Heroes and Heroines in World Literatures: Powerful or Powerless, Fascination, and Purpose

updated: 
Friday, July 2, 2021 - 1:14pm
Norfolk State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Description:

What is a hero? Some might define a hero as “someone who gives of himself, often putting his own life at great risk for the greater good of others. Outside of the standard dashing war portraits of men/women facing the gates of Hell, the most heroic are often the most ordinary of people doing ordinary things for a greater humane purpose” (www.guardian.com). According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a hero is “a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” In World Literatures, sometimes neither of these definitions appropriately define, represent, or determine who or what a hero/heroine truly exemplifies.
