dc.description.abstract <p>That the women from the novels under discussion (<em>The Great Gatsby, Dodsworth, The Mother's Recompense</em>) are of the upper class makes a difference; as Scott Fitzgerald observed, the rich "are different from you and me ... and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand" ("<em>The Rich Boy</em>" 152).1 As I've studied the novels and the plight of women in general, I have needed to remind myself often that class, just as surely as time, is a variable separating me from these women. It has been an interesting exploration.</p>
