TITLE In The Ways We Lie, by Stephanie Ericsson, and Anton Chekhov’s, The Lady with the Dog both have messages about lying. Ericsson discusses a few of the many types of lies or deceit, such as white lies and facades. Chekhov, on the other hand, does not particularly talk about lying, but the characters lie and deceive each other. Although it is easier to lie than to tell the truth, I claim that people should tell the truth all the time because lying is morally wrong, and it leads to unforeseen consequences. After lying for a while, people become so used to a society full of lies, they cannot stop lying.
The contrast between “coming to life” and “distressed” suggests that Sybil is shocked by the appearance and knowledge of the Inspector or she pretends not understanding the truth about her own son, Eric. Either way, the audience feels timid towards Sybil since pretentious is not how an upper class’s personality should be. A businessman’s wife is expected to stand up to protect herself and her family. The strong verb “ashamed” that Sybil uses with Eric suggests a sudden change in the attitude of herself. As a result, it emphasises even more on her apprehension and she becomes a joke of the audience since before this event, Sybil proves herself to the audience that she is very stubborn and no one can do anything to change her

Holden wants the truth from everyone but couldn’t bare to hear the truth from Mr. Spencer, so he makes up a lie to leave.Holden first says this when the reader knows they can't trust him; “I’m the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It’s awful.” (pg 16, Salinger). Holden describing himself as a terrific liar makes the reader question his authenticity because he makes himself seem like a phoney.

Although white is meant to be clean, pure, and innocent it ends up being the opposite for the speaker.
