Doctor T.J Eckleburg
Nick describes Gatsby's car as being "a rich cream color, bright with nickel" (Fitzgerald 64). The color yellow symbolizes riches and money and in this quote it shows that Gatsby spent a lot of money on this car. The cars in this book also connect to the theme of Disregaurd of Others, and towards the end of the book Gatsby's car ends up killing someone.
In the book car crashes are a symbol/motif and are closely related to Gatsby. Nick is explaining what he sees according to a car crash when he states, " in the ditch beside the road, right side up, but violently shorn of one wheel, rested a new coupe" (Fitzgerald 53). This car crash happened after someone was leaving one of Gatsby's party while they were drunk.
The eyes of T.J. Eckleburg is being described as "blue and gigantic...they look out of no face, but,instead, from a pair of yellow spectacles" (Fitzgerald 23). This is an advertisement for an eye doctor, but it is being used to say that it is seeing everything that is happening, the lying and the cheating.
