Mr. Joseph in a state of excitement

Becky's second appearance in the character of Clytemnestra

William Makepeace Thackeray

Wood engraving

c.1861

Illustration for Chapter 67, Thackeray's Vanity Fair

(Becky's second appearance as the seductive Clytemnestra does not appear as a theatrical piece as in the earlier chapter. Rather, she has became the character of Clytemnestra herself, seducing Jos and through clever manipulation, infirms him psychologically.)
