Born in Alabama in 1891, Zora Neale Hurston became a fixture of New York City’s Harlem Renaissance, thanks to novels like Their Eyes Were Watching God and shorter works like “Sweat.” She was also an outstanding folklorist and anthropologist who recorded cultural history, as illustrated by her Mules and Men. Hurston died in poverty in 1960, before a revival of interest led to a posthumous recognition of her accomplishments.
Upon receiving a Guggenheim fellowship, Hurston traveled to Haiti and wrote what would become her most famous work: Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937). The novel tells the story of Janie Mae Crawford, who learns the value of self-reliance through multiple marriages and tragedy.
