Thackeray, W.M.: Pendennis. v1 29 Jan 2008
The full title is The History of Pendennis. This is one of Thackeray's later works. From Wikipedia:
Pendennis (1848–1850) is a novel by the English author William Makepeace Thackeray. It is set in 19th century England, particularly in London. The main hero is a young English gentleman Arthur Pendennis who is born in the country and sets out for London to seek his place in life and society. In line with other Thackeray's works, most notably Vanity Fair, Pendennis offers an insightful and satiric picture of human character and aristocratic society. The characters include the snobbish social hanger-on Major Pendennis and the tipsy Captain Costigan. Miss Amory and Sir Clavering are somewhat reminiscent of Becky Sharp and Sir Pitt from Vanity Fair.
