  • Essay: An antihero is a flawed hero, and therefore, much more interesting than the more traditional heroes. They can be working on the side of good, but with a tragic flaw, or a horrible past, or for reasons that are selfish and not entirely "pure". They can also be working for the side of evil, but with hidden noble intentions, or other underlying complexities. These darker heroes can be jerks, pathetic, hard, jaded, or mean. However, all anti-heroes must have enough heroic qualities, intentions, or strength (physical including attractiveness or mental) to somehow gain the sympathy of the audience.

  • PLEASE WRITE A 3/4 PAGE ESSAY THAT EXPLAINS HOW BUTCH AND SUNDANCE ARE ANTIHEROES. SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM USING EXAMPLES FROM THE FILM. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THEY ARE HEROES AT ALL, PLEASE USE EXAMPLES AS EVIDENCE OF YOUR BELIEF.
