||If the picture of Thomas Babington Macaulay, above, reminds you of the upper-crust British society that Oscar Wilde parodied so well, you have to remember that Macaulay came two generations earlier. In a sense, he was the upper crust of British society, and not the parody version.
Macaulay's views of British society are scattered throughout the history he wrote, and will be summarized in a later version of this page.
