suggestion of further research

hooray--so the people who provide us with the synopsis of this story are from Harvard---guess what they all have in common--money.  And the story deals with class issues--not coming from the middle to upper class--in fact, so far I've seen zero examples from analysis which would qualify as an apt reading of this story.
