And in no particular order, though the #1 spot is pretty understandable given what I've been obsessing over in the last weeks.
- Edward Cullen (definitely has elements of the Byronic hero and the Alpha hero)
- Luke Skywalker (Return of the Jedi especially)
- Mr Darcy (Pride & Prejudice)
- Edward Rochester (oooh, another Edward! From Jane Eyre. Now here's a true Byronic hero.)
- Legolas (Orlando Bloom version)
- Lawrence Decker (Suzanne Brockmann's SEAL Team 16 series)
- Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables)
- Laurie (Little Women)
- Hawkeye (Last of the Mohicans, Daniel Day Lewis version)
- Paul Atreides (Dune)
- Oberon (King of the Fairies, Midsummer Night's Dream)
- Jon Snow (George R R Martin's Song of Ice and Fire)
Notice that Heathcliff is nowhere to be found. I hate Heathcliff.
