God in novels
When talking about novels, do we speak assume that god is real in the novel or fake in the novel? This is completely different than if god is real in real life.

I thought of this because I am writing a paper on the Great Gatsby, and it seems to me that the author writes as if god is real. And TJ Eckleburg represents god. So in my paper, do I write as if god is real or not real?

As in:
"God looks at american society in the 1920s and is disappointed with the moral decay" or "George Wilson believes that God is disappointed with the moral decay in the 1920s"?

How about...

The author's choice of observer / narrator, i.e. a deity, ... etc.

Fiction is all about suspending disbelief...

I don't believe in God, magic, or anything from fantasy, but I still enjoy Tolkien and C.S Lewis.
