After reading chapter 16,17 and 18 Zora Neale Hurston keeps contrasting Janie with Mrs.Turner in chapter 16 and 17, show how different they are and what kind of person Janie is.One quote on page 163 that shows a conversation with Janie and Mrs.
Authors use foil characters to highlight a character’s qualities and actions in a novel. For example, in the Harry Potter series, Malfoy is Harry’s foil character. J.K. Rowling uses Malfoy to convey Harry’s intentions and personality in the book, for purposes of making the reader understand. While Malfoy is less important, obnoxious, a show-off, materialistic and evil, Harry’s contrast shows how important he is throughout the series.
In Chapters 13, 14, and 15 in Their Eyes Were watching God by Zora Hurston, Janie and her husband Tea Cake begin their relationship with difficulty. Jaine is sick and tired of Tea Cake's reactions towards things, and is thinking that he might be cheating on her. Teacake on the other hand is just calling her old and that she is worthless and he doesn’t understand why she is acting like if she was young when she is old and she can’t go back to being young any more. Teacake leaves and steals Janie’s money which she worked hard for.
So in the book, Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, the author creates a foil character. A foil character is who serves as a contrast to another more primary character, so as to point out specific traits of the primary character. The author uses Mrs. Turner as a foil character. Mrs.
In chapters 13, 14, and 15 of Their Eyes Were Watching God, it is primarily preoccupied with the art of love. Love has many mysteries but what we do know is that there are many patterns. Love is important in our lives because it is portrayed everywhere. It is portrayed in movies, horoscopes, advertisements, etc. Love plays a huge role in this book and Zora Neale Hurston wants to demonstrate that love hurts.
I think what Tea Cake did to Janie was messed up because it is their first night together. I wonder where Tea Cake have went off to because he didn’t come back. Janie is wondering where Tea Cake has been because her $200 dollars went missing as well. Why would Tea Cake take Janie’s money. Was he going to do something else with the money?
I just finished reading chapter 13, 14, and 15 of Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. What I think about Tea Cake is he's a bad husband because he beats Janie, but he's Janie 3rd husband, and she feels real love for the first time. Janie was worried about Tea Cake's adventure because of Tea Cake's gambling. It shows that Jaine does care for him since she's worried about Tea Cake. The way Janie changes in Chapter 14 is she's starting to wear pants and she also learns how to shoot a gun.
Chapters 13, 14 and 15 in Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston deals a lot with Janie’s character and the way her relationship with Tea Cake is affected by it. I think that Tea Cake’s story about where he was and what he was doing in Chapter 13 was doubtful. There is no excuse for Tea Cake to have left with the money for a day. He went out to have fun while Janie was wondering if Tea Cake had left her. There is something that caught my attention on page 146 where Janie says,
After reading Chapter 13 in Their Eyes Were Watching God, I'm thinking that Tea Cake doesn’t look like the right person for Janie. Now that she has a job and a house and money on her side, it seems like Tea Cake is willing to take advantage of that. Janie is old and Tea Cake is a young man, and from my point of view all he wants is her money. Janie got stuck with the wrong guy again. On page 147 there was a part where Janie was trying to control Tea Cake or give Tea Cake another chance for his mistake and she responded is kiss-up way.
Their Eyes Were Watching God is a really intriging book. I love how the characters communicate with each other and every scenery that is going on. On pages 98-100 Zora Neal Hurston, she explains how Janie and Jody interacts with each other. There was this quote that stood out for me when it said ""Naw, Ah ain't no young gal no mo' but den Ah ain't old woman
neiter. Ah reckon Ah looks mah age too. But Ah'm uh woman every inch of
me, and Ah know it. Dat's uh whole lote more'n you kin say. You
In many religions there are parents that decide their child’s future life partner mostly women's, the child has no say. it docent matter if you don't like the person you are about to marry. up till today many parents still do that, they may love there children's to death but parents would always want whats best for them and specially for women. Often parents think that where there is money, wealth there would be happiness and peace, when that is not fully true. where there is money there would always be a mistreatment involved.
In Their Eyes Were Watching God, the characters, Janie and Joe are wife and husband, but the way they interact with one another seems to say otherwise. A married couple stands at a equal height, but in Janie‘s case, she seems to be put down to a lower level by Joe.
book is particularly preoccupied with the slavery that existed. This is
still an important issue in our society right now because there is some
slavery still going on but in most cases we don’t find out about it
until it’s too late to help. On page 75, there is one of these passages
been reading, “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston and
it is getting more interesting. New things are happening since Janie
left Logan for Joe. Joe and Janie have an okay relationship. Joe is more
worried about becoming the mayor but he does put some attention to
the story, “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston, there
is new changes happening. I think that Janie made the right decision in
Chapter 4. Janie run away with a new guy named Joe and left her husband,
Logan Killicks. She was unhappy next to him and Joe was the one
“Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston, there is a lot of
comparison between women and men throughout the whole story. This makes
me think about the difference that exists between women and men. I
think that men don’t show emotions and focus mainly on their own goals.
her abrupt leave from her previous husband Logan, Janie set out to live
with Joe Starks. He is a man that is wealthy and heard a new town was
being created, he wanted to be a big voice there. Starks is a very
ambitious character, but stumbled upon the pretty Janie and decided to
bring her along on his ride to royalty in a new town.
Life is not easy and things happen for a reason. When you listen to your heart and nobody else you will be able to know where you belong. Not everyone is the same and everyone is different in their own unique way. Sometimes people do not follow their dreams and they end up in the wrong path in where they really want to be. If people were to open their eyes, they would be able to see what life really is and also everyone makes mistakes, its not like everyone is perfect.
Change occurs in everyone's life. Sometimes change comes in different "sizes" and "shapes." For example, a life-changing decision can be to move to a new city or town, to start a whole "new" life. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie does exactly that; she moves to a new place with Tea Cake.
I am loving Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neal Hurston because the book has dramatically changed since the last discussion post I made on the book. An example of what I mean is on page 138.
Most people love ice cream, whether it's chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. Consider, a hot summer's day you're irritated because of the heat, and you are contending with that one annoying sibling who finds it amusing to put ice cubes down your back. There is nothing better than a nice sweet ice cream cone. Cool to the touch and easy on the lips, an ice cream cone can be that one thing that whisks you off, sending you into a “fantasy” of pleasure on a hot summer's day.
As I keep reading Their Eyes Were Watching God, I can't help, but to think how great this book is. I love the scenery, characters, slang, time period and plot. Zora Neal Hurston brings a very good point of pages 98-100 on how she makes me see Janie and Jody during these two pages. One quote that gave me a point of view on Janie was: "Naw, Ah ain't no young gal no mo' but den Ah ain't no old woman neiter. Ah reckon Ah looks mah age too. But Ah'm uh woman every inch of me, and Ah know it. Dat's uh whole lote more'n you kin say.
Love. This is probably the most powerful word in the English language. So many wonder what it is like to feel love or when you have it what you do with it. These are questions that one can not answer for you...you have to search within your self.
I am reading the book Their Eyes Were Watching God and I like it. This book is particularly preoccupied with symbolism. This is still and interesting issue in our society because students learn about it in U.S. History and will never forget what happened during this time period. The mule in the book has a special “meaning” because of its nature and what the animal is. A mule is typically a hard worker and sometimes exploited for its ability to carry things.
