The Great Gatsby Chapter 5

"Turning a corner, I saw that it was Gatsby's house, lit from tower to cellar"(Page 81). That is very interesting because what significant would the light hold? "It happens to be a rather confidential thing"(Page 83). Does that mean that Gatsby is still not sure what he wants to trust Nick with? "She turned her head as there was a light dignified knocking at the front door"(Page 86). That light is like the hope for him I think. "Daisy's embarrassed too."(Page 87). Nick does notice a lot of things about people and things. "But I lost most of it in the big panic-the panic of the war"(Page 90). So what did he spend it all on? "His bedroom was the simplest room of all- except where the dresser was garnished with a toilet set of pure dull gold" (Page 91). I think that is interesting because that is describing the color that Gatsby is associated with. "You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock"(Page 92). That green light says that Gatsby can observe what he wants to. "The gray window disappeared as the house glowed full of light"(Page 94). That seems interesting because it is showing that there is hope coming for them.
