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.
