Published in 1847, William Makepeace Thackeray's Novels by Eminent Hands caricatures the works of the contemporary authors. Through this work, Thackeray presents parodies of the fiction writers of his era. His burlesque caused him to lose friendships and earned him censure for the way he meted out criticism in the work.

Thackeray, an only child, was born in Calcutta. He studied at Cambridge, but, never a keen student, he left the University in 1830 to travel the continent. He began to study law but gave it up and squandered much of his inheritance on gambling and poor investments. He studied art in Paris, but he did not pursue that professionally either, except to illustrate his own novels.He was a successful novelist, earning the adulation of the very people he satirized. His death at 53 was unexpected.
