Storyboard Text

  • The Green Light, which represents the future according to Gatsby
  • The Valley of Ashes, which represents "hell" or the bottom of the earth due to how bad it is
  • The Eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleberg, which represents God
  • "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic that year by year recedes before us." (Fitzgerald 9).
  • Gatsby's House, which represents Gatsby's mind
  • "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 2)
  • The Clock Gatsby Knocks Over, which represents Gatsby's time lost with Daisy
  • "'God knows what you've been doing, everything you've been doing. You may fool me but you can't fool God!' Standing behind him Michaelis saw with a shock that he was looking at the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg..." (Fitzgerald )
  • The Weather, which represents Gatsby's feelings
  • "Gatsby's house was still empty when I left-the grass on his lawn haad grown as long as mine." (Fitzgerald 9)
  • "Luckily the clock took this moment to tilt dangerously at the pressure of his head, whereupon he turned and caught it with his trembling fingers and set it back in place." (Fitzgerald 5)
  • "Outside the wind was loud and there was a faint flow of thunder along the Sound...As I went over to say goodbye I saw that the expression of bewilderment had come back into Gatsby's face, as though a faint doubt had occurred to him as to the quality of his present happiness." (Fitzgerald 5)
