Gold Chapter 1 The front was broken by a line of French windows, glowing now reflected with gold Chapter 5 An hour later the front door opened nervously and Gatsby in a white flannel suit, silver shirt, and gold tie hurried in. His bedroom was the simplest room of all except where the dresser was garnished with a toilet set of pure dull gold. Chapter 6 Go ahead, answered Daisy genially, and if you want to take down any addresses heres my little gold pencil.

Color Implications wealth reward / honor luck sunshine wisdom spiritual illumination (think halos) COLORS: White Chapter 1 [Daisy & Jordan] were both in white and their dresses were rippling and fluttering. Daisy: Our white girlhood was passed there.

Chapter 3 Dressed up in white flannels I went over to his lawn . Chapter 4 She was dressed all in white and had a little white roadster and all day long the telephone rang in her house. Chapter 7 Daisy and Jordan lay upon an enormous couch, like silver idols, weighing down their white dresses against the singing breeze of the fans. High in a white palace the kings daughter, the golden girl What does white imply? Daisy

What thoughts does kings daughter invoke? How about golden girl? She shares her name with a flower. What does that imply? COLORS: Green Chapter 1 Involuntarily I glanced seaward and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away. Chapter 4 Sitting down behind many layers of glass in a sort of green leather conservatory we started to town. Chapter

5 Gatsby: You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock. Now it was again a green light on a dock. Chapter 7 In the sunlight his face was green. Chapter 9 Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes us. Color Implications money jealousy nature life / vitality amateur

(Jordan)

Chapter 5 I think he revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from [Daisys] well-loved eyes. Chapter 7 Now I was looking at it again through Daisys eyes. It is invariably saddening to look through new eyes at things upon which you have expended your own powers of adjustment. Her frightened eyes told whatever intentions, whatever courage she had, were definitely gone. Dr. T.J. Eckleburgs eyes Chapter 2 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. Chapter 7 I turned my head as if I had been warned by something behind. Over the ashheaps the giant eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg kept their vigil. Then as Doctor T.J. Eckleburgs faded eyes came into sight down the road Chapter 8 Standing behind [George], Michaelis saw with a shock that he was looking at the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg which had just emerged pale and enormous from the dissolving night. God sees everything, repeated Wilson. Owl Eyes Chapter 3

A stout middle-aged man with enormous owl eyed spectacles was sitting somewhat drunk on the edge of a great table, staring with unsteady concentration at the shelves of books Absolutely real have pages and everything Dont ask me, said Owl Eyes, washing his hands of the whole matter. Chapter 9 Owl Eyes spoke to me at the gate. I couldnt get into the house, he remarked. Neither could anybody else. Why, my God! They used to go there by the hundreds. He took off his glasses and wiped them again outside in. The poor son-of-a--, he said. Wasteland the landscape About halfway between the 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 piece of land. 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. Then the valley of ashes opened out on both sides of us. the characters They were carless people, Tom and Daisy they smashed up things and creatures and then repeated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made. Gatsby No Gatsby turned out all right in the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreamed that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive shadows and short-winded elations of men. Sunlight & Shadows

For a moment the last sunshine fell with romantic affection upon her glowing face; her voice compelled me forward breathlessly as I listened then the glow faded, each light deserting her with lingering regret like children leaving a pleasant street at dusk. We slid out from the mass of the station into the glowing sunshine. Over the great bridge, with sunlight through the girders making a constant flicker upon the moving cars Gatsby got himself into a shadow. It occurred to me that this shadow of a garage must be a blind. When he realized what I was talking about, that there were twinkle-bells of sunshine in the room, he smiled like a weatherman.

The room, shadowed well with awnings, was dark and cool. Death A dead man passed us in a hearse heaped with blossoms, followed by two carriages with drawn blinds and by more cheerful carriages for friends. Myrtles body was wrapped in a blanket and then in another blanket as though she suffered from a chill in the hot night lay on a work table by a wall. The chauffeur he was one of Wolfsheims protgs heard the shots. It was after we started with Gatsby toward the house that the gardener saw Wilsons body a little way off in the grass, and the holocaust was complete.

Time Chapter 1 In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that Ive been turning over in my mind every since. Chapter 2 All I kept thinking over and over was You cant live forever. Chapter 4 One October day in nineteen- seventeen

Chapter 5 Luckily the clock took this moment to tilt dangerously at the pressure of his head He had been full of the idea so long, dreamed it right through to the end, waited with his teeth set Now, in the reaction, he was running down like an overwound clock. Chapter 6 Cant repeat the past? he cried incredulously. Why, of course you can! The ending Most of the big shore places were closed now and there were hardly any lights except the shadowy, moving glow of a ferryboat across the Sound. And as the moon rose higher the inessential houses began to melt away until gradually I became aware of the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors' eyes - a fresh, green breast of the new world. Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby's house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder. And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown

world, I thought of Gatsby's Wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy's dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night. Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further... And one fine morning So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
