More than any other major Victorian novelist, Thackeray had the ability to anatomize codes of respectability from within; his anomalous social position, both inside and outside the boundaries that both entranced and repelled him, gave him a set of analytic tools to pry open the secrets of early Victorian propriety, and made him an accomplished writer of the sort of satirical, but not radical, pieces that a burgeoning British press would require. Where he found his first literary homes were in two notable periodicals, Fraser舗s Magazine and Punch.
