Victorian Era Social Classes

By: Shakira Prestwidge

Social Classes

In the Victorian era there was the working and middle class then there were the aristocrats. The working class was considered the lowest of the low and often faced poverty. The middle class was not very involved and seldom faced poverty. The aristocracy or "upper class" never faced poverty. The Victorian era in England began with the Normans. The Normans were a barbaric people not going to stop for anyone/thing. The aristocracy has always been a fatal enemy of freedom oblivious to the world around them. The Victorian aristocrats or upperclass used more than they produced which left the working class constantly needing more. The aristocracy where finely educated and respected the fine arts, if an aristocrat was gifted in the fine arts it was not common knowledge. The nobles were a very generous people with the exception of a certain duke. The women of the nobility were often recognized by their grace and beauty.
