A Critical Study of Zora Neale Hurston

Book of literary criticism about Zora Neale Hurston (1903-1960), an important black novelist and folklorist. Though a significant author of the period, author of an autobiography, three novels, three books of folklore and anthropology, and many short stories and essays, she is almost completely unknown to the general reading public and even to students of American literature. Symptomatic of the general obscurity of black authors and artists in US. Black literature reflects a signficant portion of the American experience and merits closer study for a fuller understanding of American life.
