The definition of chivalry from dictionarycom is the sum of the ideal qualification of a knight including courtesy generosity valor and dexterity in arms Another definition of chivalry is related to the medieval institution of knighthood which has an aristocratic military origin of individual training and service to others Chivalry was also the term used to refer to a group of mounted men-at-arms as well as to martial valor It is often associated with ideals of knightly virtues honor and courtly loveIn the story What You Pawn I will Redeem the main character Jackson also known as Jackson-to-the-second-power whom is homeless finds his grandmothers memorabilia in a pawn store that Jackson and his friends happen to pass while walking around In this story the idea of chivalry would be Jackson trying to get his grandmothers memorabilia back Jackson is a homeless man but still at any means necessary he is still trying to retrieve the memorabilia Being homeless makes things a little more complicated because recently he does not have any money The pawnbroker told him that he would sell it to him for nine hundred and ninety-nine dollars Jackson starts out with five dollars and throughout the story he does gain some money by stealing his friends dollar bill out of his sock and then again when he wins some money Even though Jackson does gain money throughout the story he continually spends the money he earnsstealswins right away after he gets it This is his pattern throughout the story and I believe that has something to do with him being homeless he does not usually have money so when he gets it he eats which I dont blame him there and other various acts including buying drinks for his fellow Indians Still he wishes for his grandmothers memorabilia By no means even if Jackson saved all the money he did have he still would not have enough to buy it from the pawnbroker
