I partially disagree. Yes Gatsby was a wealthy, wealthy man. But Gatsby only spent his riches for one reason and one reason one; for the attention of Daisy Buchanan. He bought His mansion for the sole reason that it was across the bay from Daisy. He threw lavish parties for the distinct possibility that Daisy Buchanan might show. He spent his life, his riches for the one his heart belonged to and waited for. Everything thing else was in vain to him.
But other than that, awesome article! Very nice out together and written. :)
