Inhaltsangabe: Book by Moylan Virginia Lynn

Críticas: "With a cover designed to resemble the Harper Perennial editions of Hurston's fiction, this book embodies the affirmative spirit of its subject. This is so even though Moylan (independent scholar) is chronicling Hurston's last, difficult decade, in which she was unemployed, her works were out of print, and her solidarity with the African American community was diminished by her dislike of the Supreme Court's desegregation ruling. Despite some mistakes (e.g., the right-wing Florida senator Hurston supported was Spessard Holland, not "Spencer"), Moylan proves a reliable, informative guide. The reader learns about unfinished projects like the picaresque "The Lives of Barney Turk." She provides a crucial, deft analysis of Hurston's unpublished novel on King Herod the Great, in which Hurston attempted both an anticommunist allegory and a revision of normative biblical history. And Moylan gives a judicious account of Hurston'sattitude toward desegregation, writing that Hurston feared it would rob "black children of traditions that contributed to their individual and cultural identities." Hurston got it wrong, but few people got both anticommunism and antiracism right in that era. Moylan shows that however uncomfortable one might feel with Hurston's later years, they are an integral part of this great American writer's story. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division" --Choiceundergraduates and above. N.

Buchbeschreibung University Press of Florida, United States, 2011. Hardback. Zustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An intriguing investigation of the famous writer s turbulent final years Courage is the last word that Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her letters. And Hurston s courage is what Virginia Lynn Moylan documents in this moving and meticulously researched account of the end of Hurston s life. --Anna Lillios, author ofCrossing the Creek Moylan s account of Hurston s last decade contributes to our understanding of a complex artist and individual--one who was pivotal in the creation of the first anthropologically correct baby doll and yet opposed court-ordered desegregation. --M. Genevieve West, author ofZora Neale Hurston and American Literary Culture Hats off to Virginia Lynn Moylan for filling in missing pieces of Hurston s life story. This sympathetic biography of Hurston s last years is both a lively introduction to her life and a must-have book for Hurston fans. . . . Add[s] heft and richness to our understanding of all that Hurston was up against and just how much she achieved, in spite of the odds. --Carla Kaplan, author of Zora Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters In 1948, false accusations of child molestation all but erased the reputation and career Zora Neale Hurston had worked for decades to build. Sensationalized in the profit-seeking press and relentlessly pursued by a prosecution more interested in a personal crusade than justice, the morals charge brought against her nearly drove her to suicide. But she lived on. She lived on past her accuser s admission that he had fabricated his whole story. She lived on for another twelve years, during which time she participated in some of the most remarkable events, movements, and projects of the day. Since her death, scholars and the public have rediscovered Hurston s work and conscientiously researched her biography. Nevertheless, the last decade of her life has remained relatively unexplored. Virginia Moylan fills in the details--investigating subjects as varied as Hurston s reporting on the trial of Ruby McCollum (a black woman convicted of murdering her white lover), her participation in designing an anthropologically correct black baby doll to combat stereotypes, her impassioned and radical biography of King Herod, and her controversial objections to court-ordered desegregation. Virginia Lynn Moylan, educator and independent scholar, is a founding member of the Fort Pierce, Florida, Annual Zora Festival and a contributing author to The Inside Light: New Critical Essays on Zora Neale Hurston.
