Deep Play: “Notes on the Balinese Cockfight” is an article written by Clifford Geertz that discusses how the Balinese cockfight serves as a cultural text as well as defining the real meaning of being Balinese. Geertz and his wife, who are anthropologists, were highly interested in studying cockfighting after their experience in traveling to a Balinese village. Cockfighting is an illegal popular sport in Bali where two cocks are placed in a small ring by their handlers and fight each other. “Cocks armed with steel spurs sharp enough to cut off a finger or run a hole through a foot were running wildly around,” (Geertz 415). This quote in Geertz’s article explains why cockfighting
When one thinks of Bali, one will most possibly envision the white sand beaches, clear blue skies, calming water and the huge number of Western tourists there. Chances that one will jump into the idea of cockfighting in Bali villages would probably be very low. Cockfighting plays a pivotal role in the life of numerous Balinese men. As Geertz (2005), an American anthropologist suggested, cockfighting is considered as a part of “The Balinese Way of Life”. A cockfight, in a straightforward explanation, means a fight between two roosters in a caged ring until one of them dies for the amusement of spectators (PETA, n.d.). However, to Balinese men, it means so much more than this – it is an obsession that has been passed down through generations.
