This book explores the retelling of the life of Moses in three 20th-century American narratives: Moses in Red, by Lincoln Steffens; Moses, Man of the Mountain, by Zora Neale Hurston; and Cecil B. DeMille's film, The Ten Commandments. Wright's analysis reveals that the figure of Moses has strong currency in American culture at many levels.Table of Contents1 Introduction 2 Back to the Future: Lincoln Steffen's Moses in Red (1926) 3 If Moses Was a Mulatto: Zora Neale Hurston's Moses, Man of the Mountain (1939) 4 Coming in from the Cold (War): Cecil B.
