In literature, there is often symbols and items that seem trivial and do not pertain to the plot but are actually quite important because they represent something that is important to the plot. In the Great Gatsby, a book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jay Gatsby is a millionaire who is in love with a young debutante named Daisy. Daisy’s cousin, Nick, moves to Long Island where they live.

Even though Daisy is married, she begins an affair with Gatsby. Everyone believes that Gatsby earned his money honestly, but it is stated that he was a bootlegger, so he actually was dishonest in his earnings. The best symbol that first proves that Gatsby is a fake and a bluff is looking at the books in Gatsby’s library.
