Silko/Setting in Ceremony

Uploaded by :

A 5 page research paper/essay that examines Ceremony by Native American writer Leslie Marmon Silko, which draws on the tradition and heritage of Pueblo Indians in order to demonstrate the significance of the narrative's setting. Silko emphasizes the psychic disconnect that Tayo has suffered between himself and the Earth, which is his "mother" according to Pueblo belief. In order to be whole again, Tayo must heal his relationship to the Earth and this is the context of his "ceremony." Bibliography lists 5 sources.
