Explain the meaning of a "smokescreen" in literature.

246

There is no play that you listed, but this might be ok, since smokescreens function in the same way irrespective of context. Smokescreens function to veil or hide something from a person or group of people. The goal of smokescreen, then, are to deceive. They can also be more pernicious, because it might not hide truth, but bend truth and tweak it a little here or a little there. The best lies, keep in mind, are the ones that are mostly true. In this way, people won't be able to tell what is true and false. Smokescreens are great at doing this.
