Zora Neale Hurston by Prof. Harold Bloom


Zora Neale Hurston by Prof. Harold Bloom

Zora Neale Hurston was a key figure in the Harlem Renaissance. Although her work was long ignored, it is now widely studied and praised. Her most famous novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God , a classic in the African-American canon, depicts a woman's struggle for self-empowerment. Newly updated and featuring supplemental material such as a chronology, a bibliography, and an index, Zora Neale Hurston, New Edition is a keen critical look at Hurston's work and its influence on contemporary themes, such as race and gender in American society.


Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels.
