Daisy and Tom Buchanan are old money their families have been rich for many generations and so they live on East Egg island. Gatsby explains to Tom that he lives across from him, and that is definitely not a coincidence. Fitzgerald wants to introduce what Nick once knew, and contrast it to what he found when he went East.

However, after Gatsby went off to war, they never got back together again. There is he billboard with T. At the time, the Great Neck was home to many of the wealthiest people on Long Island. This failure suggests that there is an impossible, uncrossable line between the past and future, separating Gatsby from Daisy, which he cannot cross.

In the first chapter Gatsby is reaching out for the light.
Colors are representative of many things. The book The Great Gatsby communicates symbolism with the many colors the story line uses and the different way portrays these colors through the settings and plots. Hope is the beautiful thing that Gatsby embodies and believes in: hope for the future, for Daisy. She is an illusion of new beginnings, love, longing and desire. Miscellaneous Symbolisms Besides the colors and people there are many things that add to the meaning and the depth of the book.

The Eyes of Doctor T. Gatsby constantly tries to outdo Tom and impress Daisy, because at the end, all that matters to him is Daisy. Thus, the eyes also come to represent the essential meaninglessness of the world and the arbitrariness of the mental process by which people invest objects with meaning.

The fact that Nick isn't fooled would suggest that others, too, are not so taken in by Jay's efforts. In other words, Daisy is willing to provide love in exchange for money. They are able to look to the future instead of being held back in the past. One thing is that it means is something to hope for, to reach out for, and a hope of new.
