Abstract:

The first problem one faces in handling the anti-hero is to accept him/her as distinguished from hero and villain. Creating an anti-hero presents a reasonable realism and authenticity to a world full of contradictions.Unlike the hero, the anti-hero's character is willing to embrace not only bright, colored powers but also dark, dangerous powers that permeate the human realm. Byron, Abdul Saboor, and Enanideny the idea of an ideal romantic heroism; as such image is stronglyconnected to the concepts of strength, transcendence and victory. Instead, they opt for a portrayal of man’s weakness. The well-known heroic ideal is exchanged for another quieter heroism of preservation and continuity. The anti-hero/heroine as portrayed by the three poets shares some universal aspects such as the colourless life the anti-heroes’ experience, resorting to passivity, indifference, and escapism, losing potential, self-contradiction, lack of identity, triviality, and being self-terrorized.
