Excerpt from Essay:

The alienation of this type of hero shouts to the audience,  I may be flawed, but I m all you have, and still, finds the audience relating to the trials and tribulations that the hero typically undergoes in the journey through the story. The idea of the anti-hero, in fact, has become even more popular in contemporary film and other popular genres (graphic novels, comic book adaptations, popular fiction, etc.) (See: Marshall, 2000; Rollin, 1973).

Deciding to stop Christmas from coming, the Grinch dresses Max up as a reindeer and swoops down on Whoville to steal all the presents. When Christmas morning arrives and the Who s continue to sing and celebrate, the Grinch is puzzled. His epitome comes when he realizes that, to the Who s, Christmas…[continue]
