Their Eyes Were Watching God

‘Their Eyes Were Watching God’ is a novel that has captivated readers for decades. This book delves into the life of Janie Crawford, a woman of mixed race in the early 20th-century American South. The heart of the story lies in Janie’s quest to find her own voice and identity.

Throughout the novel, she experiences three marriages, each offering a different perspective on love and independence. From her oppressive marriage to Logan Killicks to her passionate but flawed relationship with Joe Starks, and finally to her true love, Tea Cake, Janie’s journey is both tumultuous and inspiring.

Hurston’s vivid descriptions bring the setting of Eatonville, Florida, to life. As one of the first all-Black towns in the United States, Eatonville serves as a significant cultural backdrop for the story. The novel also takes readers to the Everglades, where Janie and Tea Cake create a life together, filled with both joy and hardship. The natural beauty and dangers of the environment play a crucial role in shaping the narrative.
