Critical Companion to Zora Neale Hurston by Sharon L. Jones

Zora Neale Hurston, one the first great African-American novelists, was a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance and an inspiration for future generations of writers. Widely studied in high school literature courses, her novels are admired for their depiction of Southern black culture and their strong female characters. Critical Companion to Zora Neale Hurston is a reliable and up-to-date resource for high school and college-level students, providing reliable information on Hurston's life and work. This new volume covers all her writings, including Their Eyes Were Watching God ; her landmark works of folklore and anthropology, such as Mules and Men ; and shorter works, such as her story The Gilded Six-Bits.
