Zora Neale Hurston, Zadie Smith:
Their Eyes Were Watching God (Virago Modern Classics, Band 217) - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 0860685241

[SR: 36449], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780860685241], Virago, Virago, Book, [PU: Virago], 2008-09-06, Virago, At the height of the Harlem Renaissance during the 1930s, Zora Neale Hurston was the preeminent black woman writer in the United States. She was a sometime-collaborator with Langston Hughes and a fierce rival of Richard Wright. Her stories appeared in major magazines, she consulted on Hollywood screenplays, and she penned four novels, an autobiography, countless essays, and two books on black mythology. Yet by the late 1950s, Hurston was living in obscurity, working as a maid in a Florida hotel. She died in 1960 in a Welfare home, was buried in an unmarked grave, and quickly faded from literary consciousness until 1975 when Alice Walker almost single-handedly revived interest in her work. Of Hurston's fiction, Their Eyes Were Watching God is arguably the best-known and perhaps the most controversial. The novel follows the fortunes of Janie Crawford, a woman living in the black town of Eaton, Florida. Hurston sets up her characters and her locale in the first chapter, which, along with the last, acts as a framing device for the story of Janie's life. Unlike Wright and Ralph Ellison, Hurston does not write explicitly about black people in the context of a white world--a fact that earned her scathing criticism from the social realists--but she doesn't ignore the impact of black-white relations either: It was the time for sitting on porches beside the road. It was the time to hear things and talk. These sitters had been tongueless, earless, eyeless conveniences all day long. Mules and other brutes had occupied their skins. But now, the sun and the bossman were gone, so the skins felt powerful and human. They became lords of sounds and lesser things. They passed nations through their mouths. They sat in judgment. One person the citizens of Eaton are inclined to judge is Janie Crawford, who has married three men and been tried for the murder of one of them. Janie feels no compulsion to justify herself to the town, but she does explain herself to her friend, Phoeby, with the implicit understanding that Phoeby can "tell 'em what Ah say if you wants to. Dat's just de same as me 'cause mah tongue is in mah friend's mouf." Hurston's use of dialect enraged other African American writers such as Wright, who accused her of pandering to white readers by giving them the black stereotypes they expected. Decades later, however, outrage has been replaced by admiration for her depictions of black life, and especially the lives of black women. In Their Eyes Were Watching God Zora Neale Hurston breathes humanity into both her men and women, and allows them to speak in their own voices. --Alix Wilber, 66093011, Klassiker, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 67221011, Action & Abenteuer, 67916011, Anthologien, 67220011, Buch zum Film, 67923011, Familiensagen, 67924011, Historisch, 67223011, Horror, 67926011, Krieg, 273042011, Medizin, 273043011, Metaphysisch, 67925011, Männerabenteuer, 67219011, Märchen, 67217011, Politisch, 55229011, Religion & Esoterik, 65642011, Schwul & Lesbisch, 1322750031, Seeabenteuer, 67218011, Sport, 67927011, Western, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 59283011, Jugendbücher, 59284011, Biographien & Memoiren, 59291011, Geschichte & Historische Romane, 59298011, Horror, 59364011, Körper & Geist, 59350011, Literatur & Belletristik, 59606011, Mangas, 59299011, Mystery, 59300011, Nachschlagewerke, 59344011, Religion & Spiritualität, 59360011, Schule & Sport, 59305011, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 59373011, Soziale Themen, 59599011, Wissenschaft & Technik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Virago Modern Classics: Their Eyes were watching God - A Novel - Paperback

1986, ISBN: 9780860685241

[ED: Taschenbuch / Paperback], [PU: Virago Press], KURZE BESCHREIBUNG/ANMERKUNGEN: Zora Neale Hurston's masterpiece is perhaps the most widely read and highly regarded novel in the entire canon of African American literature. AUSFÜHRLICHERE BESCHREIBUNG: When Janie, at sixteen, is caught kissing shiftless Johnny Taylor, her grandmother swiftly marries her off to an old man with sixty acres. Janie endures two stifling marriages before meeting the man of her dreams, who offers not diamonds, but a packet of flowering seeds ... 'For me, THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD is one of the very greatest American novels of the 20th century. It is so lyrical it should be sentimental it is so passionate it should be overwrought, but it is instead a rigorous, convincing and dazzling piece of prose, as emotionally satisfying as it is impressive. There is no novel I love more' Zadie Smith BUCHBESPRECHUNG: For me, Their Eyes Were Watching God is one of the very greatest American novels of the 20th century. It is so lyrical it should be sentimental it is so passionate it should be overwrought, but it is instead a rigorous, convincing and dazzling piece of prose, as emotionally satisfying as it is impressive. There is no novel I love more Zadie Smith BIOGRAFIEN: Hurston, Zora Neale (US): Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) wuchs in Eatonville, Florida, einer rein schwarzen Gemeinde, auf. Erst als Erwachsene wurde ihr die soziale Bedeutung ihrer Hautfarbe bewusst. Im New York der 1920er gehörte sie zur Harlem Renaissance und veröffentlichte erste Texte. Als Anthropologin reiste sie viel, so auch nach Haiti. Sie starb von der Öffentlichkeit vergessen und in Armut. Smith, Zadie (GB): Zadie Smith, 1975 geboren in Willesden, halb Jamaikanerin, halb Britin, lebt mit ihrer Mutter in Willesden Green, einer multikulturellen Gegend im Norden Londons. Mit dem Schreiben begann sie während ihres Examens am King's College in Cambridge, "als Ausgleich zu dem langweiligen Lernen". Mit ihrem Debüt avancierte sie zum Liebling der Literaturszene. 2006 erhielt sie den Orange-Literaturpreis., DE, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, H: 196mm, B: 128mm, T: 24mm, 272, [GW: 242g], Selbstabholung und Barzahlung, PayPal, offene Rechnung, Banküberweisung, Interntationaler Versand
