Overview

Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) is one of 20th-century America's foremost fiction and folklore writers. Though she was criticized by some of her contemporaries, including Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison, her works are now frequently taught in literature courses and are widely admired for their style and substance. This reference book is a comprehensive guide to the large body of work written about her in the last 75 years. Included are annotated entries for books, dissertations, and theses written about Hurston's life and literary career. The volume also looks at hundreds of articles, book chapters, conference papers, reviews, children's books, and web sites. The bibliography additionally points the reader to guides and biographical sources and to anthologies where her works are collected. Finally, an exhaustive list of works by Hurston is provided, along with a catalog of the special collections where her manuscripts, correspondence, and ephemera are stored.

Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) is one of 20th-century America's foremost fiction and folklore writers. One of the most important authors of the Harlem Renaissance and one of the first black anthropologists, she received little recognition during her lifetime. She was criticized by some of her contemporaries, including Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison, and her works were largely neglected until the early 1970s. Her works are now frequently taught in literature courses and are widely admired for their style and substance. Her anthropological study,IMules and Men (1935), is a pioneering examination of Voodoo and related folklore. As a novelist, she is best known as the author of Jonah's Gourd Vine (1934) and Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937). In addition, she was a prolific journalist who contributed to the most popular magazines and newspapers of her time.

Though long neglected, Hurston has become firmly established in the literary canon, and scores of books and articles have been written about her. This reference book is a comprehensive guide to the large body of work written about her in the last 75 years. Included are annotated entries for books, dissertations, and theses written about Hurston's life and literary career. The volume also looks at hundreds of articles, book chapters, conference papers, reviews, children's books, and web sites. The bibliography additionally points the reader to guides and biographical sources and to anthologies where her works are collected. Finally, an exhaustive list of works by Hurston is provided, along with a catalog of the special collections where her manuscripts, correspondence, and ephemera are stored.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Undertaken as a computer database for a graduate library and information science course at the University of Alabama, Davis contributes to the considerable revival of interest in this Harlem Renaissance author though her preface offers little contextual information. Her reference compiles multiple sources of Hurston- related commentary: books, dissertations, reviews, essays, bibliographies, works in anthologies, collections of manuscripts and memorabilia, and World Wide Web sites. Complementing these resources is a chronological listing of the author's works from 1921-1959, plus a note on a recently recovered short story. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Zora Neale Hurston's reference guide

    Zora Neale Hurston¿s works are more popular now than when she was alive. A revival of Hurston and her works began when Alice Walker found her unmarked grave. The interests of readers have been sparked, and this guide will help anyone find what they are looking for on Hurston. I recommend this reference guide for anyone who is interested in the works of and about Zora Neale Hurston, the most prolific female writer during the Harlem Renaissance.<BR/><BR/>This guide provides an abundance of annotations on dissertations, theses, books, and websites that speak on Zora Neale Hurston. Davis states the purpose of this guide: ¿This volume aims to be a comprehensive, up-to-date reference guide to the scholarship related to one of America¿s foremost writers. Since so much is written about Zora Neale Hurston, collocating in one source all the diverse arguments, theories, and strategies found in critical, bibliographical, and biographical information and making it easily accessible to researchers and scholars makes good sense.(x)"
