The best place to find articles on works of literature is in our literature databases. Use our Working with Literature guide (see link below) to access the best literature databases and get step by step instructions.
Literary Sources had the most articles on Sherman Alexie's This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona and we currently have one book and one eBook that cover Alexie. We also have a GVRL eBook with a plot summary, themes, context and some criticism of the story. You'll need to log in with your COM ID and last name if you are off campus for our electronic resources.
Here are some tips when searching for literature:
- Select name of work after typing in story/poem title.
- Limit to Literature criticism under content type.
- You can also limit to peer reviewed publications--these will all be academic journal articles.
