What is one way modernist writers use unreliable narrators to support their ideas about the world? By exaggerating the truth by undermining important ideas by writing in the second person by saying the opposite of the truth


By exaggerating the truth.


To exaggerate any statement or claim is to provide excessive or "over-the-top" details or explanations. It is to say or make a claim about something which is more than it really is, in order to make it seem more attractive or 'to give it extra points'.

Modernist writers use to sugarcoat their claims by providing exaggerated details about their ideas. This makes their claim seem more 'valid', making them seem like they are the best. And with the use of such claims, they use unreliable sources so that it will make their claim seem genuine and acceptable.

The correct answer is B: By sugarcoating events.


The use of unreliable narrators became known in literature as a literary device around 1961, when the term was first mentioned. Basically, these narrators help the writer to generate a sense of mystery, and a desire in the reader to discover the truth, since at some point they learn that what the narrator has been saying, is not the truth. These narrators tend to be first-person narrators, although some have used the second and third persons. And aside from giving hints in certain portions of the story about the reliability of the narrator, an author may also make the narrator change in some way the true meaning, or the reality, of a truth, by adding falsehoods, or deviations, of the truth, so that the reader starts to wonder about the veracity of what the narrator is saying, versus the actual happenings in the story.

Booth in "The Rhetoric of Fiction" and has been used notable by modernist writers such as in Agatha Christie’s "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" or Ken Kesey’s "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest".
