Myrtle thinks the money is aiding her escape from her poor husband and life, but it leads to her death. Gatsby also thinks that money will solve the problem of Daisy not marrying him. His lavish extravagant parties and cars lead to his death because it makes him well known and easy to find. From a young age, Daisy thinks that money is the only way to solve any and all
When we use wealth as our vehicle to self fulfillment, it easily distracts us from our original goal. In our efforts, it is easy to lose sight of our aims and compromise our principles to attain the wealth we desire. It is evident that even amidst his riches, Gatsby is unfulfilled. The wealth he hoped to use to strengthen his claim to honour has undermined his chances of being worthy of it. Instead of giving, wealth has stripped him of his morality and trapped him in a lifestyle that demands he only be pulled further into immorality.
Leonhardt stated, “The fact that the rich earn enough money to save money allows them to make investments that other people simply cannot afford” (545). So, only the people with money have control of the American economy. While, the lower class should make sure the wealthy gets wealthier or else our economy with become unbalance. Now with Olsson assistance, the reader understands Leonhardt’s article that it is possible to succeed in American and Sam Walton is a good example but to be successful people must short change others that come in their way. This is a negative way of seeing how success can be achieved but it is reality on how America’s society is at this moment.
While new money became more common, the perfect American became an unachievable mixture of old money and new money characteristics. Because transcendence has become unreachable, it is scorned in The Great Gatsby through a corruption of common transcendentalism imagery. While hardworking industrialists worked hard to transcend and earn their pace, those born rich kept their wealth, having already transcended society. When one attempts to use the American Dream to rise socially, their lack of birthright to wealth leads to mockery. When one attempts to forgo social transcendence and utilize hard work to transcend intellectually, they are mocked for their lack of understanding surrounding modern America.
According to Will Rogers, (1879), which says “Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people that they don't like.” (Will Rogers). This means, that there are a lot of people who are using money but that they are not obtain it. Those humans are cheating on other people in order to form relationship with them and have new friends. This money they do not deserve it, they earn it to show other people that they are own the best things, and they are more special than other people. In addition, people are buying many things that they don’t need to use them.
I believe that Fitzgerald’s parallel to Gatsby and Zelda’s parallel to Daisy says something important about their relationship. If we go off of what happened in the book, Fitzgerald was, at one time, enamoured with Zelda, and became wealthy to win her over. It worked, and the two of them got married. However, Fitzgerald soon realized that it was not him Zelda loved, but his wealth and success. This must have devastated Fitzgerald, as Gatsby’s life ended because of Daisy.
Fallen Between the Money Stacks At what cost should someone achieve the status of rich and luxurious? Should they have to abandon their friend, family or their dreams? Money is the focal point of life, it always has been, and it will always be the focal point of life. People think that having money will make them look better and more appealing, but in reality it is repelling. People who treat others lowly based on their income are not people who are focused on what really matters in life.
Austen’s description of wealth analysis For some people it has no meaning, for others it’s all they can think about; sometimes it helps bring about good, but it also causes great harm. The main idea here is that wealth can brainwash people. Some people might think that wealth can buy everything. That’s why they can get so caught up in it.
Jane Austen’s “Pride and prejudice” is a romantic novel that was considered between relationships and love between individuals.
