Synopsis

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.

Reviews

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
