  1. Light is symbolic

“the lights in his house failed to go on one Saturday night – and, as obscurely as it had begun, his career as Trimalchio was over.”

Here we see Gatsby’s retreat from public’s eye. And in the next quote – Daisy’s rejection of Gatsby:

“Nothing happened…. I waited, and about four o’clock she came to the window and stood there for a minute and then turned out the light. “
