This novel about a proud, independent black woman was first published in 1937 and generally dismissed by reviewers. It was out of print for nearly 30 years when the University of Illinois Press reissued it in 1978, at which time it was instantly embraced by the literary establishment as one of the greatest works in the canon of African-American fiction.

Mesmerizing in its immediacy and haunting in its subtlety, Their Eyes Were Watching God tells the story of Janie Crawford—fair-skinned, long-haired, dreamy woman—who comes of age expecting better treatment than what she gets from her three husbands and community. Then she meets Tea Cake, a younger man who captivates Janie's heart and spirit, and offers her the chance to relish life without being one man's mule or another man's adornment.

Zora Neale Hurston: Their Eyes Were Watching God

Az első angol nyelvű regény, amit olvastam. Nehéz volt olvasni a szleng miatt, de aztán hamar ráhangolódtam. Az utolsó két fejezetet végig bőgtem, és ezt nem szégyellem. Nagyon mélyen érintett, és meghatott.

Zora Neale Hurston: Their Eyes Were Watching God

Nehéz erről írnom, mert nem érzem, hogy valamit adott volna nekem – mármint irodalmi szinten. Kivéve a stílust. Hursten gyönyörűen narrálja a történetét (a fekete beszédet még mindig nehéz kibogarászni, de itt elégsz könnyű volt). Maga a történet cselekményes, Janie karaktere figyelemreméltó. Végül is, élveztem a könyvet.
