Attachment to the past like a broken clock
Gatsby is planning to meet Daisy again,which is moving him closure to his dream. Daisy has a green light on the end of the bank. The green light is a motif that symbolizes the dreams of Gatsby. Nick explains that moment as, ‘single green light,minute and far away’, (Fitzgerald 21) which explains the dock of Gatsby and the house of Daisy being across the way.
Gatsby wants Daisy to want him to,so he plans flowers for lunch. Nick explains the arrangement coming to his his as,”Two o’clock a green-house arrived from Gatsby,” (Fitzgerald 84) knowing the dreams of Gatsby and throw extravagant parties he throws for Daisy every weekend. Gatsby bringing so many flowers that it's like a green-house shows the dream coming closer.
Gatsby tries to save the mantel clock that is broken when it falls. This shows the attachment of the past because the clock is broken, like Gatsby and Daisy, but Gatsby wants his idealism,which is the past. Nick apologizes about the clock saying,” I’m sorry about the clock,” (Fitzgerald 86). Gatsby saves the clock after falling even though there is no way of repairing it.
