Question :

Explore one way fitzgerald presents illusion in this chapter. Use evidence to support your ideas

Answer :

one way Fitzgerald displayed illusion in chapter 2 was when they had the party at the apartment.. they were all getting along and acting like it was a normal friendly get together. Tom and Myrtle Wilson were playing the part of two lovers and using the rented apartment as their “home” but this is proven wrong when tom breaks her nose and shows he doesn’t really care for her and is just using this her and the house as a get away. this can be seen in page 37 – ” “Daisy! Daisy! Daisy!” shouted Mrs. Wilson. “I’ll say it whenever I want to! Daisy! Dai –”  making a short deft movement , Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” It shows that Tom is only using Myrtle as a distraction from his life and feels anger when she breaks their illusion love and reminds him of his real life and his real wife Daisy.
