Throughout the novel

Throughout the novel. the Great Gatsby written by one out of the best novel person is F. Scott Fitzgerald, the shallowness and hollowness of the upper class is persistently shown in the story and the movie even through tom’s disrespect and segregation for people in the lower class, daisy love and addiction of gold and money and tom and daisy lack of respect for their morals by cheating on each other which leads to the tragic downfall of jay Gatsby. Although in The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald offers up commentary on a variety of themes justice, power, greed, betrayal, the American dream, and so on. Of all the themes, perhaps none is more well developed than that of social stratification. The Great Gatsby is regarded as a brilliant piece of social commentary, offering a vivid peek into American life in the 1920s. Fitzgerald carefully sets up his novel into distinct groups but, in the end, each group has its own problems to contend with, leaving a powerful reminder of what a precarious place the world really is. By creating distinct social classes old money, new money, and no money — Fitzgerald sends strong messages about the elitism running throughout every strata of society. The first and most obvious group Fitzgerald attacks is, of course, the rich. However, for Fitzgerald (and certainly his characters), placing the rich all in one group together would be a great mistake.
