A Reader’s Guide to Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God

Series: Multicultural Literature

By Laura Baskes Litwin

Zora Neale Hurston's THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD is a heated tale of love and passion. The novel also broke new ground celebrating folk traditions, particularly of African-American women. The folklore traditions that Hurston pursued with the trained eye of the anthropologist engage the reader and play a vital role in preserving the cultural heritage of African Americans.
