This is an unclear question. Wolfe's perception, he would argue, was clear of a personal perception of status. On the other hand, Wolfe extensively explores the perception of stauts in the United States as the quest for social status became the "Holy Grail" of American society in the post-World War II era. The dominant theme of this essay in Muave Gloves and Madmen this the driving desire for social status.
