Some people see Tom Buchanan as the novel's antagonist, but the real antagonist in the story is Gatsby's dream. He's spent his life believing Daisy is the perfect woman and that he is meant to be with her, but she's not worthy of the value he places on her...... she is not what he believed her to be. Therefore, the dream was a lie..... it never existed.
