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

In chapter two there are many ways the author shows illusion but one that stood out to me was the whole scene where Tom takes Nick to New York, they meet Myrtle and go to an apartment. The whole scene creates an illusion because both Tom and Myrtle are trying to escape the lives they have, by pretending to have a life that they will never get the chance to have but still they hope for it.
