Storyboard Text

  • Chapter 1: The Green Light
  • Chapter 2:  Valley of Ashes and Eyes of  DR T.J Eckleburg
  • Chapter 3: Gatsby's House
  • The "green light" in chapter 1 represents Gatsby's hopes and dreams, and how he's trying to reach it. It's important because Daisy is his hope and dream.
  • Chapter 5: The Clock
  • The "valley of ashes" represents a hell-like place from which no one can escape from, and they're in poverty forever, and the "eyes of t.j eckleburg" are a greater force watching them. They're important because they witness all the lies and conflicts surrounding the main characters.
  • Chapter 7: The Heat
  • Gatsby's house in chapter 3 represents the irony of how he constantly throws parties to ensure he won't be lonely, yet he's always lonely since he has no one who truly cares for him. This is important because the only person he wants to care for him is Daisy
  • Chapter 7: The Yellow Car
  • "The clock" in chapter 5 represents Gatsby's nervousness when he sees Daisy after many years. This is important because it shows how a man as rich, famous, and powerful as Gatsby can stutter and be weak in front of Daisy.
  • The "heat" in chapter 7 represents the tension that the main characters intake, and makes them release all of their emotions that should have kept secret to avoid confrontations. This is important because all of the emotions released create separation between characters.
  • The "yellow car" in chapter 7 represents a murder and crime weapon. It's important because  with this vehicle, Gatsby and Daisy become criminals.
