FC: Imagery Project | By: Jessica Painter

1: Imagery: the formation of mental images, figures, or likenesses of things Hurston uses imagery to describe relationships, goals, and expectations in "Their Eyes Were Watching God".

2: Horizon: "Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men" (Hurston 1).

3: This quote is saying that everyone has dreams and even if the dreams are very far away keep trying to reach those goals.

4: Hair: "She went over to the dresser and looked hard at her skin and features. The young girl was gone, but a handsome woman had taken her place. She tore off the kerchief from her head and let down her plentiful hair" (Hurston 87).

5: This quote is saying that after Joe died she felt free because Joe always wanted Janie to have her hair up.

6: Pear Tree: "Oh to be a pear tree - any tree in bloom! With kissing bees singing of the beginning of the world! She was sixteen. She had glossy leaves and bursting buds and she wanted to struggle with life but it seemed to elude her. (Hurston 11). | This quote is saying that at sixteen Janie wanted to be like a pear tree.

8: Stump: "It was a lonesome place like a stump in the middle of the woods where nobody had ever been" (Hurston 21-22). | This quote is saying that when Janie married Logan it was like her pear tree had been cut down

10: "De black woman is de mule uh de world so fur as Ah can see" (Hurston 14)

11: This quote is saying that the woman is the worker in the family.
