2. Even more nervous now that he is in the same room as Daisy, what does Gatsby almost knock off the mantelpiece? Could it be a symbol of anything?

Gatsby knocks a clock of the mantle place. It is a symbol of time, all the anguishing time he has spent waiting for a meeting with Daisy. There is a little foreshadowing as well here as the clock hits the ground!
