THE GREAT GATSBY In F Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby Tom Buchanans attitude toward the other characters demonstrates his true personality There are many things that make up his character which cause him to carry on in this manner His attitude stems from the way he was brought up by his parents and the values they instilled in him Throughout his life everything was handed to him on a silver platter So Tom feels that world is at feet and that he can do whatever he wants to whoever he wants without having to suffer any repercussions Tom is also a white supremacist some of views are racist though he does not make any direct racists statements throughout the book This essay will show the relationships between Tom and other characters such as Gatsby Myrtle and Daisy From the way he interacts with these it will show his true disposition The relationship of Tom Buchanan and his wife Daisy Buchanan is not all good Tom treats his wife not as a person but as an object To him Daisy is nothing but and possession Because he only thinks of her as a possession it is easier for him to treat her without respect The conclusion that he has no respect for Daisy come from the fact that he has had and probably will have extra-marital affairs If Tom had any respect for Daisy he would not cheat on her and he would not treat her as a possession rather than a person It is Daisys purity and selfishness which allows her to be so easily corrupted by Tom and his life style Daisys only interest in Tom is his money Tom know this and he knows that Daisy will never leave him therefore he can afford to cheat on his wife without a guilty conscience To Tom this is the way that life should he does not see the immorality of his actions
