All of this money is solely for Daisy. 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). To Gatsby, Daisy represents what it is to live rich: a life of pleasure, money, and fame. Gatsby does not want it, he needs it, and in order to do that, he needs to win Daisy’s love.
Gatsby’s dream of loving Daisy is ruined by the difference in their social statuses. Gatsby ends up resorting to crime to make enough money to impress her, and materialism to match his lifestyle with hers. Yet the division between the two different classes causes major conflict. 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.

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. Huck knew the two were no good, but he went on with helping them anyway.
Tom Buchanan fools the readers into thinking that he is living the American Dream, the definition of perfect and no one else is like him, but in reality that is not true. He is a fraud. Carraway exposes how Tom made his wealth which is a very controversial topic during the 1920’s. Tom was “opposite of the self-made man” which was negatively looked upon during the Roaring Twenties (Alberto 21). Tom’s inheritance produced negative traits that he abides with as shown through his cockiness.
The hypocrisy because they have just caused the character pain, so they go and make sure that they feel the same pain. “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” is a quote that suggests Revenge is hypocritical because you become the person you despise the most.

The narrator says, “Crooks pressed forward some kind of private victory… Crooks’ face lighted with pleasure in his torture” (Steinbeck 70).

Since the beginning of the book Huck knew that Pap was a terrible person and finally got what he deserved. Another set of antagonizing characters was the King and Duke, two con artists who knew how to make money by cheating it off of people. After many sick attempts at stealing inheritance money, the duo decided to turn Jim in for the money reward after saying that they wouldn’t. Their plan backfired, however, and after being unable to prove themselves as the true heir to the inheritance, they were punished. Huck sees them finally getting their punishment and states “I knowed it WAS the king and the duke, though they was all over tar and feathers, and didn’t look like nothing in the world that was human” (Twain 174).
Although, the clichés were mechanical in this story. With the character we became annoyed, when the robbers used phrases like, “dead meat”, “bright boy” and “capiche” (34-36). As a mechanism it worked to make us feel a sense of superiority to the robbers, as Anders did. The language becomes laughable, until Wolff kills the character so bluntly. We are suddenly drawn into a deeper context.
