Symbol #1

For my first symbol i chose a disco ball. I did this because Gatsby Throws very extravagant parties all the time. The symbol is all brightly colored and sparkly. This is because Gatsby's parties are the most famous parties of all time he goes all out on everything because he is very rich. He also does this because he thinks maybe at one point the parties will have caught Daisy's eyes and she will go to his place and he will see her.

Symbol #2

Gatsby is all about money. Money means that he has a chance to get Daisy. So thats why i chose a house literally made out of money. Everything that he does is a little to much. A good sized house that is made out of money is going a little to far. But that is why it fits Gatsby so perfectly.

Quote From the Character

"I thought you inherited your money." "I did, old sport," he said automatically, "but I lost most of it in the big panic – the panic of the war." I think he hardly knew what he was saying, for when I asked him what business he was in he answered, "That's my affair," before he realized that it wasn't the appropriate reply. "Oh, I've been in several things," he corrected himself. "I was in the drug business and then I was in the oil business. But I'm not in either one now." ( Pg. 97). Gatsby is actually a good guy. His intentions are always good and heartfelt. Gatsby has only gotten in to crime and anything bad because of Daisy. The crime gets him money and the money will get him Daisy. Or at least that is what he thought would get him Daisy. He doesn't want to seem like a bad guy in front of Nick though. That is why he lied.
