Just., 5, 1.This resource looks at different stories that touch on Indians and their development of different tribal laws. The author thinks that “What You Pawn I Will Redeem” is a classic example of how the Indian tribes survive in foreign countries in many different ways. It categorizes this as a smallstory of individual Indians living on or off reservations. This resource is closely related to the
ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY3materials because it addresses the same concerns. The fact that many Indians in foreign countriesare not living as should. The promotion of the Indian tribe in foreign countries is not met with the zeal and effort that it should. It is thus an excellent resource for their literary analysis and onethat holds a lot of ground.3.Troyer, R. A. (2008). Dialogue and Discourse Structure: A Speech Move Analysis of Sherman Alexie’s Story ‘What You Pawn I Will Redeem’. The State of Stylistics: PALA 26, 5, 303.This paper presents a framework that can be applied to dialogue in fiction. Based on elaboration of Halliday’s functional approach to conversational interaction combined with traditional concertation and discourse analysis and speech act theory. This analytical method offers a descriptive apparatus that can be simple or complex depending on one’s ability to capture not isolated speech acts but rather the interactive nature of conversation. This reference is quite related to the material because it provides a firsthand experience with the subject. It addresses theissue of Jackson and the other characters from a different perspective and it is an ideal resource thus for this analysis.
