Thesis and Annotated BibliographyChange is vital in character development as it shows how the character evolves after several stages. In The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Timeby Mark Haddon, Christopher is a modern day hero because he overcomes obstacles to achieve his goals and grow as a person. He is brave, anti-social, and determined, all character traits that take him on the hero’s journey. His character traits slowly help him to achieve what he desires and show him thathe can do anything.
Annotated Bibliography Orlando, M. (2018). Neurodiverse Self-Discovery and Social Acceptance in Curious Incident and Marcelo in the Real World. Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies, 12(3), 321–335. The main purpose of this article is to compare the main protagonists of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time andMarcelo in the Real World from a neurological level. Although this comparison does not go with my theme this article makes some interesting comments about Christopher’s character. For example “While Christopher in Curious Incident encourages readers to consider the world from a neurodiverse point of view and see the potential value of neurodiversity for the individual himself, it also portrays his autistic traits as the dominant aspects of his identity, and it is difficult to see how others may accept his difference or recognize him as having value in society.” (Orlando, 2018). I chose this resource as it explains Christopher’s logic due to his autism and correlates with how his condition does not stop him from trying to better himself.Ray, S. J. (2013). “Normalcy, Knowledge, and Nature in Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” Disability Studies Quarterly, 33(3), 11. -org.ezproxy.rasmussen.edu/10.18061/dsq.v33i3.3233This source is focused merely on Christopher’s view of society and his current environment. It is unique in that the author suggests Chris feels this way yet wants to understand how to fit in. The author goes on to suggest that Christopher’s views of language, knowledge, and even the more-than-human world itself are central to his destabilization of the category of disability.
Perry, A. (2011). How to keep a series interesting: A bestselling creator of three mystery series discusses what to think about when developing characters and choosing settings and themes. Writer (Kalmbach Publishing Co.), 124(11), 36–55. Retrieved from ?direct=true&db=lfh&AN=66558743&site=eds-liveThis article is different from the others mentioned as it primarily focused on the development of characters and how it makes a story interesting. It goes on to state that charactersneed flaws that we the readers can relate too or sympathize for in order to get invested in the story.
