The Great Gatsby help!?

Postby cliamon5 » January 25th, 1972, 9:28 am

I am writing an essay and I need some help its an analysis paper on a specific passage that was assigned to me from the great Gatsby. I have gotten started on it and I have talked about the green light and it resembles the american dream and daisy and also money. BUT I ALSO WANT TP TALK ABOUT HOW IN THE PASSAGE THAT THERE IS LOTS OF IMAGERY OF DIFFERENT KINDS OF LIGHT. HOW CAN THIS TIE INTO MY THESIS CLAIM? HELP REWRITING THESIS STATEMENT?!?! HERE IS MY THESIS: Fitzgerald uses Imagery and metaphor to present the green light as a symbol of the American dream. REMEMBER NOTICE THE LIGHT IMAGERY HOW WILL OR CAN IT TIE INTO MY THESIS HERE IS MY PASSAGE : Already it was a deep summer on roadhouse roofs and in front of wayside garages, where new red gas-pumps sat out in pools of light, and when I reached my estate at West Egg I ran the car under its shed and sat for a while on an abandoned grass roller in the yard. The wind had blown off, leaving a loud, bright night, with wings beating in the trees and a persistent organ sound as the full bellows of the earth blew the frogs full of life. The silhouette of a moving cat wavered across the moonlight, and turning my head to watch it, I saw that I was not alone--Fifty feet away a figure had emerged from the shadow of my neighbor's anion and was standing with his hands in his pockets regarding the silver pepper of the stars. Something in his leisurely movements and the secure position of his feet upon the lawn suggested that it was Mr. Gatsby himself, come out to determine what share was his of our local heavens. I decided to call to him. Miss Baker had mentioned him at dinner, and that would do for an introduction. But I didn't call to him, for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone--he stretched out his arms toward the dark in a curious way, and, far as I was from him, I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward-- and distinguished nothing except a single green light minute and far way that might have been the end of the dock. When I looked once more for Gatsby he had vanished and I was alone again in the unquiet darkness PLEASE HELP ME PLEASE!! THANK YOU!!

THis passage doesn't really have anything to do with your thesis. Try sparknotes or shmoop.com. Both sites have good study guides on this book that may help you.
