The Mule-Bone: A Comedy. by, Zora Neale Hurston Funny Play I really got a kick out of this play. The sayings reminded me of a friend I lost recently, who would always say these down home sayings. I asked her more than once if she was from down south and she told me she was from Baltimore.

The Mule-Bone: A Comedy. Sure seemed like she was back woods Florida and this play! Zora Neale's characters are real. They say the things I've heard many times from people I know. I laughed out loud while reading; "Yo head look like it done wore out three bodies

Set in Eatonville, Florida-Hurston's hometown and the inspiration for much of her fiction-this energetic and often farcical play centers on Jim and Dave, a two-man song-and-dance team, and Daisy, the woman who comes between them.

Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life in Three Acts. This is my conclusion about The Mule Bone: Hurston had not written drama before but Hughes had written at least one incredibly powerful short drama and several other plays (mostly all set in NY, but including a terrible play set in the south); it was inspired by Hurston's story and that story provides the plot; the dialogue is clearly hers.

The Mule-Bone: A Comedy... by, Zora Neale Hurston
Funny Play
I really got a kick out of this play. The sayings reminded me of a friend I lost recently, who would always say these down home sayings. I asked her more than once if she was from down south and she told me she was from Baltimore. Sure seemed like she was back woods Florida and this play!
Zora Neale's characters are real. They say the things I've heard many times from people I know. I laughed out loud while reading; "Yo head look like it done wore out three bodies. Talkin' `bout me smellin' you smell lak a nest of grand daddies yo'selfr."
There are several story lines in this play. One was about the rivalry of the Methodist and the Baptist in this small town. Another was the rivalry between two young men over the town "hussey". Among others. The ending was disappointing; I wanted it to go on, but it looked as though the whole town was ready to come to blows and my imagination needed to do something...

This was another Kindle "free" book, thanks Kindle.

It's a play I wish could be staged today. Maybe on a college campus or as part of a dedicated festival. I'd love to see it.

As stated in my title, the Kindle edition of this play is missing a lot - the entire third act, to be specific. This naturally plays a huge part in reader enjoyment - no climax, no denouement, no real sense of character development - in fact, no real sense of what ultimately drives the story and its people. It's really just getting started by the second act curtain, and there's simply nothing beyond that curtain in the Kindle version. If you're unfamiliar with the play you'll be sadly disappointed in this edition.

I love Zora Neale Hurston. I have read most of her works.

Loved it. Gave it to my professor of Harlem Renaissance Literature as a gift after I finished with it. He was delighted. Said it was one of his favorites.

This is a fascinating play that is definitely worth reading, but if you buy (or rather download, given that it's free) this Kindle version, be forewarned - it's missing the entire third act!

Although I was initially concerned about the library tag label on the spine of the book, I concluded that Amazon must have gotten the book as a result of a library book sale or give away. The text was in good condition and was delivered earlier than I anticipated. I was pleased with my overall consumer experience with Amazon.com on this purchase.
Witty, charming. Hurston tells a story like very few others and has a fine sense of humor. Read it with pleasure.
