By turning it off the pink light Daisy is choosing money over love as her final choice. Daisy has proven herself to be materialistic and to fulfill her need for wealth she marries Tom to remain a member of old money upper class, not for
The green light symbolizes the everlasting love that Jay has for Daisy. It shines every night reminding him of the love that he feels so deeply for her and the hope that they will one day be together again (although that will never happen). Igarashi states, “Perhaps the most powerful symbol of the novel, the green light that hangs at the end of Daisy’s dock represents everything that is possible and forever unattainable for Gatsby. At the end of the first chapter, Nick witnesses Gatsby reaching out to the light, not realizing the connection to Daisy. By the novel’s end, once the green light is forever extinguished for Gatsby, Nick compares it to the green glowing America that early explorers had first glimpsed after months at sea.
Outline Prompt 1. Body Paragraph 1: Topic: Pleasure Quote: "Orgy-porgy," the dancers caught up the liturgical refrain, "Orgy-porgy, Ford and fun, kiss the girls…" And as they sang, the lights began slowly to fade—to fade and at the same time to grow warmer, richer, redder, until at last they were dancing in the crimson twilight of an Embryo Store. Red is an important color here, remember when Foster declared that embryos are like photographic film and they can only stand red light. It 's no coincidence that these two scenes go together; the adults are compared to little embryos inside their bottles. Quote: "We had Elementary Sex for the first forty minutes," she answered.
She is hardheaded and security minded and laid-back. She chooses to give up on love by remaining in a relationship with Tom, which proves that wealth and security was what was important to her. She had more interest in Gatsby’s money than in Gatsby himself. She used him to indulge in a fairytale and discarded him when he revealed his grand plan to Jordan, Nick and Tom. The case could be made that she was a victim of the circumstances of her marriage to Tom nonetheless she had ample opportunity to escape his clutches.
Morally, it would have been right for Tom to leave Myrtle alone, since she is married and if he wanted to be with Myrtle he should have got a divorce instead of playing with two lives. Even though, Tom may seem crazy he is not fully a lunatic about Myrtle because he recognized if he married her his superiority will drain. Ella Kaye is another character in The Great Gatsby that screwed morality. Ella Kaye was the mistress of Dan Cody. Screwed morality was evident in the quote “The none too savoury ramifications by which Ella Kaye, the newspaper woman, played Madame de Maintenon to his weakness and sent him to sea in yacht, were common property of the turgid journalism of 1920” (Fitzgerald, 96 ).
Despite the anguish she felt, Daisy followed through with the wedding, because she knew that it meant she would gain more wealth, and power. The night before her wedding day, she receives a letter from Jay Gatsby, the man she presumably loved. His letter is enough to tear her to pieces, and almost enough to change the course of her life. She then allows herself to wallow in sadness and alcohol, so much so that she reveals her true emotions, and breaks her expensive pearls, regardless of the prosperity and wealth they represented: “Here, deares." She groped around in a waste-basket she had with her on the bed and pulled out the string of pearls.
Trying to impress others by hiding your true self is a trait that thousands of people acquire. A natural want to seem better than others often causes people to fake their behavior and suppress their true colors. It is our colors that define us, but many use other palettes to change the way they appear to the public. In The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald uses color imagery to illuminate traits and intentions of specific characters. White, silver, and gold are attributed to Daisy to exemplify her front of innocence and effort to hide her immoral nature, while yellow, grey, and brown are ascribed to Myrtle to illustrate her veneer of wealth that tries to cover her poor, despairing lifestyle.
Throughout the novel, Gatsby is regarded as a self-made gentleman who doesn’t drink at his own parties due to his morals. However in this passage, through the descriptions and reflections of Nick the reader discovers how Daisy’s love had corrupted his morals. Before coming to the East, Gatsby’s aspiration was to achieve the American Dream but in this passage we discover the fact after his love with Daisy, all he ever wanted was to win Daisy as if she was an award of excellence. He keeps trying blindly as “he did not know that is was already behind him, somewhere in that vast obscurity beyond the city”. This quote supports the claim as Gatsby is being ignorant to the truth as he is not willing comprehend the fact that he could not accomplish his only goal in life.
Gatsby could not ignore that fact Daisy not only is a married woman. Daisy also has her own child with Tom making the act of leaving Tom more impossible. Greed also parallels to the idea of corruption leading to the fall of Gatsby. When finally reaching the goal a new probability, one that he claims all of Daisy for himself is reflected in the green light that can deter the too optimist Gatsby. After living the dream, it starts coming apart with Myrtle's death and imminent danger foreshadowed by Nick.

My hair made me easily identifiable, and therefore harder to avoid any guards roaming around. Everyone had heard of the golden-haired prodigy, locked in the castle for her whole life. But the joke was on them, when Pejiane covered her hands in a charcoal from a hidden container in my duchess, and set to work turning the gold into an ashen
Everyone makes mistakes, and me and my family will have our ups and downs… I just wanted my family to see me as the man of the family, you know?
