Abstract
Neil Gaiman's The Sandman is a graphic novel that explores the complexities of reality and identity. The main asset of this work is its presentation of a plurality of narratives that, together, create not only a completely new world vision according to comic-book standards, but also a novel conception of cultural identity. This essay aims to analyze how The Sandman deals with identity construction as fashioned by two different but related notions: on the one hand, identity as the outcome of the confrontation between old conceptions of the world and new roles, duties and values; on the other hand, identity as a change of situation, as the individual wilfully escaping from old masks that imprison the self inside predetermined patterns of behaviour.
