  • Vor ihren Augen sahen sie Gott (Originaltitel: Their Eyes Were Watching God) ist der Titel der aktuellen deutschen Fassung eines 1937 erschienenen Romans der afro-amerikanischen Autorin Zora Neale Hurston und ihr bekanntestes Werk. Hurston schrieb den Roman innerhalb von sieben Wochen auf einer anthropologischen Reise nach Haiti. Das Buch spielt im Florida des 20. Jahrhunderts und handelt vom Leben der Protagonistin Janie Crawford und ihrem Erwachen aus einem machtlosen Dasein, als sie die Zügel über ihr Schicksal in die eigene Hand nimmt. Hurstons Werk wurde zunächst nach erster Publikation von Kritikern wegen des verwendeten sprachlichen Stiles verpönt, doch gut 40 Jahre später erlangte die Geschichte neue Bedeutung in der Literatur für die Thematik des Schwarzen Feminismus. TIME wählte „Their Eyes Were Watching God“ 2005 unter die besten 100 englischsprachigen Romane seit 1923. (de)

  • Their Eyes Were Watching God is a 1937 novel by American writer Zora Neale Hurston. It is considered a classic of the Harlem Renaissance, and Hurston's best known work. The novel explores main character Janie Crawford's "ripening from a vibrant, but voiceless, teenage girl into a woman with her finger on the trigger of her own destiny". Set in central and southern Florida in the early 20th century, the novel was initially poorly received. Since the late 20th century, it has been regarded as influential to both African-American literature and women's literature. TIME included the novel in its 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels published since 1923. (en)
  • I loro occhi guardavano Dio, noto anche come Con gli occhi rivolti al cielo (Their Eyes Were Watching God, 1937), è l'opera più famosa di Zora Neale Hurston, scrittrice afroamericana dell'Harlem Renaissance. Venne scritto mentre l'autrice si trovava ad Haiti per uno studio antropologico. Il romanzo è però ambientato in Florida. I loro occhi guardavano Dio è stato pubblicato per la prima volta in Italia nel maggio del 1938 da "Frassinelli tipografo editore, via Conte Verde, 9 Torino". Ciò è per certi versi sorprendente visto il periodo storico poco propizio a un libro così aperto e non razzista, che esprime una visione della realtà dei neri, delle loro aspirazioni, dei loro sentimenti, dalla loro prospettiva. Non va dimenticato che l'autrice è afroamericana. (it)
