I really connected with reading Silent Dancing by Judith Ortiz Cofer. I was able to see some interchangeable themes and contrasts of ideas through out Gloria Andalzua’s peace How to Tame a Wild Tongue. My first connection with this peace was identifying with my grandmother. She is an immigrant in to this country for Italy. As I read the story, Silent Dancing, I reflected by on the stories that she would tell my brother and me growing up. Coming from Italy and finding a new home in New York was an impactful transition. She found confront in the familiarity of the neighborhood. (It was mostly Italians) As I read the story I could not help to think of Cofer’s mother and how she felt confront in the barrio but her father found it degrading. Was it my grandmothers choice to stay in the neighborhood or where they just being confined by society.
