DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick “A deeply soulful novel that comprehends love and cruelty, and separates the big people from the small of heart, without ever losing sympathy for those unfortunates who don’t know how to live properly.” —Zadie Smith One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The rediscovery of Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, first published in 1937 but subsequently out-of-print for decades, marks one of the most dramatic chapters in African-American literature and Women's Studies. Its popularity owes much to the lyricism of the prose, the pitch-perfect rendition of black vernacular English, and the memorable characters--most notably, Janie Crawford. Collecting the most widely cited and influential essays published on Hurston's classic novel over the last quarter century, this Casebook presents contesting viewpoints by Hazel Carby, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Barbara Johnson, Carla Kaplan, Daphne Lamothe, Mary Helen Washington, and Sherley Anne Williams. The volume also includes a statement Hurston submitted to a reference book on twentieth-century authors in 1942. As it records the major debates the novel has sparked on issues of language and identity, feminism and racial politics, A Casebook charts new directions for future critics and affirms the classic status of the novel.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Hawai'i Pacific University, course: 20th Century Women Writers of Color, language: English, comment: 31 Seiten mit doppeltem Zeilenabstand., abstract: Nora Zeale Hurston's novel "Their Eyes Were Watching God" can be considered "one of the sexiest, most 'healthily' rendered heterosexual love stories in our literature" (Walker, "Zora Neale Hurston" 88). This paper provides information about the outer contexts of the novel, as well as inductive analyses of the novel. The first part of the paper (Ch. 2-5) reveals information about the author and the historical and literary context of the time in which Hurston's novel was published. The second part of the paper (Ch. 6-7) starts off with an analysis of the plot and characters of Their Eyes Were Watching God, and then focuses on the theme of Otherness as it occurs in Huston's novel. The examinations of the concept of "Otherness," alongside with other terms such as "Dichotomization" and "Stigma," will be based on the concepts that Rosenblum and Travis describe in their work The Meaning of Difference: American Constructions of Race, Sex and Gender, Social Class and Sexual Orientation.

Asserting a Self concept Through Resistance
Available:
Author: Lindley K. Homol
Pages: 39
ISBN: OCLC:654458991
Release: 2010
Editor: Unknown

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This thesis explores the role of resistance in the creation of a free self-concept in Toni Morrison's Beloved (1987) and Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937). Both Beloved and Their Eyes Were Watching God illustrate the enduring influence of slavery on the lives of African Americans and how slavery continued to circumscribe the lives of former slaves and their progeny. In order to combat the tenacious grip of slavery, Morrison's Sethe and Hurston's Janie Crawford Killicks Starks Woods must resist, both actively and passively, the way that the legacy of slavery continually attempts to shape them in order to create and assert their own independent self-concepts. After examining Sethe's resistance, characterized by passive memory repression, and Janie's resistance, characterized by oration, the thesis will conclude with a brief comparison of the novels as neo-slave narratives that attempt to explain how someone can overcome the legacy of slavery through both active and passive resistance. A comparison of Janie's and Sethe's quests, and the nature of each woman's resistance, reveals two distinctly different engagements with the idea of community.
