The rediscovery of Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, first published in 1937 but subsequently out-of-print for decades, marks one of the most dramatic chapters in African-American literature and Women's Studies. Its popularity owes much to the lyricism of the prose, the pitch-perfect rendition of black vernacular English, and the memorable characters--most notably, Janie Crawford. Collecting the most widely cited and influential essays published on Hurston's classic novel over the last quarter century, this Casebook presents contesting viewpoints by Hazel Carby, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Barbara Johnson, Carla Kaplan, Daphne Lamothe, Mary Helen Washington, and Sherley Anne Williams. The volume also includes a statement Hurston submitted to a reference book on twentieth-century authors in 1942. As it records the major debates the novel has sparked on issues of language and identity, feminism and racial politics, A Casebook charts new directions for future critics and affirms the classic status of the novel.

"Although many critics have noted the blues themes, characters, and settings in Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, none addresses the way Hurston recreates elements of blues music in her novel. This thesis aims to establish the ways Hurston uses blues musical techniques in Their Eyes Were Watching God, arguing that scholarship fails to address three critical components of blues music that Hurston weaves throughout the text: rhythm, rhyme, and repetition. The thesis argues that Hurston's use of blues music in the novel developed from her initial, focused research on sounds. Hurston's understanding of music evolved from her dedication to sound studies; her use of the rhythm and rhyme of blues music allowed her to capture the vernacular of the South on the page. My analysis shows how the blues of Hurston's novel not only manifests thematically, as others have argued, but that the vernacular prose is lyrical; it rhymes, moves, and sounds like a blues song."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
