The Great Gatsby

"Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone"…"just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had"(5).Authors use different symbols to represent the personalities of characters.In the novel, The great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald uses different colors to represent the facade of his characters Daisy, Gatsby, and Nick.
There are certain colors that describe the way a person may act or feel.Daisy gives off the vibe that she is a very innocent, ditsy person and loves to have fun with everyone and anyone.Daisy wears white because it makes people think that she is innocent and sweet.She wears white so people will believe that she is happy and everything is perfect when the reality is that her life is empty and dull and lacking a sense of substance.When shefirst met Gatsby, she always excited young officers from Camp Taylor demanding the privilege of monopolizing her for one night, "anyone just for an hour"(79).Daisy seems to be the type of girl everybody wants."She went with a slightly older crowd- when she went at all"(80).Daisy always had wild rumors going around about her, but by the next February, she was getting married to a fellow named Tom Buchanan.So after Daisy decides to settle down, her "innocence" comes back to her.Daisy does a lot of things to bring attention to her.This is her facade to make her feel better about herself and her just wanting people to like her better.
Another character, Gatsby, is described with bright colors."…Through period bedrooms swathed in rose and lavender silk and vivid with new flowers…"(96).He has bright colors throughout his house to impress Daisy.He does everything her can to win her away from Tom."…Shirts with stripes and scrolls and plaids in coral and apple green and lavender and faint orange with monograms of Indian blue&q
