9. Motifs: Storm Clouds Ahead.

The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1925
Famous for: Wild parties, loads of cocktails, the green light at the end of the dock, a hit-and-run that ends it all.

Whenever F. Scott Fitzgerald makes a point of the weather, pay attention. There’s more brewing than just a few storm clouds. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald uses storm clouds and high humidity to tell us what’s in store for his characters. In this story, needless to say, what’s in store is rarely good.
