He throws overgenerous parties, hoping that the love of his life, Daisy Buchanan, attends. Gatsby’s life is filled with various colors which signify the messages Fitzgerald is trying to convey. Color symbolism plays an important role through the novel, The Great Gatsby. In the novel, the color green detonates Gatsby’s hopes and dreams, but in other characters it represents envy, jealously, and money. When Nick returns home from his cousins house, he spotted Gatsby outside on his dock: “—he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way…I glanced seaward—and distinguished nothing but a green light, that might have been at the end of a dock” (Fitzgerald 21).
Fitzgerald makes it apparent throughout the novel that Gatsby does everything in hopes to compete against Tom and impress Daisy. For example, Gatsby throws lavish parties every weekend with the hope that Daisy will stumble in, and then they will be reunited and return to their old ways. Additionally, when Gatsby moves to the West Egg, he purposefully purchases an extravagant mansion near the Buchanan’s mansion where he can view their emerald light on his dock. Throughout the duration of The Great Gatsby, Gatsby noticeably envies Tom Buchanan, Daisy’s husband, for seizing the life that Gatsby was not able to achieve. Gatsby longs to return to the passionate relationship they had five years prior and maybe even create a family similar to the family Daisy has with Tom.
"… after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house—just as if it were five years ago,” (Fitzgerald 59). His obsession with Daisy led him to believe that what she had with her husband was nothing and that her love for him never ceased, even after all the time had passed. “I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn 't believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer cared,” (Fitzgerald 84). In the end, it was Gatsby who suffered the consequences of having an unattainable dream and never accepting reality for what it was. He spent his life imagining his future with someone who didn’t do the same, and when
Gatsby became worried that Tom would harm Daisy for her murder of Myrtle, so Gatsby travels to Daisy’s house to check on her when he stated, “I waited, and about four o’ clock she came to the window and stood there for a minute and then turned out the light” (Fitzgerald 147). On the surface, the 1920’s seem like an enjoyable time to live, but in actuality, there was as much deficiency as good during this
Not that the letters had done anyone good when Theodore Dior had gotten himself into a car crash in Paris and died after his son was before and before his daughters was even born. Fortune had gone back to using her maiden name after he died, only letting her children have their father 's surname. She never talked about her children 's father, but she kept the box engraved with his initials, T.D, next to her bed. Along with the letters were one or two photos, a wedding ring, a single lock of golden brown hair, and books. Sometimes Fortune took the box out and opened it and held the lock of hair very gently in her hands before

In the book, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby is reunited with the love of his life Daisy Buchanan. In the previous chapters Gatsby's character is more confident and easygoing. When Gatsby is around Daisy he is a bit nervous and tense. For insistence, when Daisy is taking a “tour” of Gatsby's house with Nick and Gatsby, Nick's thoughts on Gatsby's behavior were this, “After his embarrassment and his unreasoning joy he was consumed with wonder at her presence.”(71) Although, there are moments were Gatsby seems more at ease but most of the time I believe he simply doesn't want to say or do anything to scare Daisy away. It is evident that he wants to impress her and convince her that he is what she wants in a partner.
The books are there just like decorations and collecting dust. The main reason he is doing something like this is to impress his lover also called Daisy. The girl who lives across the bay from him, he throws all these big parties, and have all these things to impress daisy his life long love. So everything he does is is for his one and only dearing Daisy. Although Gatsby is still a liar and a delusion.
He also said, “All things that we ordained festival Turn from their office to black funeral.Our instruments to melancholy bells,Our wedding cheer to a sad burial feast.” This clearly states that he is only worried about the wedding preparations and mentions the wedding several times which shows his attention is more on the wedding than it is on her death. Paris was the least affected about Juliet. His relationship with Juliet was forced upon her and he knew it. However he did not truly love her and only wanted her for the family fortune and the reputation. He says,Have I thought long to see this morning’s face,And doth it give me such a sight as this?.
About a week after Howleen’s suicide attempt, Clawd and Clawdeen organized a little investigation to track down TVC. Clawd had intended the investigation to be much like the one for Harmony’s murder, but since the circumstances were different this was either going to be really easy or really difficult. It also didn’t help that not all of the original investigation team could be there. Abbey needed to stay home to care for Icer, Howleen was out for obvious reasons, Valentine could not be reached, and Draculaura was at a family reunion. So, it was just Clawd, Clawdeen, Heath, Jackson and Frankie, though soon Duece offered to tag along.
