Great Gatsby Lifestyles


Great Gatsby Lifestyles Essay, Research Paper

The wealthy lifestyles of the Buchanans and Miss Jordan have morally corrupted

their lives. Money has created boredom for them. Their ways of perceiving life

and their altitudes towards other is vain. But each of them shows off their

vanity in different ways. Tom Buchanan, for example, believes that white

civilization is going to pieces and will be utterly submerged by the other

races. The Rise of the Coloured Empires has reinforced his perception that his

race is more civilized. This book has made Tom believe that it is all scientific

and true. He does not realize that he is a racist. He thinks that just because

the white race has more wealth, that they should be in control of society. Miss

Baker shows off her vanity in her actions. In the vehicle with Nick, Jordan

insisted she receive special privileges because of her wealth and celebrity

status. Her comment, "They’ll keep out of my way," implies that other

drivers will keep out of her way. She has a spoiled altitude towards because she

thinks she owns the road. She is also hypocritical because she hates careless

people even though she is a careless driver herself. Daisy Buchanan expresses

her vanity in the words she says. For example, she once said, "I’ve been

everywhere and seen everything and love everything," implying that she has

been around the globe and seen everything there is to offer. She thinks that she

can solve the problems of the world because she has gone to a few more places

than other people have and that she knows more than other people do. Her wealth

has given her the opportunity to visit extraordinary places, but it has also

given her boredom. She has taken her money for granted and now she has too much

free time. Money has given the Buchanans and Miss Baker everything they had ever

wanted. It has enriched their lives and their lifestyles. But it has also made

their altitude towards others vain. Their wealth has revealed their vanity for

the rest of the world to see.
