作者的得意之作,通话玫瑰与戒指于1855年正式出版,无所不能的黑杖仙女参加了帕夫拉戈尼亚国王子吉格略和公主露珊尔白的洗礼,并给与两个孩子幸福和礼物和些许不幸,结果吉格略王子的王位被其叔父篡夺了,公主露珊尔白的父母因叛乱相继去世,两个孩子失去了荣华富贵,在困苦中成长,相爱。

此为萨克雷的一部奇幻讽刺小说,最初出版于1854年的圣诞节期间。在某种程度上,小说批判的是君主制度以及上层社会对的态度并且质疑他们传统的审美和婚姻。故事的场景设置在一个虚构的国家里,故事的情节主要围绕着四个年轻的贵族男女之间的生活和财富展开,即两位公主和两位王子。故事的每一页都有一行总结全文剧情的诗歌作为标题。有趣的是,此书的第一版中的所有插画都是由作者本人亲自画的,因为当时作者想做一个插画师。

The Rose and The Ring is a satirical work of fantasy fiction written by William Makepeace Thackeray, originally published at Christmas 1854 (though dated 1855).It criticises, to some extent, the attitudes of the monarchy and those at the top of society and challenges their ideals of beauty and marriage.Set in the fictional countries of Paflagonia and Crim Tartary, the story revolves around the lives and fortunes of four young royal cousins, Princesses Angelica and Rosalba, and Princes Bulbo and Giglio. Each page is headed by a line of poetry summing up the plot at that point and the storyline as a whole is laid out, as the book states, as "A Fireside Pantomime". The original edition had illustrations by Thackeray who had once intended a career as an illustrator.

威廉•梅克比斯•萨克雷,是一位英国小说家,最著名的作品是《名利场》与狄更斯齐名,为维多利亚时代的代表小说家。此外还有《班迪尼斯》等。萨克雷的早期小说有的描绘上流社会各种骗子和冒险家,有的讽刺当时流行的渲染犯罪行为的小说,其中主要有《当差通信》(1838)、《凯瑟琳》(1840)、《霍加蒂大钻石》(1841)和《巴利•林登的遭遇》(1844)。  

William Makepeace Thackeray was an English novelist of the 19th century. He is famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. Thackeray, an only child, was born in Calcutta,India, where his father, Richmond Thackeray (1 September 1781 – 13 September 1815), was secretary to the Board of Revenue in the British East India Company. His mother, Anne Becher (1792–1864), was the second daughter of Harriet Becher and John Harman Becher, who was also a secretary (writer) for the East India Company.

In that city, if you wanted to give a child's party, you could not even get a magic-lantern or buy Twelfth-Night characters—those funny painted pictures of the King, the Queen, the Lover, the Lady, the Dandy, the Captain, and so on—with which our young ones are wont to recreate themselves at this festive time.
