F.Scott Fitzgerald makes a lot of different analogies and adds different themes that were present during his time period that reflect through The Great Gatsby. Throughout this novel, Fitzgerald portrays characters in different manner that develops themes at the sametime. In The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway is introduced to his conspicuous neighbour who he later finds out is in love with his cousin Daisy who is married to Tom Buchanan, A friend of Nick from college.  This inclined leads to conflict between the characters. What makes these conflict different is the amount of money they have and how it comes into play within the conflict as well as the theme. Fitzgerald uses Tom and daisy as well as the valley of ashes and the separation of west and east egg as symbols to illustrate the theme of hollowness among the upper class in the Great Gatsby. First, Fitzgerald uses Tom and daisy as a symbol to illustrate the theme of hollowness among the upper class . daisy represents the result of what happens when exposed to such large wealth. It is evident that it took a negative toll on her because of what she says on pg. 17, “i hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Tom on the other hand symbolizes the impact of money. This is shown when to hits his mistress myrtle for talking about daisy. She specifically says ” daisy! daisy! daisy!, i’ll say it whenever I want to!”. This shows toms impact as far as money because it shows how because he has money he has a sense of power and authority. This incline effects Daisy as well.Fitzgerald also uses The valley of ashes as a symbol for the hollowness of the upper class . The valley of ashes shows the reader the reality of the time period and the reality of the american dream at the time. On Page 23, The valley of ashes is described as ” a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens; where ashes take the form of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and, finally,with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling  the powdery air.”  This one quote gives the reader a idea of a shitty place were poor people work in a inhuman area. To connect all of this to the theme of money, all these people who work in the valley of ashes are what allow the rich to live there lavish lifestyles. The valley of ashes also shows the outcome of the people who attempt to pursue the american dream a honest hard working manner. The american dream being to get wealth. Finally, fitzgerald uses the separation of east and west egg as a symbol to illustrate the hollowness of the upper class. West Egg is were new money people reside and was described as “the less fashionable of the two”. While on the other hand east egg was the complete opposite of west egg, being comprised of old money, classy people such as tom and daisy buchanan. These two different areas come with characteristics to their respective areas. West egg was represented as loyalty and sincerity based on Gatsby’s actions, taking the fault for myrtle’s death for daisy as well as being hopeful for daisy . East egg was portrayed as careless along with lack of heart because of their sense of security behind their money. This was shown when Tom and Daisy simply move to avoid Gatsby’s funeral. overall these separation shows the effect money had on people’s morals during the great gatsby that lead to its hollowness. In conclusion, Fitzgerald Uses Tom and Daisy as well as the valley of ashes and the separation of east and west egg as symbols to illustrate the theme of the hollowness of the upper class.
