This collection of previously published essays concerning Zora Neale Hurston's most widely read and widely taught novel will be useful to both students and scholars. As Professor Cheryl Wall notes in her introduction, Their Eyes Were Watching God has recently attained canonical status, due in large part to the proliferation of critical interest in the novel. Wall has selected essays that provide both a clear overview of the novel's critical history and substantial insight into debates that continue to influence responses to Hurston's work.
