Given, however, the vastness of the topic and of the debate, I would like here, after laying out some of the general grounds of the conversation about realism, to consider a few of its important, characteristically recurrent elements. And I will try to do this by taking most of my examples from a single novel, Vanity Fair, which has managed to survive the aesthetic and ideological wars as both an eccentric and an exemplary realist fiction. I want not to explicate the book but to look at some fragments that can help suggest the limits, the problems, and the power of nineteenth-century English realism.

Free indirect discourse has turned out to be the best mode by which an author can “disappear,” and give the impression that what unfolds on the page simply happens naturally. On the other hand, it allows interiority without constricting the reader to the full bias of the characters’ desires and prejudices, and without the falsity of representation of thought registered inside quotation marks, as though the mind works in the rhetorically imposing way that stage representation requires. Moreover, free indirect style encourages the reader to be an active participant in the narrative rather than a passive receiver of “facts” and judgments, and thus further gives the sense that the narration is like life, in which there are no omniscient narrators to help us decide what to think about what we experience.

Nor is it an accident that Becky’s reflections take her to money as the determining circumstance. Becky acknowledges to herself what the society won’t admit, that virtue is somehow closely tied to money, and that money is the key element in the secular world. The focus on money, in fact, is the firmest mark that realist fiction is fundamentally secular. The fluidity of money is the counterpart to the new fluidity of “status” in the worlds represented by nineteenth-century realist fiction; its power to corrupt corresponds to the vision of the material world that Newman shows us.
