Transcript of Gatsby Lies

Lies, Rumors, and Gossip Lying seems to be a big trend within the book. there were all of these rich, and famous people who earned the fame and fortune greatly...right? Was there past life exactly what was said? Did they attend the best colleges? Or live a life of wealth in prior years?
Nick, the man who calls himself "The most honest person I know" (14), was accused of being a politician in college , " I was privy to the secret griefs, of wild, unknow men". Not knowing someone can cause someone to believe whatever they say. What do you know, to know that they are not telling the truth? Gatsby: Nicks mysterious neighbor. Who throws parties quite often, known as a man of power, and wealth. Supposedly, a man who attended Oxford College, a man born into fortune, who has many friends. But in truth, Gatsby was a worker on a ship, earned his wealth all by himself in the past, but did not earn his money truly present day, Gatsby was a sold stolen bonds to get his money. Gatsby did not attend Oxford, but once lived in Oggsford, New Mexico (Declared by Tom in Chapter 8). Gatsby had no true friends, all the people at his parties were not true friends. When Gatsby passed away hardly anyone made it to his funeral. In reality, Gatsby did not care for their true presence, but just to be present, to make him look like a man fame, and money. Daisy: A woman who married for money, and support, not for love. Daisy loved once, but did not fulfill her love. Her lost love was Gatsby. Gatsby never lost his love for Daisy, making himself into a person he was far from, and doing things the extra mile just to impress her one day. Daisy was married to a man named Tom who cheated on her with many woman and the most significant mistress was Mrytle. Mrytle was also cheating on her husband,Mr. Wilson. At a party Myrtle was taunting Tom about his wife and he punched her in the face,one day Myrtle came home with a bloody nose and lied to her husband not only about her affair but also the reason for her bruised nose, her husband Mr. Wilson recalls her bloody nose, "a couple months ago his wife had come from the city with her face bruised and her nose swollen" (157) This declares that Mrytle never told him. Lies and Rumors were throughout the book immensely, for example, all the people who were supposedly famous, all the people who cheated on their husbands and wifes. Not only were they dishonest with others, but also with themselves. They couldnt accept who they truly were, they made themselves someone they werent, and loved many for the wrong reasons. In the end this book all does not end well for all, this should teach you that honesty can save you, because no matter what the eyes of truth are always watching you. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_w10xVM2pPd0/SUat3MY82gI/AAAAAAAAABU/qwqMFao4GDA/s320/Gold-Digger.jpg
