The Great Gatsby
F, Scott Fitzgerald
In the time of the book Gatsby and his neighbors are all rich from the start and on the other side of the lake are the newly rich and the middle class live one another part of town so basically all these people live in different places depending on how rich they are, nowadays rich people live together around in the same places and it doesn't matter how long they have been rich for and even sometimes rich people live in the same places as lower class people. Gatsby loves throwing giant parties and having people around his house because sometimes he gets lonely in his giant mansion. I think that if Gatsby was transported to 2014 he would definable be very shocked by the fact that interracial and same sex marriage, because in that time it would be very shocking and was extremely rare. I think that Gatsby would embrace the norm that people from different classes can hang out together and live in the same neighborhood because that is something that makes his relationship with daisy even harder. Well one very main social norm in the Great Gatsby is how people from the upper class attend a party every weekend at his house this does exist in the present like how people go partying on the weekends.
