Summary
"Filtered through black womanist perspectives, Zora Neale Hurston: The Breath of Her Voice breaks new ground through innovation and imagination, by fusing interpretive methods in ethnographic writing and literary studies. Intrinsically referencing contemporary epistemological issues in ethnographic writing and literary canonicity, Dr. Karanja illuminates fragments of Hurston's life through an exploration of her novels and folklore collections. In doing so, she bridges disciplines to construct a postmodern text that "speaks" directly and formidably to oral literature and to the writer's and reader's collaboration in the production of textual meanings."--BOOK JACKET
