindness" for his heroine,[3] and the novel that was supposed to present criminals as totally vile, without any redeeming characteristics, instead made Catherine and her roguish companions seem rather appealing. 《The Virginians 弗吉尼亚人(英文版)》The Virginians is a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray which forms a sequel to his Henry Esmond. Set partly in England and partly in colonial Virginia,It tells the story of Henry Esmond's twin grandsons, George and Henry Warrington. The novel follows the trials and tribulations of the twin brothers whose personal lives intrude on their decision to fight in the war effort. Henry's romantic entanglements with an older woman lead to his taking a commission in the British army and fighting under the command of General Wolfe at the capture of Quebec. On the outbreak of the American War of Independence he takes the revolutionary side. George, who is also a British officer, thereupon resigns his commission rather than take up arms against his brother. Later two brothers find themselves on opposite sides of the war for American Independence. The breach between them is followed as the brothers take opposite sides in the American Civil War. A subtle commentary on the Civil War and the breach between the two sides is also presented.
