    You will find a thesis statement among these and if you change your mind and decide to write about one of the others, then let me know and I will e-mail the study guides for that book to you, no problem.

    Their Eyes Were Watching God


    Zora Neale Hurston

    Their Eyes Were Watching God study guides contain a biography of Zora Neale Hurston, literature essays, quiz questions, major themes, characters, and a full summary and analysis.

    Janie is a woman who first tries to conform herself to the molds that she has been taught in the form of two very dissatisfying marriages to men who feel compelled to, after heaping praise upon her for her independent spirit, snuff it completely out. After the death of her second husband, Janie chucks social propriety out the window and listens instead to that niggling voice inside that dares her to dream of a better life, even if the person she wants to share that life with is far beneath her on the limiting rungs of social positioning. Instead this man, the charming and appreciative Tea Cake, is a rascal who cares more about enjoying the everyday moments of life than he does for climbing to the top of the dung heap. His very lack of sober seriousness is what draws Janie to him, his living example proof of what is possible for her. Hurston's style is beautiful, her poetic prose balanced perfectly with spot-on accurate renderings of the rural Southern dialect. J.D. Salinger, who I hold in the absolute highest esteem when it comes to rating dialogue, is put to shame by Hurston's ability to craft the slow drawl and missing consonants in her characters' speech. Reading it can not help but conjure each person's voice within your head so that, after a while, it's as though you're listening to a radio telecast rather than reading a book "Throughout the book, Janie's experiences lead her to lack trust in others. The abuse inflicted upon her by her two husbands carves a scar, and the free spirit she once had shrivels up and dies. But inside her, there still is a bit of hope, and when her second husband dies, (bold)Janie(bold) breaks free. Through following her dream of a better life, Janie shows her true spirit, and shows the reader that one must never give up." Yeah, i know, it's the whole intro. thats how i roll yeah... i know. im a ninth grader. lol
