The Murdering Hero - A Study of Heroism in Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).

Abstract [en]

The essay intends to problematize the notion of heroism in Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game by contemplating the hero himself as well as his enemies. Particular focus will be placed on the good and evil dichotomy, arguing that it is essential to the heroic tale since the hero is supposed to fight evil and foster good. Seeing that Ender is also a murderer, the matter debated will be that he both is and is not a hero.
