Criticism about Mark Twain

Romancing the Indian: Sentimentalizing and Demonizing in Cooper and Twain
“Representations of American Indians in nineteenth-century American literature were seldom culturally relative. Instead, the author often encoded in the American Indian caricature (“caricature” because these are rarely well-developed characters) his or her assumptions based on racial stereotypes, making the caricature a metonym for all American Indians.”
Contains: Criticism, Commentary
Author: Rissetto, Adriana
Keywords: Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Indians, Native Americans
