When Gatsby points out the green light on her dock to Daisy, Nick notes, “Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever. Compared to the great distance that had separated him from Daisy, it had seemed very near to her, almost touching her. It had seemed as close as a star to the moon. Now it was again a green light on a dock. His count of enchanted objects had diminished by one.”
What does Nick mean, and what has changed for Gatsby now?
