A pathetic fallacy is an attribution of human emotions or characteristics to inanimate objects or to nature. On the day of Gatsby's funeral, the weather is a a grey morbid mixture of rain and loss . The rain represents the loss of both what Gatsby had hoped for and Nicks loss of his friend; the theme of disenchantment pervades.
