Abstract:

The History of Henry Esmond is a historical novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, originally published in 1852. The book tells the story of the early life of Henry Esmond, a colonel in the service of Queen Anne of England. A typical example of Victorian historical novels, Thackeray's work of historical fiction tells its tale against the backdrop of late 17th- and early 18th-century England -- specifically, major events surrounding the English Restoration -- and utilizes characters both real (but dramatized) and imagined. - wikipedia.org.
