Como el grueso de la obra de Galsworthy, "El patricio" aborda el mundo de la clase alta inglesa en la primera mitad del siglo XX; su ensimismamiento y su impermeabilidad respecto al resto de clases sociales.

Al igual que en el universo de los films de James Ivory (Una habitación con vistas, Regreso a Howards End, Lo que queda del día, etc.), se describe aquí un exclusivista ambiente aristocrático con su galería de personajes altaneros o pintorescos, enriquecido, en este caso, con una interesante dimensión política.

Galsworthy disecciona el anacronismo de esa influyente familia al producirse un conato de rebelión en el seno de la misma por parte de sus retoños jóvenes (la sensible lady Bárbara y el elitista Eustace Miltoun, desgarrados por amores prohibidos); rebelión ante la que la familia cerrará filas de inmediato a fin de cortar las alas a los transgresores y encarrilarles por los senderos obligados.
