These two readings were very

These two readings were very different. I liked Silko's story better because it was more personal. She was discussing her own culture and the stories associated with it. I found the story that she told to be very powerful. The other reading was of a completely different style, however, it too was a discussion of a culture. Geertz was not originally a member of the culture that he wrote about. His writing was so hard for me to get into because it wasn't as personal as Silko's. He wrote like an anthropologist.
