BC: The End! | The End!

FC: By: Sabrina Steckley | Hurston Project

1: Intro Zora Neale Hurston is the author of ''Their Eyes Were Watching God.'' She used imagery throughout the whole story. She uses imagery when describing love, relationships, and places where she went in the book. This book shows examples of racism, discrimination, life lessons, and love. In the story you see the main character, Janie grow more each day. This book inspires me because I want to experience a love like Janey had with Tea Cake that is fun, and adventurous. I want my future to be like a roller coaster, fun, unexpected, and Dizzy!

2: " Ah wants things sweet wid mah marriage lak when you sit under a pear tree and think. Ah..." (Hurston 24) | Blossoming Tree

3: This quote pops up continuously in the story, but having a different view of each time. This imagery quote helps with creating the story-line, and building Janie's character.

5: Hurston used the imagery for the Blossoming Tree perfectly in this book. Janie learns in each relationship what she really wants using the Pear Tree image. This quote helps build the story line, and also builds Janie's character.

6: "Oh to be a pear tree-any tree in bloom! With kissing bees singing of the beginning of the world!" (Hurston 11) | Love and Relationships

7: All Janie wants is the pear tree love, and to sail to the horizon and back. That means she wants to fall in love and experience what love can be like. Janie wants to figure out what love and life has planned for her. Janie is really determined to find the perfect guy that gives her that pear tree love.

9: Love and relationships are the main focus in this story. It helps to show examples of the male and female roles in the relationship. Janey wants to figure out what life wants for her. This quote helps Janey to realize how love shaped her as a person. In the end it really makes her the person she is.

10: This book is very interesting, and informing about how life was back in the day. I found out what life was like for black woman, what life is like for black men, and how it affects our society today. I learned about racism and how people use to be treated. 'Their Eyes Were Watching God" was a very inspirational book for me to read.
