Abstract

334 Biography 34.2 (Fall 2011) gratitude for bringing Minny to our attention, and also for suggesting there may have been a good side to Thackeray’s mother. Even he does not try to rehabilitate Thackeray’s mother-in-law, who is usually portrayed in the most unfl attering colors, but perhaps if someone discovers her letters, that picture will change too. The most shameful thing Aplin does is to recycle a recent sensational- ist story that Thackeray’s funeral was attended by prostitutes he may himself have frequented. According to one observer at the time, a group of brightly dressed women not known to the mourners did show up at the funeral, but to leap from that observation to a conclusion about prostitution, a leap not made until the late twentieth century, seems irresponsible, a sign of the un- fortunate present-minded judgmentalism that mars this latest look at, or at least around, the author of Vanity Fair.
