After dealing with color representing sadness, it is only appropriate to move onto to the color representing a much harsher emotion, anger. It is no surprise to learn that the color representing rage and fury throughout the novel is red. After Gatsby and Tom get into a verbal fight over where Daisy’s true love lies, Daisy drives on the way home and losing control, kills Mrs. Wilson. Therefore, the “red gas-pumps sat out in pools of light” referred to in the novel relate back to not only her being killed right in front of the gas station, but also Gatsby being shot in the pool at the end of the story.
F. Scott Fitzgerald had the creative and extraordinary way of writing The Great Gatsby based on compassion, death, and betrayal. The author even included themes like justice, power, and greed. Through the fanciful parties that Gatsby threw, the love that Daisy Buchanan and Gatsby showed, and the society that loved wealth and money, The Great Gatsby is expressed through past and present. This nine chapter novel demonstrates different social classes, money, domination, and love. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays a strong message through this chapter without a title, but yet “The End of the Green Light” connects the beginning of the novel to the end.
The Demise of the American Aristocracy Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby takes place in the 1920s’ elite New York spheres where East Eggers’ family riches represent the aristocracy, while West Eggers epitomize nouveau riche. Within this New York world the color white appears in the East Egg, whereas outside this bubble the absence and desire for white is prevalent. The narrative is told through the eyes of Nick, a West Egg transplant, who immerses himself into the social scene, interacting with both East and West Eggers. Nick’s cousin is Daisy, who is married to Tom and friends with Jordan, who provide the East Egg perspective.
There are various passages regarding the effects of characters struggling with illusion and reality. As Nick and Gatsby are driving, Gatsby tells Nick all about his worldly lifestyle and about all of his accomplishments, such as being educated at Oxford and receiving a war decoration from “every Allied government - even Montenegro, little Montenegro down on the Adriatic Sea!” (Fitzgerald). Gatsby also describes how he “lived like a young rajah in all the capitals of Europe — Paris, Venice, Rome — collecting jewels, chiefly rubies, hunting big game, painting a little” (Fitzgerald). Nick believes Gatsby to be lying; he thinks that all of his accomplishments and experiences sound too outrageous to be true.
Genealogist of Jay, Daisy and Jordan The overall extension and profound analysis on Jay Gatsby within The Great Gatsby introduced a broad statement to me, as I way reading the book. Mrs. Gatsby is a man whom has come a long way from his childhood. Having lived in a small Rural town in the outskirts of the wild North Dakota, he had a hard childhood. He and his family were very poor when Jay was introduced to the world, meaning that he would have to bring himself up from this tough state. Which is exactly what he did, yet how he did it was trough the illegal distribution of items that were ether not his to give away.
The great American novel, The Great Gatsby by Scott F. Fitzgerald was brought to a big screen by director Baz Luhrmann, famous for Moulin Rouge and several other movies. The Great Gatsby perfectly portrays Fitzgerald’s critique of the American society in the 1920’s and also brings us the story of Jay Gatsby, who is putting in all of his effort to retrieve the memory of his love from the past. It follows Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) who left Mid West and came to New York City in 1922. This was an era of rising stocks and loose moral. Nick, however, chasing his own American dream ends up drawn into this world of mystery, corruption and impossible love.

Color is everywhere. Although color may not seem important, they might have a greater, deeper meaning.
