The Story of the Indian Gentleman: Recovery of the English Masculine Identity in "A Little Princess."
Kawabata, Ariko
Children's Literature in Education, v32 n4 p283-93 Dec 2001
Focuses on the figure of "the Indian gentleman," a friend of Sara's late father, and who later becomes her surrogate one, to clarify what this most Orientalised Englishman embodies. Notes how examining the plot development from his perspective will make it possible to interpret the "happy" ending as the resolution of racial, cultural, and gender ambiguity as represented by him.
