 Abstract
Consistent with its tendency towards undermining canonical issues, postmodernism launches an attack on the concept of the traditional hero, removing thus the latter from the pedestal founded by classic texts. Perceived as an inventory of identities, none of which gets precedence over the other, the postmodern anti-hero becomes thus just an instance of the fragmentariness and multiplicity of the contemporary world. The merit of "canonical? postmodernist texts, as the paper underlines, is that of finding relevance and value even in the case of such anti-heroes ,perfectly attuned to an ever shifting world.

 Rezumat
Consecvent tendintei de a submina concepte canonice, postmodernismul lanseaza un atac asupra aceluia al eroului traditional, coborandu-l pe acesta din urma de pe piedestalul creat de textele clasice.Perceput ca un inventar de identitati, dintre care nici una nu o domina pe cealalta, anti-eroul postmodern devine doar o ipostaza a fragmentarii si multiplicitatii lumii contemporane. Meritul textelor postmoderne "canonice? este acela de a gasi relevanta si valoare chiar si in cazul unor asemenea anti-eroi perfect adaptati unei lumi in permanenta schimbare.
