Abstract

This essay considers anti-heroism as a response to modern man’s uncertainties about traditional values and as a feature of modernity’s zeitgeist. Modern anti-heroism captures the sensibility associated with modernism, with its attempts at cultural renewal, and it ranges between the low mimetic and the ironic mode.
