The White Card
After Gatsby’s party, things start to get crazy due to the amount of alcohol consumed by the partiers. Everyone gathered around at the sound of a car crash, “But the wheel’s off,” this showing that the men in the car were too drunk to even realize what had happened having to have someone who is sober tell them the obvious (Fitzergald 55). This symbolizes power and wealth.
Gatsby decides to take Nick into the city, driving above the speed limit. Showing Gatsby's ranking, he, "Taking a white card from his wallet.....Right you are," this is also showing the readers that Gatsby must have connections (Fitzergald 68). This symbolizes social ranking.
Under the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Daisy, with Gatsby by her side, carelessly drove into the darkness. What she didn't see or know until it had already happened was, "Myrtle Wilson, her life violently extinguished," this meaning that she was killed (Fitzergald 137). One can see that Daisy killed Myrtle Wilson, but Gatsby takes the blame for her. This being the theme of Decline of Morality on Daisy's part and Reckless Disregard for Others.
