These work in parallel and come together as part of the samesociety the wealthy upper class. Straight away we see this as world acontradiction, as the glittering surface impression of these wealthy tribe conceals their true nature as an immoral, cargonless andunsympathetic society.This novel clearly does move on two l evels. The author enables us tolook into the unalike worlds of money and romance (and whether ornot they can exist together), as it is not only a story of superficial productiveness, but overly of lost love and the use of wealth to regain it.These themes alone are a contrast, as money is a matter of the mindand love a matter of the heart.Although Fitzgerald glamorises the lifestyles of the rich nonage, healso asks us to hesitancy how attractive money really is, by conveyingto us the dying and unhappiness that huge wealth can causeunderneath its dazzling exterior.We are led through the various events of the novel by our narrator, prick Carraway, who is also Gatsbys neighbour.

The richthemselves believe that money can debauch them everything, including, asin Daisys case, a guilt-free conscien ce.An underlying contradiction of the novel is that Gatsbys rich guestsall thought that happiness rested in money, but the verity was that itdoes not, and never will. For Gatsby, the source of his happinessrested in love, and whilst the rich minority took everything,including love, for granted, Gatsby never did, and it proved to be hisdemise. The novels biggest contradiction shows that although love isthe source of life, in this instance it has killed a man in his questto find it.Kate CockburnBibliography The Great Gatsby, F.Scott Fitzgerald (Penguin ModernClassics).
