Excerpt from Essay:

and most certainly throughout Greek and Roman mythology, the hero is typically the author's way of establishing a certain type of individual and theme for that work. Typically, the hero, while perhaps slightly flawed like the rest of humanity, possesses something special  a deep and ominous understanding of the inner world and inner self, and the ability to take that understanding and complete a set of tasks that often have parabolic meaning to the reader. This hero seems to teach us the value of humanity, while helping us strive for excellence by understanding the value of the experiences rendered through intuition, emotions, and often feelings that are special to the hero  often rather than logical reasoning. The paradigm of heroism transcends genre, chronology and has become so common in the human collective consciousness that it is easily recognized and repeated (Campbell, 1968).

However, in modern literature and philosophy, authors search for a more realistic approach to this archetype and perfection of the typical hero. Instead, many modern novels include the  anti- or  alienated hero, who has characteristics more akin to a real individual. That is, qualities that are good and bad, moral and immoral  the anti-hero may indeed save the world, but still has character flaws. There are reasons for the anti-hero s behavior, reasons that may be deeply psychological and even criminal, usually from some private set of demons that have yet to be flushed away. 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). The classic book and film adaptations How the Grinch Stole Christmas is an example of this anti-hero genre with strong mythological and archetypal meaning.
