African Religious Influences on Three Black Women Novelists: The Aesthetics of Vodun, Zora Neale Hurston, Simone Schwartz-bart, and Paule Marshall - hardcover

2007, ISBN: 0773455280

[SR: 10213291], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780773455283], Edwin Mellen Pr, Edwin Mellen Pr, Book, [PU: Edwin Mellen Pr], 2007-02-28, Edwin Mellen Pr, This study, focusing on select novels by women writers of the African Diaspora, illustrates that a surprising degree of commonality exists among works with obvious geographical, cultural, and linguistics differences an affirmation of the philosophical essence of the Vodun religion as an antidote to Western spiritual and cultural moribundity. A close reading Zora Neale Hurston s "Their Eyes Were Watching God", Simone Schwarz-Bart s "Pluie et Vent sur Telum??e Miracle", and Paule Marshall s "Praisesong for the Widow", demonstrates the way in which these works allude to the Vodun pantheon and ancestor veneration in order to valorize a worldview that recognizes the interconnectedness of all living things, visible and invisible. This is accomplished by locating each novel within its socio-political context and developing African diasporic literary tradition wherein African-derived beliefs have become sources of cultural resistance. After this reconstruction, the author is able to explicate the representation and function of Vodun as it is employed by each of the authors under consideration., 10207, Criticism & Theory, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159376011, African American, 9928, United States, 10159358011, Regional & Cultural, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159380011, Women Authors, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 12775, Tribal & Ethnic, 12478, Native American, 297522, Popol Vuh, 12769, Rastafari Movement, 12761, Other Religions, Practices & Sacred Texts, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11344, Women Writers, 11325, Women's Studies, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491406, American Literature, 468236, Literature, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468234, Religious Studies, 491436, Buddhism, 491438, Christianity, 684281011, Comparative Religion, 491442, Islam, 491444, Judaism, 491446, Religious History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
