Colors are used exquisitely throughout The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald’s ability to portray emotion and tendencies through color is astonishing. By bringing all of these aspects together, Fitzgerald was able to create a novel that would withstand the test of time.
“ My idea is always to reach my generation. The wise writer writes for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmasters of ever afterward.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald
