The character of the main protagonist in literature has undergone a radical change with the passage of time, from a hero’s to that of an antihero, defined as a principal character who lacks noble qualities and whose experiences are without tragic dignity, or a protagonist who lacks the characteristics that would make him a hero. The term archetype denotes a primordial image, character or pattern of circumstances that recurs throughout literature, history and thought consistently enough to be considered universal. Postmodern means of or relating to any of the several artistic movements that have challenged the philosophy and practices of modern art, or has amounted to reaction against ‘an order view of the world’.
