The author pays a lot of attention to details in this novel, especially objects, houses and characters.

The colors green and gold are repeatedly mentioned throughout the book, perhaps signifying wealth and money.

The overall idea is a bleak one, almost dystopian in certain scenes.

The novel discusses the illusion of the American dream, and how different social classes can influence its pursuit and outcome.

Overall, a truly well–written classical work of art, that was unfortunately only appreciated years after the author’s death.
