5 One Pager The Great Gatsby Simile: “ Boy your heart is like an open book,” (pg 210) This sentence is written to explain to us how open Richard Wright is with his feelings. Instead of talking literally, saying that his emotions are too openly expressed, the author substitutes the definition with a figurative sentence. This sentence accounts the reader to stop for a minute and fabricate in their head pages of pictures filled with the lonely yet adventurous life of Richard Wright. Question: I wonder how Mrs. Moss saw what a wonderful boy Richard was? How could you possibly see someone’s pain, someone's hidden knowledge, hidden love?
