    Vanity Fair, with its rich cast of characters, takes place on the snakes-and-ladders board of life. Amelia Sedley, daughter of a wealthy merchant, has a loving mother to supervise her courtship. Becky Sharp, an orphan, has to use her wit, charm, and resourcefulness to escape from her destiny as a governess. This she does ruthlessly, musing: "I think I could become a good woman, if I had 5000 pounds a year."

    The people who inhabit the Arctic stand out among folk traditions in the world, for the sheer weight and number of their stories. This is not surprising really as their long ‘winter night’ lasts for half the year. Their stories are nearly all drawn from nature, and their place in it: as the very harshness of their environment defines very much of their lives.
