Fitzgerald, a master of symbols, makes the color green significant in his novel:"The green, introduced first as the light at the end of a dock, has ambivalent interpretations. Green typically is associated with growth, spring, and new life. It signals “Go! Go! Go!” presumably for any generation. It is the color of money. All of these meanings apply in The Great Gatsby. Primarily, it is connected with Daisy, who turns out to be an unworthy dream. Colors, then, not only vivify images and create a picturesque vista for the reader but also facilitate Fitzgerald’s thematic commentary about reality and dreams."
