Storyboard Text

  • Gatsby's house
  • Gatsby's Yellow car
  • Gatsby Knocks Over Clock
  • His past is so secreted and gossiped that there are multiple different stories and every room in the house is a representation for his personality and past. "There was music from my neighbor's house through the summer nights. In his blue garden men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars" (Fitzgerald 3)
  • The Green Light
  • This is Gatsby's infamous yellow car. The car symbolizes him as a story. Flashy exterior and a gorgeous interior, to show how good of a person he was under the expensives clothes. Both the car and Gatsby were built from part to part, coming from the bottom. ""Listen. I just got here a minute ago, from New York. I was bringing you that coupe we've been talking about. That yellow car I was driving this afternoon wasn't mine--do you hear? I haven't seen it all afternoon." ( Fitzgerald 7)
  • Valley of Ashes
  • The knocking over of the clock is a way to show where the time went. Once sturdy and upward, simply knocked over by Gatsby and it laid on the ground, as if it went away or died. Daisy also did not seem to care, which represents how she does not care about Gatsby and his effort to restore that lost, knocked over time. "I'm sorry about the clock" (Fitzgerald 5)
  • Eyes of TJ Eckleburg
  • The green light represent his unattainable goal, Daisy. He views a green light coming from Daisy at great distance. The green is to symbol Daisy's infatuation for money. He sees her at distance because she is far away emotionally, he also sees the light because she is always on his mind, regardless of where she is. “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning-- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” (Fitzgerald 9) 
  • The valley of ashes is a  rendition, of the outside world. Gatsby came from a similar place, but has completely been in a different state of thinking since meeting Daisy. Daisy was the reason he changed his entire life. The valley of ashes is a place of desperation. Myrtle cheated on her husband and died trying to get Tom. There is no joy or hope mentally which reflects physically. Gatsby has not been back because his hope and thought of Daisy has driven him to his pinnacle of success. "The valley of ashes is bounded on one side by a small foul river, and when the drawbridge is up to let barges through, the passengers on waiting trains can stare at the dismal scene for as long as half an hour" (Fitzgerald 2)
  • The eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleberg have immense meaning. They tear up upon the sight of the valley of ashes. The eyes tear up on the view of the valley of ashes because the hard working people lived there. Most of west egg was new money, the bootlegging era, while east was old money most likely dating back to slave days. The eyes are the eyes of god, and they are far from a place of wealth, crying to see it's people live in shambles. " It was near dawn at this point, and Wilson was staring into the eyes of T. J. Eckleburg when he mentioned God" ( Fitzgerald 8)
