This Great Gatsby is created using the entire text of the book.
The Great Gatsby is brought together in this art print to create an illustration that ably captures the vacant decadence so prominent in the Jazz Age. Fitzgerald’s words converge to form an image of a private moment between Jay Gatsby and his elusive siren – the green light. To Gatsby, the green light signifies the proximity of his one true love Daisy, but is also the hue of money and a symbol of the search for monetary wealth. It is shown here sparkling upon an empty expanse, as if to signal how futile and empty the pursuit of money truly is. Meanwhile, Gatsby is partially turned away as if pensively considering how near, and yet so far, his tenuous goal is. So strong is the power of that consuming object behind the green light, that Gatsby finds himself unable to completely turn away from it. It is an illusion which holds him in its sway and one he must follow through no matter how terrible the final conclusion may be.
The Great Gatsby is a classic so large and expansive in its popularity that few can escape the allure of this tragic American story. The heartbreaking symbol of the green light is powerfully presented here and lends color to the zeal driving Gatsby forward to that emerald point.
