An important theme in The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is the corruption of morals because of wealth. It doesn’t matter if one comes from old or new money, wealth will corrupt the morality of even the humblest. The first example of wealth corrupting morals is in the indifference to infidelity between the married Tom Buchanan and Myrtle Wilson. The next example of wealth corrupting morals is seen in Jordan Baker’s actions to keep her luxurious lifestyle. Third, Jim Gatsby’s pursuit of wealth lead to the corruption of his morals. Then, we will see Daisy Buchanan’s moral corruption due to her wealthy upbringing.

Everyone is hidden behind their mask, scared to show their real identity and afraid to be judged. Sandra Cisneros used the symbolic meaning of shoes and feet to taunt this human trait. Cisneros used shoes to represent mask and feet as our intrinsic nature. Cisneros used Esperanza to make the reason we hide behind our disguise more visible as she acknowledged one’s pain to endeavor to conceal our real intentions was to face others and to get protections by revealing Esperanza’s experience in her own perspective. To do that, Cisneros used shoes and feet to show the need to fit in, the protection they seek for, and the cruel reality of age breaking the mask.

In the essay “Famine, Affluence, and Morality” by Peter Singer, he argues that people who are more than financially stable will not donate as much resources to a less fortunate person where a less fortune person would rather give up half of what they may have to help people in need. His main argument through out this essay is that a person’s decisions are based on their moral values.
