The Great Gatsby Project
By: Ricky Ngo
Blue is sadness, but also more specifically restlessness in this book. "In his blue gardens men and girls came and went" (Fitzgerald 41). Gatsby held many parties to get Daisy to come. In doing so, Gatsby invites many guest who talk about rumors of Gatsby. Although a lot of people are in and around his house, Gatsby only thinks about Daisy. "Slowly the white wings of the boat moved against the cool blue limit of the sky." (Fitzgerald 118). Blue is a sad color and Gatsby own many blue item and find himself unhappy without Daisy. Even with his wealth he is unable to buy happiness. "... ghostly birds began to sing among the blue leaves" (Fitzgerald 144). Unable to achieve his dream, Gatsby is depress not knowing what to do. This quote is kinda foreshadowing his end because now he had nothing to live for.
