Topic: Role Models or Simplified Complex Representations? Character Models in Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie


Please analyze the representations of Native American people in Sherman Alexie’s Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.
In the duration of the paper it should become clear, that the characters that are displayed in the novel are not just simplified complex representations (that is a concept from movie studies by Evelyn Al-Sultany) but act as complex representations and are role models in different senses for Junior.

First of all it would be important to analyze Junior in that context, so it should become clear that he is not just a simplified complex representation but a complex character with his own hopes and dreams.

During the first step of the analysis it would be great if the text could focus on the stereotypical representations of Native Americans in the novel and show how it is not accurate to just see them as simplified complex representations but that there is more to the characters.

In the second part of the analysis, it would be great if the paper could show how there are also other Native American characters that are represented in a complex manner and also act as role models.

Sister: Role Model for purchasing your dream
Rowdy: Role Model because of his strength

In the conclusion of the paper, it should become clear that the negative representations of Native American characters and also their physical environment are not there to promote stereotypes but to make readers aware of the realities of Native American life in reservations.
