Definition of Theme
Society and Class is the state of being where you are sectioned off by the amount of money you make or have, and the category you're put in because of it.
Chapter 1
"When ever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had." - Nick Carraway

Society and Class of The Great Gatsby
Society and Class clashes through out the Great Gatsby.

BY: Alexis Thomas
Chapter 2
"I told that boy about the ice." "Myrtle raised eyebrows." "These people you have to keep after them all the time."- Myrtle Wilson , Nick Carraway.

This quote illustrate society and class because Myrtle thinks she's so much higher than others because her lover is upper class.
Chapter 1
"And I hope she'll be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool." - Daisy Buchanan

This quote illustrate society and class because most beautiful women with class in the 1920's were just like Daisy Buchanan. They weren't being there on women; did what they husband ask,and sometimes didn't get respect.
Chapter 7
"An Oxford man!" He was incredulous. "Like hell he is! He wears a pink suit."- Tom Buchanan

This quote illustrates that the society and class clashes; Gatsby want to hang with upper class but Tom not having it.
Chapter 9
"Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made." - Nick Carraway

This quote illustrates society and class because it shows that the Buchcanans are not happy one minute, but when something goes down they pack up like nothing never happened, and leave their mess for others to clean up. Thats the society we live in.
In the Modern Age society and class was very important. The upper class people had to have the best thing and hang out with people who did as well. As you can see in the pyramid; they have the best at the top and its decreases down to lower.
