Women of the Harlem Renaissance by Cheryl A. Wall

"Wall's writing is lively and exuberant. She passes her enthusiasm
for these writers' works on to the reader. She captures the mood of the times and
follows through with the writers' evolution -- sometimes to success, other times to
isolation.... Women of the Harlem Renaissance is a rare blend of thorough academic
research with writing that anyone can appreciate." -- Jason Zappe, Copley News

"By connecting the women to one another, to the
cultural movement in which they worked, and to other early 20th-century women
writers, Wall deftly defines their place in American literature. Her biographical
and literary analysis surpasses others by following up on diverse careers that often
ended far past the end of the movement. Highly recommended... "Â  -- Library

"Wall offers a wealth of information and insight on
their work, lives and interaction with other writers... strong critiques... "
-- Publishers Weekly

The lives and works of women artists in the
Harlem Renaissance -- Jessie Redmon Fauset, Nella Larsen, Zora Neale Hurston, Bessie
Smith, and others. Their achievements reflect the struggle of a generation of
literary women to depict the lives of Black people, especially Black women, honestly
and artfully.
