๐Ÿ“The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Trickster Trickster Discourse in Sherman Alexie s The Absolutely True Diary of Part Time Indian Detail : You are one thing yet you are another. This is a feeling many people experience on a daily base; the feeling of being a paradox in its own right. Arnold Spirit Junior, protagonist in Sherman Alexies The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, feels this way as well. On top of this, he also needs to deal with changing schools, and in order to be able to do this, he needs to change himself. I belief that he used the idea of the Native American trickster figure to do this. Because through all of my research I have concluded that the trickster is a paradox in its own terms. It is a god who creates the world and it is a human who makes mistakes. Yet the trickster is much more than that, and so is Junior.

๐Ÿ“War Dances Detail : The bestselling, award-winning authorโ€™s โ€œfiercely freewheeling collection of stories and poems about the tragicomedies of ordinary livesโ€ (O, The Oprah Magazine). Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, War Dances blends short stories, poems, call-and-response, and more into something that only Sherman Alexie could have written. Ordinary men stand at the threshold of profound change, from a story about a famous writer caring for a dying but still willful father, to the tale of a young Indian boy who learns to value his own life by appreciating the deaths of others. Perceptions change, too, as โ€œAnother Proclamationโ€ casts a shadow over Abraham Lincolnโ€™s Emancipation Proclamation, and โ€œInvisible Dog on a Leashโ€ limns the heartbreak of shattered childhood illusions. And nostalgia for antiquated technology is tenderly rendered in โ€œOde to Mix Tapesโ€ and โ€œOde for Pay Phones.โ€ With his versatile voice, Alexie explores love, betrayal, fatherhood, alcoholism, and art in this spirited, soulful, and endlessly entertaining collection, transcending genre boundaries to create something truly unique. This ebook features an illustrated biography including rare photos from the authorโ€™s personal collection.

Half Native American and half Irish, fifteen-year-old โ€œZitsโ€ has spent much of his short life alternately abused and ignored as an orphan and ward of the foster care system. Ever since his mother died, heโ€™s felt alienated from everyone, but, thanks to the alcoholic father whom heโ€™s never met, especially disconnected from other Indians. After he runs away from his latest foster home, he makes a new friend. Handsome, charismatic, and eloquent, Justice soon persuades Zits to unleash his pain and anger on the uncaring world. But picking up a gun leads Zits on an unexpected time-traveling journey through several violent moments in American history, experiencing life as an FBI agent during the civil rights movement, a mute Indian boy during the Battle of Little Bighorn, a nineteenth-century Indian tracker, and a modern-day airplane pilot. When Zits finally returns to his own body, โ€œhe begins to understand what it means to be the hero, the villain and the victim. . . . Mr. Alexie succeeds yet again with his ability to pierce to the heart of matters, leaving this reader with tears in her eyesโ€ (The New York Times Book Review).

๐Ÿ“The Absolutely True Diary of a Part time Indian Detail : Published in 2007, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, a young adult novel by Sherman Alexie, a Spokane Coeur dโ€™Alene Indian, quickly gained notoriety. Many embraced the fictionalized accounting of Alexieโ€™s childhood, but others pushed back and called for its censorship because they felt the traumas ATDโ€™s protagonist, Arnold Spirit, faces are too troubling, even monstrous, for children to encounter. Alexie is not interested in trying to protect children from monsters by denying their existence and hiding any mention of the monstrous; instead, Alexie writes to provide children and readers with tools to fight their own monsters. Jeffrey James Cohenโ€™s seven theses comprising Monster Theory provide a useful framework to understand the complexity of monsters and their relationship with society: where monsters come from, what monsters are, and the potential monsters hold for the betterment of communities. An understanding of Monster Theory allows readers to better understand the undercurrents of fear, anxiety and desire that drive Arnoldโ€™s experiences within Wellpinit and Reardan. Arnold is seen as a monster either for abandoning his community or entering a community where he does not belong. This thesis examines instances in ATD that support Cohenโ€™s reading of monsters as well as the background of the fears and anxieties that motivated the creation of specific monsters that Arnold faces. Not only does Alexie show how tools such as art, reading, friendship, list-making, sports, and persistence serve as mighty weapons with which to fight monsters, Alexie also shows how a once deemed monster can become an integral member of society.
