Unit 4:

The Anti-Hero

What can the complexity of an anti-hero teach me about my own humanity?

Enduring Understandings of the Unit: 

  • An anti-hero is a protagonist who has the contrasting characteristics of the traditional hero. 
  • At some point in their development, readers feel empathy for an anti-hero, and this deciphers them from the always-evil villain. 
  • Anti-heroes stimulate an audience’s intellect and push them to think more deeply about morality, ethics, and the responsibility an individual has on his/her life.
