FC: My Perspective of Zora Neale Hurston's Imagery in "Their Eyes Were Watching God"
1: After finished reading Their Eyes Were Watching God" I have chosen 3three main images I feel need to be throughly explained. These images include Black Women and where they placed in their environment after slavery. Followed by Janie's relationships in the story. Janie is the main character who is involved in all three images.I will conclude with Janie's dream's , and then my future goals, expectations and view of relationships I have in store for my future. | I will completely explain everything that occurs to Janie and how it reflects Hurston's imagery she uses throughout the story.
2: Environment and Expectations of Women during Early 1900's. | "So de white man thrown down de load and tell the de black man tuh pick it up. He pick it up because he have to, but he don't tote it. He hand it to his womenfolks. De black woman is de mule uh de world as fur as Ah can see." Granny pg:14 What Granny is telling Janie is black women are slaves to black men who are slaves to white men. Black women not only ran their home but also worked in the fields doing more work then their husbands.
3: Women were highly expected to perform the same tasks as men, and along with the black women being the mules, people stepped on them like when Locust mate and destroy trees. The tree is like a person's feelings and soul in a sense.
4: Relationships "There are years that ask questions and years that answer. Janie had had no chance to know things, so she had to ask. Did marriage end the cosmic loneliness of the unmated? Did marriage compel love like the sun the day?" Hurston pg: 21
5: I think that Hurston is trying to explain that marriage works differently for all. For one person it can mean happiness till death, and for others it can mean death as happiness. This shows that to reach true happiness you need real love, and you have to be yourself around your mate, or else they will fall in love with a being different from your true self.
6: Goals "She pulled in her horizon like a great fish-net. Pulled it in from around the waist of the world and draped it over her shoulder. So much of life in it''s meshes! She called in her soul to come and see." Hurston pg: 193
7: IN this I have the sense that Hurston is telling all that Janie has lived her life the way she wanted. She has found true love, and all though her love has been killed, their marriage and feelings will always last though ever life.
8: When I get older I plan on living a wonderful slow life. In order to fulfill my dream I plan on buying a Porsche so that I can spend time flying down the road when things feel to fast.
9: Another goal is for me to play in the PGA TOUR because golf is one of my favorite hobbies, and you can't find anything that beats a tee shot at sunset, on the 18th hole.
10: Expectations set upon include making lots of money to slide through life of buying the necessary things, and to be an honest thoughtful unselfish Christian who follows the Ten Commandments.
11: When it comes to relationships I personally have never gone out with anyone, but to hear the stories of love makes me feel like a lone tree in a field. Take this picture above as a good example. No one wants to be left out.
