    A collection of eight of Zora Neale Hurston’s short stories spanning from 1925 1942 In all of the stories I loved her use of language and dialect the glossary towards the end was entertaining; some I knew as are now common some I guessed some I wouldn’t have a clueMy favourite was “Sweat” primarily because it was a good look at revenge and justice I also liked “The Gilded Six Bits” which looks at love betrayal and ult

Spunk The Selected Stories of Zora Neale Hurston

And insightful pictures of black life in the South were written between 1924 and 1942 The title story won several awards when it was published in 1925. It is said that Zora Neale Huston s work sparked one of the major literary revivals of our time especially among women writers Reading this slim volume will show a reader why So much variety of both subject matter and style Some of these stories take place in Eatonville Florida some in Harlem and one is about Herod The author had an interest in the true historical Herod not just our perceptions of him The writing here is splendid unusual some of it wrapped up in black man s lingo from the 1950s Unfortunately Hurston died young about 59 years old and didn t live to grace us with stories from a mind that didn t seem to miss a thing The stories and the writing are unusual I d recommend this book to those who like literary works and can appreciate a different culture in a different time

I think this collection of eight short stories is a great introduction to Zora Neale Hurston I loved the passion in these stories the rich dialogue between the characters and Hurston s humour In one story she writes a story Isis about a little girl who I suspect to be Hurston herself overcome with pity by the hopelessness she sees on her grandmother s person and decides to shave off her whiskers I ve read Zora s autobiography Dust Tracks on a Road so I recognized the locale of her upbringing in some of these stories Also knowing that Hurston was interested in the spiritual world and mythology meant I wasn t surprised by some of the themes she explored biblical themes and the supernatural in particular Additionally her respect for different dialects is clear by the fact that she wrote the stories using the southern African American vernacular In particular this uote from Dust Tracks on a Road exemplifies her feelings about language It seemed to me that the human beings I met reacted pretty much the same to the same stimuli Different idiomsyes Circumstances and conditions having power to influence yes Inherent difference no A very enjoyable read

Terary genius and contains such stories as Muttsy Isis Spunk and These eight stories which include intense love stories stories of family relationships. I was assigned Zora Neal Hurston at some point in high school but I didn t read her because I didn t do anything anyone told me to do when I was in high school because I was an asshole In any event this was lots of fun Hurston has a gift for the vernacular I loved her Harlem Bible an idiosyncratic viewpoint and a knowledge of an overlooked at the time aspect of Americana Sorry Ms Cox you were right all along
