Thought out the whole novel the color yellow symbolizes Gatsby’s wealth and has something to do with Daisy. Around the world the color yellow usually means happiness and in “The Great Gatsby” the author stated, "now the orchestra is playing yellow cocktail music" (Fitzgerald 42). Gatsby was having another party to show his money, while the music had a rich tone and the people there felt that the music was soothing. Also in the novel, Fitzgerald mentions, "two girls in twin yellow dresses" (44), and it is to talking about the happiness. The two girls in the yellow dresses are admiring Jordan, the golden girl, and are jealous of how amazing she looks.
Scott Fitzgerald uses a larger part throughout this book is similes. This type of figurative language is also used quite a lot in order for the reader to better understand and grasp Fitzgerald 's idea for this book. By the comparisons being made it makes it easier for the reader to understand the books concept and the meaning of the book. “ Men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.” this gives the reader a clear idea of the type of parties there were in this area. During these parties there would be the people that were invited and there would also be a large sum of people that weren’t invited that showed to the party and a large part of that did not even know who the host was.
In literature, colors are often used to create a deeper meaning of a book. In The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the analysis of color can influence the meaning of the story and help create a deeper understanding of the characters. One color mentioned is the color yellow. One example of the color yellow is its portrayal through two girls wearing yellow dresses at one of Jay Gatsby’s parties. The girls and their yellow dresses are used to predict happiness, yet are also used to predict caution.
Beside Juan Valdez commercials, the FNC and DDB employed print ads and sponsorship to market and expand the reach of Columbian coffee and Juan Valdez to a larger audience.

He’s rich, he is old money he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth. Tom also physically powerful, a college footballs star for Yale, and someone whom Daisy calls a "brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen” (pg.15). Tom believes that he has natural superiority. He's better than everyone else because of his family, his "blood," his station in life. When he wins his little battle of wills with Gatsby, he drives the metaphorical knife in just a little bit more when he insists that Daisy drive home with Gatsby.
For example, the reason Gatsby threw all his parties were to get the attention of the love of his life and form a life with her, to Gatsby, a green light mentioned in the book meant hope, the hope and dream to have the one and only girl he wants in his life. Also, in a party taken place at Daisy and Tom’s, by the quote I used, it is easy to understand how big and fancy their house looked, the house every one of us dreamed of. We see the same at Gatsby’s party, his house is described as big, luxurious, pools, and very often parties, all the parties connect with the American Dream. We also know that Tom and Gatsby were both wealthy, for one, Gatsby did attend to Oxford. It also represents the American Dream because, the parties took place at Gatsby’s, and Gatsby lived in West Egg where most wealthy people lived.
In order to show his attitude towards the party, Fitzgerald uses imagery to emphasize the party’s glossy nature and uses diction to hint to the reader that the party is overdone. During the description of the party, Fitzgerald uses words which evoke images of a bright and fancy party, but which also show how that is only on the surface. The party is described as cheerful with “the air is alive with chatter and laughter”, giving the sense that everyone was enjoying themselves. As the party continues, Nick narrates that “Laughter is easier minute by minute” and the reader gets the impression that it is a great party. Then Fitzgerald distorts that image as he describes the attendees as “men and girls came and went like moths”.
He speaks in a poetic way. He digs deep into himself and brings out the emotions out. Romeo loves Juliet very much he thinks that she is very beautiful. In Act 1 Scene 5, when Romeo was at Lord Capulet 's party, he says “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!” According to me in this situation, Romeo means that Juliet is so beautiful that she shines more than the torches. In act 1 scene 5 line 43-44 “It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night, like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear”.
The original, “Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey, reflects the lyrics in a romance, and reassurance feeling.

For example, in the episode when Jay and Daisy meet for the first time, the camera angles help to demonstrate their real emotions. The story is supported by music because it reflects the atmosphere. For example, the melodies played during the party bring the atmosphere of twentieth-century America. The costumes provide the opportunity to focus on the social status of the characters. For instance, Daisy’s dresses demonstrate that she belongs to the upper class.
It is a Rolls-Royce and is described as being, “a rich cream color, bright with nickel, swollen here and there in its monstrous length with triumphant hatboxes and supper-boxes and tool-boxes, and terraced with a labyrinth of windshields that mirrored a dozen suns.” (Fitzgerald.69) The extravagance of his car represents his wealth, the West Egg wealth, which is considered, “new money” (Fitzgerald.6) when contrasted to East Egg’s old money. It shows just how lavishly and luxuriously Gatsby lives in comparison to the elegant way of life Tom, Daisy, and everyone else lives in East Egg. His car symbolizes his place in society. He is extremely rich yet he will never be completely accepted into Daisy’s world because of their customs and way of living. This can be seen with the impressions of Gatsby’s car; those living in The Valley Ashes admire it to quite an extent, however, when Tom takes a look at it, he merely thinks of it as a, “circus wagon.” (Fitzgerald.129) This proves the fact that Gatsby will never be considered good enough for anyone in East Egg due to the differences in their
Nick says, "The lights grow brighter as the earth lurches away from the sun, and now the orchestra is playing yellow cocktail music, and the opera of voices pitches a key higher. Laughter is easier minute by minute, spilled with prodigality, tipped out at a cheerful word". (Great Gatsby) This historical event also known, as “bootlegging” is exactly the cause of Gatsby’s luxurious possessions. The concept of The American Dream became reality. Fitzgerald 's story is fiction; however, it is well influenced by the social norm of the
Although Webb had already hired another singer for his band (Charlie Linton), he too was impressed by Ella’s talent. Because of this, and despite her “gawky and unkempt” appearance, he gave her the opportunity to sing with his band at a dance at Yale University as a test run. Webb was quoted for saying that “if the kids like her, she stays”. She was a raging success and true to his promise, Chick hired Ella to travel with the band. She recorded “Love and Kisses” with the band in 1935 and was soon a regular artist at the Savoy, one of Harlem’s hottest nightclubs.
