The Great Gatsby: on symbolism
One of the great symbols of The Great Gatsby is the green light at the end of Daisy's deck across the water from Gatsby's back yard. Think about this symbol. What makes this green light so great? What could it represent?
I want to hear your opinion on this famous symbol. Sure, I've read what critics have said about it. But what do you think about it? What do you think it means? When you first read the novel, did you notice the green light? Refer to specific places in the novel as you tell me what you think about Daisy's green light.
