The complete stories by Zora Neale Hurston ( Book )
20 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This landmark gathering of Zora Neale Hurston's short fiction - most of which appeared only in literary magazines during her lifetime and some of which has never been published - reveals the evolution of the talents of one of the most important African-American writers. Spanning the years from 1921, when Howard University's literary magazine published "John Redding Goes to Sea," to 1955, when Hurston was working on different versions of the story of the beheading of John the Baptist as told by Salome's mother, five years before her death, these stories attest to the author's tremendous range at the same time as they establish themes that recur in her longer fiction." "In such stories as "Spunk," "The Gilded Six-Bits," and "The Conscience of the Court," Hurston's customary use of metaphor and black dialect enriches her simple narratives and brings her characters vividly to life. Folklore, the cornerstone of Hurston's fiction, is integral to such stories as "Cock Robin Beale Street," "Book of Harlem," and "'Possum or Pig?" Biblical themes, another trademark Hurston offering, appear in "The Seventh Veil" and "The Bone of Contention." These and the other stories in this collection map, in rich language and imagery, Hurston's development and concerns as a writer and provide an invaluable reflection of the mind and imagination of the author of the acclaimed novel Their Eyes Were Watching God."--BOOK JACKET

Zora Neale Hurston collected plays by Zora Neale Hurston ( )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though she died penniless and forgotten, Zora Neale Hurston is now recognized as a major figure in African American literature. Best known for her 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, she also published numerous short stories and essays, three other novels, and two books on black folklore. Even avid readers of Hurston's prose, however, may be surprised to know that she was also a serious and ambitious playwright throughout her career. Although several of her plays were produced during her lifetime-and some to public acclaim-they have languished in obscurity for years. Even now, most critics and historians gloss over these texts, treating them as supplementary material for understanding her novels. Yet, Hurston's dramatic works stand on their own merits and independently of her fiction. Now, eleven of these forgotten dramatic writings are being published together for the first time in this carefully edited and annotated volume. Filled with lively characters, vibrant images of rural and city life, biblical and folk tales, voodoo, and, most importantly, the blues, readers will discover a "real Negro theater" that embraces all the richness of black life

Sweat by Zora Neale Hurston ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Now frequently anthologized, Zora Neale Hurston's short story "Sweat" was first published in Fire!!, a legendary literary magazine of the Harlem Renaissance, whose sole issue appeared in November 1926. In "Sweat" Hurston claimed the voice that animates her mature fiction, notably the 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God; the themes of marital conflict and the development of spiritual consciousness were introduced as well. "Sweat" exemplifies Hurston's lifelong concern with women's relation to language and the literary possibilities of black vernacular." "This casebook for this story includes an introduction by the editor, a chronology of the author's life, the authoritative text of "Sweat," and a second story, "The Gilded Six-Bits." Published in 1932, this second story was written after Hurston had spent years conducting fieldwork in the southern United States
