Description

Along with Louise Erdich's Love Medicine, Leslie Marmon Silko's Ceremony is one of the two most widely taught and studied Native American literature texts today. In Ceremony, Silko recounts a young man's search for consolation in his tribes history and traditions, and his resulting voyage of self-discovery and dicovery of the world. This casebook includes a variety of theoretical approaches and provides readers with crucial information, especially on Native American beliefs, that will enhance their understanding and appreciation of this contemporary classic. This collection also includes two interviews with Leslie Marmon Silko in which she explains the importance of oral tradtion and storytelling, along with the autobiographical basis of the novel.show more
