Part A The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby is one of the most famous novels written in the year 1925 by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The novel follows the characters living in the fictions towns of West Egg and East Egg on a prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. May of the literary critics have cited that The Great Gatsby is one of the greatest novels that have ever been written.
The novel was written in first person limited perspective what the character Nick has felt and the description based on his point of view. Thus in the entire novel Nick has used the word I and has described the events as those have been experienced by himself. In the novel the Nick has most of the time kept himself in the background and has described the entire events as an observer, however with exception to meeting with Gatsby, Daisy and Tom he represented himself in the present sense. In most of the times Nick has na

For example when Gatsby tells Nick about his past life with Daisy, Nick described the entire event from Gatsby’s point of view such as “His heart beat faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own.

However the Nick’s character in the Great Gatsby is not a particular unreliable character and he tries to represents the events as truthful as possible. He tells us from the beginning that he has an uncanny ability to reserve the judgment and get the people to trust him. This can show him as the reliable na
ator and all the events that happened in the novel can be trusted. Nick can be seen to prove himself as the reliable character as he says “I am the very leads person who can be trusted and honest”, which shows the extent to which he tries to prove his honesty.
However there is a contradiction that a na
ator can never be trusted and he/she can never be relied upon. This can be proved form the fact that Nick has great fondness towards Gatsby. This fondness can have an impact over the na
ation of the story because this will lead the storytelling contrasted by his clear distaste for the other characters who are there in his book. He sees and...
