Storyboard Text

  • chapter 1: the green light
  • chapter 2: Dr. T.J. Eckleberg
  • chapter 7: Gatsby's car
  • The green light in great Gatsby represents the American dream because of the way Gatsby reaches out longing for it. "he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way... I could have sworn he was trembling" (Fitzgerald 26).
  • chapter 2: Mrs. Wilson
  • The eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleberg represent the eyes of God watching over the valley of ashes. "But his eyes, dimmed a little by many paintless days under sun and rain, brood on over the solemn dumping ground" (Fitzgerald 28).
  • chapter 2: valley of ashes
  • Gatsby's car represents the rich because it was described as a gorgeous which is how most rich live gorgeously. "At nine o’clock, one morning late in July Gatsby’s gorgeous car lurched up the rocky drive to my door and gaveout a burst of melody from its three noted horn" (Fitzgerald 68).
  • chapter 8: the weather
  • Mrs. Wilson represents sin because she does many things that are bad.  "...mingling immediately with the cement color of the walls. A white ashen dust veiled his dark suit and his pale hair as it veiled everything in the vicinity—except his wife, who moved close to Tom" (Fitzgerald 30).
  • the valley of ashes represents hell/suffering because most of the people there suffer due to the lack of money they have. This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air. (Fitzgerald 27)
  • The weather represents gatsby's emotions every time he feels down or happy the weather reflects his emotions. "It was nine o’clock when we finished breakfast and went out on the porch. The night had made a sharp difference in the weather and there was an autumn flavor in the air. The gardener, the last one of Gatsby’s former servants, came to the foot of the steps" (Fitzgerald 164).
