Victorian Ghosts, 1852-1907: EN 4573 Collection


As Macaulay and Lytton were both part of the Whig party, added context on the Whig party is offered by Stephen M. Merrill in which he writes, "The liberalists of that day, both in England and in the colonies, were known as Whigs. They stood for the rights of the people, under constitutional government, against the aggressions of the crown. In the estimation of the Tory, the people exist for the government; but in the estimation of the Whig, the government exists for the people." (574-575)
