BOOKS SHADE: PS 3515.U789T639 2000 Zora Neale Hurston's Their eyes Were watching God: A Casebook. Edited by Wall, Cheryl A. Oxford; New York: Oxford University Press. 2000.

SHADE: PS3515.U789T5 1998 Their Eyes Were Watching God. Hurston, Zora Neale. New York: Perennial Classics. 1998. Of Hurston's fiction, Their Eyes Were Watching God is arguably the best-known and perhaps the most controversial. The novel follows the fortunes of Janie Crawford, a woman living in the black town of Eaton, Florida. Hurston sets up her characters and her locale in the first chapter, which, along with the last, acts as a framing device for the story of Janie's life. Unlike Wright and Ralph Ellison, Hurston does not write explicitly about black people in the context of a white world--a fact that earned her scathing criticism from the social realists--but she doesn't ignore the impact of black-white relations either.

As Zora Neale Hurston writes about her trip to her hometown of Eatonville, Florida, where she went to gather material: "it was a hilarious night with a pinch of everything social mixed with the story telling . . . Some of the stories were the familiar drummer-type of tale about two Irishmen, Pat and Mike, or two Jews as the case might be. SHADE: PS3515.U789S68 1985 Spunk: The Selected Stories.
