Storyboard Text

  • An Antihero is the protoganist of the story that isn't your stereotypical hero. They are usually showing flaws and poor moral values that the stereotypical heros don't show.
  • Raskalnikov from Crime and Punishment is a great example of an antihero since the author displays him as a lost young man perhaps suffering from a mental disease, despite having killed two innocent people.
  • Example 1: "The blow fell; the mare staggered, sank back, tried to pull, but the bar fell again with a swinging blow on her back and she fell on the ground like a log." (Part 1, Chapter 5)
  • Example 2: "I did not bow down to you, I bowed down to all the suffering of humanity," he said wildly and walked away to the window." (Part 4, Chapter 4)
  • Example 3: "They say it is necessary for me to suffer! What's the object of these senseless sufferings? Shall I know any better what they are for, when I am crushed by hardships and idiocy, and weak as an old man after twenty years' penal servitude?" (Part 6, Chapter 8)
  • Example 4: "But that is the beginning of a new story – the story of the gradual renewal of a man, the story of his gradual regeneration, of his passing from one world into another." (Epilogue, Part 2)
