Description

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.
