If it wasn’t for the mist we could see your home across the bay….You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby. Chapter 5, Gatsby has told Daisy that when he sees the green light, he thinks about her. It is a symbol for Daisy, his greatest desire. But interestingly the green light, and Daisy’s home, is invisible now because of the mist.
