Color symbolism is really popular in novels written during the 1920s One such example is Scott Fitzgeralds novel The Great Gatsby There is much color symbolism in this novel but there are two main colors that stand out more than the others The color green influences the story greatly Green shows many thoughts ideas attitudes and choices that Gatsby has throughout the story White too would play an even more important role in the novel as it is used to represent all the characters where the color green is more a symbol of the relationship between Daisy and Gatsby The color green as it is used in the novel symbolizes different choices the character Gatsby can make during his life The green element in this novel is taken from the green light at the end of the dock near Daisys house The color itself represents serenity as in everything is perfect This warns Gatsby that he should not pursue his dream of getting Daisy back because his chance has passed and everything is as it should be More so than other colors in the novel such as gold or blue with the exception of white the color green influences the story greatly Green shows many thoughts ideas attitudes and choices that Gatsby has throughout the story Another symbolization of the color green which contradicts the first is the meaning go Where as in my first example the color green showed that Gatsby should leave well enough alone in the this example the color green is associated to a traffic light signal where the color green is symbolic of the go action One can interperet this as meaning Gatsby should go for his dream without hesitation It implies that Gatsby and Daisy are meant to be together and nothing should stop Gatsby from his destined happiness and love with Daisy It inspires hope a seemingly false hope for Gatsby that he is on
