“They look out of no face but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose.”
“He reached up on tiptoes and peered over a circle of heads into the garage which was lit only by a yellow light in a swinging wire basket overhead.”
“The eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic-their retinas are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose.”
“Gods eyes see everything,”
The yellow in Dr. TJ Eckleburg eyes as they watch over The Valley of Ashes. This is significant because God mainly sees the good in people. The bright yellow in Eckelberg only see the good in valley of ashes and that is the people. That is why the town/ place is so run down nothing else matters there. This relates to Gatsby when he is trying to get what the green light is. He hosts these parties but does not participate, looking for what he wants the most but it just is not there yet.
The Eyes of Dr T.J. Eckelberg play a major role in this novel. Mainly they represent the eyes of God. In the valley of ashes these eyes are the only thing still colorful and standing. Every Time one of the main characters pass the eyes some thing very important happens, or bad. An example of this is when on page 170 his eyes emerge and this was during the time of Myrtle getting hit by the car. Some people around knew the truth which the eyes saw but no one confessed. This makes the reader relate to real life things. The eyes as in God see everything. When they are brought up you get a feeling something is about to happen.
