Wow, I don't find any of the characters sympathetic, except possibly Myrtle's husband.
As far as how he changes, check out the links below.
wouldnt gatsby be a candiddate to ?
Gatsby might be a candidate in terms of the fact that I have sympathy for his obsession. Falling in love with a woman doesn't excuse the choices he made in making himself feel as if he were "worthy" of her. I have sympathy for the fact that she led him on, and I have sympathy for the fact that who he believed to be the perfect woman was in fact far from perfect. I feel sorry for him in terms of "love lost." In this, he is a sad character to say the least, but on the whole, he created a false life by criminal means....... that I have no sympathy for.
One thing though, I have to tell you that I really like Gatsby's character; I like the man faults and all. But liking his character doesn't include finding him sympathetic.
