Seraph on the Suwanee
Seraph on the Suwanee is a 1948 novel by African-American novelist Zora Neale Hurston. It is her last published novel, and was written after her publisher rejected two novels about black characters.The novel is Hurston's only novel about white characters, exploring "white crackers" in Florida, attempting to create a "true picture of the South". The story follows the experiences of a young woman as she has a fraught relationship with her husband and family.Seraph on the Suwanee has never been well received by African-American critics and scholars, who have often treated the novel as a "contrivance in Hurston's canon".
