This thesis examines the British aristocracy in the twentieth century as perceived in contemporary writing. It asserts that the image of the aristocracy is heavily marked by and perpetuated by the use of nostalgia. It also explores the idea that the contemporary members of the aristocracy utilize the existence of nostalgia as a way to commodify their past social history for profit.
