    Please fill answer below The eyes of T.J. Eckleberg symbolize ________________.

    Correct Answer
    God
    Explanation
    The eyes of T.J. Eckleberg symbolize God. This is because they are described as "blue and gigantic" and are positioned on a billboard overlooking the Valley of Ashes. Just like God's all-seeing eyes, they seem to watch over and judge the characters in the novel. They represent a moral and spiritual presence, observing the corruption and moral decay of the characters and the society they live in. The eyes also serve as a reminder of the loss of traditional values and the emptiness of the American Dream.
