To his own misfortune, Jay Gatsby is the most abhorrent character in the novel, due to the immoral ways in which he tries to capture Daisy’s affection. One loathsome way that Jay Gatsby attempts to appeal to people of high social ranking, like Daisy, is by recreating his past. In the renowned novel, Gatsby took Nick Carraway out for a drive in his car one morning. They began to converse which led to Gatsby telling Nick his life story. He told Nick not to believe any rumors about him floating around his parties, probably so that Nick would only believe the lies told to him directly by Gatsby.
In modern society, deception is most prominently the root of political corruption. That could be in comparison to Hamlet with King Claudius. Claudius lies to his people and murdered his biological brother, King Hamlet. He displays little remorse as he declares, “My crown, mine own ambition, and my queen” (165). Likewise, President Trump also received power through mysterious circumstances.

The novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a classic 20th century story -that period was also known as the “roaring twenties”- which critiques the vision of the American Dream people in general have. At that time, the idea of a free market, and industrial revolution provided the opportunity for many to seize the market and people were starting to see that they could become rich without having any type of restriction. New York city was the centre of this wealth-creating society. After the war, this movement generated new opportunities and ambitions for people wanting to start a wealthy upper class life. That period of time was all about alcohol, partying, gambling, fashion, and money.
As a character, Nick himself is somewhat difficult to observe, since we see the whole novel through his eyes. Secondly, Nick states the he is the only honest person he ever known, but it can be agreed that Nick is actually a dishonest character. Finally, Nick isn’t the main character (protagonist) and it becomes evident that he is actually also an unreliable narrator. It would become evident that one shouldn’t believe everything Nick says, especially his “high-and mighty” asides, but you can take his larger characterisations and version of events seriously. Each of the following paragraphs will substantiate the statement that Nick Carraway acts as both the unreliable narrator and dishonest character.
Some people become too clouded by his wealthy image that they do not see him as anything but the embodiment of greatness. Nick Carraway as a narrator is unreliable, but as a friend, he is not honest to the other characters, even Gatsby who he idealises. An unreliable narrator is a narrator who tells you a story that you cannot take for the stated value. In the case of The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway is an unreliable narrator. He is not insane, but lying and deluded.
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.
The culprits also play an important role in unfolding the truth in many detective films because their input has a significant impact on any given story. The rule states “in life (a culprit cannot) be a butler or a chambermaid”, however in The Third Man Harry Lime’s butler has an important role to give input to Holly. Originally the story was “I heard everything but did not see it, and saw him being dragged along the street with three men”, but soon Holly began to develop a conspiracy of the mysterious third man. The film deviates from Todorov’s original rules because the butler is potentially seen as a culprit based on the evidence. Also, the butler did not attend Mr. Lime’s funeral in the beginning of the film which implies that he is a potential culprit.
What made it even better is that the man, Gatsby, was some sort of a criminal. Or I’m not sure if he actually was a criminal, but a weird man in any case, always wearing those pink suits. After that Daisy became much more fun, maybe the man just made her happy. She never told me about it, but everyone knew Tom had cheated on her from the beginning. I cannot understand why she didn’t just leave him, but that’s probably just who Daisy is.
Huck lets the two lie and cheat because allow them will give him less trouble than if he were to confront them. Since he let them continue, they put on fake plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, and lie to strangers to earn money by saying they are a “changed man because of God” during a camp meeting. Twain shows how twisted the world is by using these characters to show how being morally wrong can take you farther than being a good person. As shown previously, Twain expressed his opinion on morality in various ways in Huckleberry Finn. He showed how the stereotypes during this time were not accurate at all, and how they can be broken.
