Gatsby and Daisy in the past
A clock may not seem so special but to Gatsby there is a special meaning. "his eyes glanced momentarily at me, and his lips parted with an abortive attempt at a laugh. Luckily the clock took this moment to tilt dangerously at the pressure of his head, whereupon he turned and caught it with trembling fingers and set it back in place" (Fitzgerald 86). The clock symbolizes Gatsby's attachment to the past and how he still loves Daisy. The clock is shattered to show that there love will never work.
Gatsby wants everything with Daisy to go back to how it used to be. He wants her to love him just as much as he loves her. "After she had obliterated four years with that sentence they could decide upon the more practical measures to be taken. One of them was that, after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house--just as if it was five years ago" (Fitzgerald 109). Gatsby's dream is to move away and be with Daisy just like it used to be.
Daisy and Gatsby had come in contact in the past and they did not even know one another. "The officer looked at Daisy while she was speaking in a way that every young girl wants to be looked at some time, and because it seemed romantic to me and I have remembered the incident ever since. His name was Jay Gatsby, and I didn't lay eyes on him again for over four years-- even after I'd met him on Long Island I didn't realize it was the same man" (Fitzgerald 75). Gatsby and Daisy had meet before they even knew each other. Was their love meant to be?
