Byronic Hero and the Comparison With Other Heroes



The Byronic Hero created in the works of Byron has dual attributes which reflect the Byron’s inner contradictions. On the one hand he who was influenced by classical Greek heroes could not get rid of restriction of the traditional Pan Heroism, on the other hand, in his poems using monologues or dialogues as subtle clues, Byron created heroic figures to some extent opposed to the Pan Heroism. The Byronic hero has similar attributes of later Nietzsche’s “Superman”. This paper deals with the Byronic hero and the comparison with other heroes.
