Learning Goal: I’m working on a english writing question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

What hint of symbolism in Chapter Five does Fitzgerald make, when after meeting Daisy, Gatsby stumbles and almost drops the clock on the fireplace mantle at Nick’s house?

Could this possibly be tied to a deeper theme within the novel itself?

no PLAGARISM. Only from the book The Great Gatsby. Answer question in a paragraph
