Honestly Over Lies
In today's world lies are easily thrown but honestly is something rare. Along those lines
comes trust which sometimes can mean more than love or even mean the same thing. However
trust is something that is earned: not handed. This Great American novel, The Great Gatsby
shows untrustworthy actions and deception from within the lives of the characters. F. Scott
Fitzgerald uses rhetoric to show emphasis on trust by, deep characterization, dialogue, tone.
In the beginning Jay Gatsby starts but introducing himself, on a wrong note. He starts off
with lies about his background but why? “My family have been prominent well-to-do people in
this Middle Western city for three generations”(Fitzgerald2), it's clear when someone is shown in
a book, their background is eventually going to come out; there's no need to lie about it.”I am the
son of some wealthy people in the Mid West-all dead now”(Fitzgerald 64).The idea of trust in
the Great Gatsby contradicts because at the end of the book his father comes and then appears to
show he isn't dead and isn't rich. Fitzgerald does a good job in making it clear that what the
characters say is soon to be changed.
In the book, there isn't just one liar and everyone else sin free, Daisy hops on...
