Daisy symbolizes innocence and purity, which is why she is described wearing white clothing and having white powder on her skin. Even though Daisy represents purity, she becomes corrupt throughout the novel. The color black resembles Daisy as a result of Daisy running over and killing Myrtle. 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).

“With a love that the wingéd seraphs in Heaven/ coveted her and me.../chilling/ My beautiful/ Annabel Lee ” (11,15-16). The author’s poetic language is able to enhance the message of the theme as well as portray the compulsiveness of the speaker towards his lover that is unquestionably depicted within the stanza the speaker begins to contently delineate his lover, but then rapidly changes his tone and instead shoots accusations at the angels in heaven for tearing apart him from his beloved.
