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.


An excellent and balanced discussion...

A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence.

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.
