  • I think the  green light  that hangs at the end of Daisy's dock, and   Gatsby  bought his house in order to be able to see it each night, the green kight most   obviously   symbolizes   his unwavering love for Daisy.   "...a figure had emerged from the shadow of my neighbor's mansion and was standing with his hands in his pockets regarding the silver pepper of the stars".   (Firzgerald 18)
  • Chapter 3
  • I think the Valley of Ashes    represents the moral and social decay that results from the uninhibited pursuit of wealth, as the rich indulge themselves with regard for nothing but their own pleasure.   "About half way between West Egg and New York the motor road hastily joins the railroad and runs beside it for a quarter of a mile, so as to shrink away from a certain desolate area of land. This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat . . . where ashes take the forms of houses. . . ." (Fitzgerald  27)
  • Chapter  5
  • The eyes    may   represent     God staring down upon and judging American society as a moral wasteland."But above the gray land and the spasms of bleak dust which drift endlessly over it, you perceive, after a moment, the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg. The eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic. . . . But his eyes, dimmed a little by many paintless days under the sun and rain, brood on over the solemn dumping ground."(Fitzgerald 29)
  • Chapter 7
  • I think Gatsby's house partys represents Gatsby trying to get Daisy attendtion to try and talk or just to see her. "I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby’s house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited—they went there. . . . Sometimes they came and went without having met Gatsby at all, came for the party with a simplicity of heart that was its own ticket of admission." (Fitzgerald 49)
  • This   clock    that Gatsby catched  after almost dropping it in front of Daisy represents time lost with Daisy and his now finally making it up or catching it.   "Luckily the clock took this moment to tilt dangerously at the the pressure of his head, whereupon he turned and caught it with trembling fingers and set it back in place. Then he sat down, rigidly, his elbow on the arm of the sofa and his chin in his hand." (Fitzgerald 86)
  • I think Gatsby house represents Gatsby trying to be the wealthiest person and buy a big house and try to get Daisy's attention.  "atsby’s house. . . . A brewer had built it . . . and there was a story that he’d agreed to pay five years’ taxes on all the neighboring cottages if the owners would have their roofs thatched with straw. Perhaps their refusal took the heart out of this plan . . . he went into an immediate decline. His children sold his house with the black wreath still on the door. Americans, while occasionally willing to be serfs, have always been obstinate about being peasantry."(Fitzgerald
