be, “As moral suppression and greed declared war", because of it's direct connect to the novel. Morals weren't took into consideration when husbands were having affairs on their wives and wives were having affair on their husbands. And the greed aspect of the phrase has to do with the part where Daisy ran over her husband's mistress, Myrtle and she killed her by mistake. She had so much greed on not wanting to share her husband but she was cheating too. Your wealth seems to be a ticket to freedom on crime just like this phrase from the poem, "While crime was ignored by the money it spends", people in this novel committed murder and affairs and it seems as if because of their titles and wealth it doesn't phase them.

In The Great Gatsby, money drives the world goes around, can provide privilege of living in the world without consequences and gives the character and status in society, but at the end, money can’t buy happiness or love. I believe symbolism is a big thing Scott. Fitzgerald tries to convey like for example the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are a pair of fading, bespectacled eyes painted on an old advertising billboard over the valley of ashes. They may represent God staring down upon and judging American society as a moral wasteland, through the novel never makes this point explicitly. Instead, throughout the novel, Fitzgerald suggests that symbols only have meaning because characters instill them with meaning. The connection between the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg and God exists only in George Wilson’s grief-stricken mind. This lack of concrete significance contributes to the unsettling nature of the image also there is full shadowing throughout the whole book that led up to till the end of the Novel.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
