dc.description.abstractThe problem with having a romantic streak in today's world lies largely with feeding one's self, as being able to fit into jobs and everyday life has its unique difficulties for such a person. This also extends quite naturally and with no problem to the writing of a senior thesis. Hence, this one, which is neither a closed scholarly work or a flighty praise of fairy tales; rather, it is as the title unambiguously implies, a study of the hero and the heroic which makes no attempt at rocking Cambridge but nonetheless has points of profundity amidst its praise and examination. It: concerns itself mainly with tracing the hero from Ancient Greece to medieval Europe and focusing then on the hero of our times. It is not a refutation of Carlyle and company, but rather an addition with a different vantage point.en_US
