It is difficult to feel sympathy for the distraught protagonist because the reasons for his dreariness are all self-induced. To elaborate, one of the reasons Holden is unfit for sympathy is his personality. Throughout his coming of age, he often gives up and is lazy, tells lies or makes excuses. To begin with the former, Holden gives up on his schooling.
Holden does not speak about or show any emotion but yet desires the love and contact from a partner or friend although his walls don’t allow it.

Willy Loman was a “Lo-man” below everyone instead of getting back up from his failure and try to change his actions. Dreams are one of the hardest accomplishments to achieve in life today, But they are also very easy to slip away by little mistakes. Mr.Loman’s dream had formed out to fail on him because he took the wrong path to his dream.
Therefore, Willy is his own enemy because his unwillingness to change his behavior and thinking keeps him entrapped in a system of values that prevent him from ever being free. This makes him pathetic and tragic, not heroic and tragic, because the tragic hero rejects any system that prevents the freedom of love and creativity in the self, even if it is a system he himself has adopted.
