Ceremony While reading the beginning portion of Silko's Ceremony, it is rather evident that storytelling is going to be a main focus of the novel. The way that this book is set up is much different than anything that I have read before. It contains poetry sections in between longer prose sections. When these poetry sections are inserted, I sense a change of story or place in time. There seems to be alot of flashbacks by Tayo who from reading isn't very easy to figure out. There is alot of ambiguity to this novel, you kind of have to figure things out on your own since there is no distinct story line yet, only different stories thrown in a random order. The story that is told about Tayo in th ...

Ceremony In the novel, Silko explores the gender roles of four women and the significance to the development and actualization of Tayos character. These four women are Tayos birth mother, Auntie, old Grandma, and Tseh (a Montano).

Racial Unity Through Ceremony Racial Unity Through Ceremony Over the years, after wars and famine, peace-time and floods, few things have persisted to survive.

In a shorter context, racism, the "cockroach" of human mentality, is still alive. ...
