Gatsby does not love Daisy, he is in love with the idea of Daisy. He notes about Daisy, “Her voice is full of money,” (120).

The aristocrats, such as Daisy, are born with an advantage; they have had money all their life. They know how to bribe their way out of trouble, while the people without the same privileges are left to suffer.
Therefore, I am shocked to see how horrible the King and the Duke really are. Theme The theme of these chapters is “trust your gut.” The reason I say this is because Huck knew the King and the Duke were frauds. When Huck picked them up they were coming fresh off a recent scam.
He is a fraud. Carraway exposes how Tom made his wealth which is a very controversial topic during the 1920’s.

Tom’s inheritance produced negative traits that he abides with as shown through his cockiness. Furthermore, Tom is a man of muscularity rather than a man of the mind which was considered a “negative trait” by a number of men who believed “money earned without labour was an invitation to corruption” which later in the novel leads to Tom’s downfall

We are suddenly drawn into a deeper context.
