The Anti-Hero

While the Anti-Hero is considered to be a rather modern literary invention, he is in fact as old as Human history. You could say Gilgamesh was the original anti-hero...as far as we know. The Anti-Hero is driven by a myriad of ideas, conflicts within himself, authority and the world. He has a different sort of 'morality' or he may not show any appreciable normal sort of what is considered moral. Yet, he remains true to his own code as best he can to do what he has before him.

In dark times, when reason, logic and goodness seem to be missing, and the bad guys are beyond bad, it takes someone like the anti-hero to take them down. "Know your enemy as you know yourself to defeat him." It's a lesson from "The Book of Five Rings" in being a successful warrior from one of the biggest anti-heroes of all time, Miyamoto Musashi - a disaffected samurai who laid out the basis of the art of Ninjutsu and died of natural causes in 1645 ...that's how good he was.

Clint Eastwood's "Man with No Name", and Franco Nero's "Django" are two well known anti-heroes.
