In "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian", How does Arnold use his pictures to give us a better idea of his personality?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

Explanation:

Arnold Is A "Part-Time" Indian.

One of the major conflicts that Arnold faces in this book is between his part-time Indian Wellpinit self (Junior) and his Reardan self (Arnold):

Traveling between Reardan and Wellpinit, between the little white town and the reservation, I always felt like a stranger.

I was half Indian in one place and half white in the other.

It was like being Indian was my job, but it was only a part-time job. And it didn't pay well. (17.1-17.3)

On the reservation he is bullied and picked on, while at Reardan he earns respect and decides to break free of his old life. But he's still filled with guilt about leaving his hometown behind—at least until he realizes that he still has his buddy Rowdy's respect.

How is irony used in the story?

Satire is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. Shirley Jackson said she had the setting in the present tense (she wrote it in 1948) in order to “shock the readers with a graphic dramatization of the pointless violence and general inhumanity in their own lives.” What “pointless violence” and “general inhumanity” is she referring to?

Consider her statement in the question above and your response to it. Then answer: What is the message of the story (or the lesson learned by reading the story)?

Answers

1# In the second paragraph, children put stones in their pockets and make piles of stones in the town square, which seems like children playing around until the stones’ true purpose becomes clear at the end of the story.

2# Irony is the basic theme used in the story. Outside was expressed as "a sunny day", but eventually the housewife came across a horrible death (page 715). Two people running the town, Graves and Summers have ironic names.

#3 The lesson learned is there is a danger of going along with tradition

I would say mood or atmosphere because it doesn't directly say what the definition of it is in one sentence. Hope this helps :)
