    "Their Eyes Were Watching God" follows a young African

    "Their Eyes Were Watching God" follows a young African American woman named Janie growing up in Florida in the early 20th century as she navigates life through multiple husbands. The book has strong themes of women's oppression a patriarchal society that ranges through multiple social classes. The story was incredible and inspiring truly showing the dexterity of the human soul, it also is full of symbols ranging from a pair tree, a lamp post, and a hurricane each having their significance in the story as well as representing ideals in that time period. The book at times can be hard to read and to focus on because of the thick southern accents used by the characters that do not translate easily to writing. For example in chapter five Janies second husband Joe says “Thank yuh fuh yo’ compliments, but mah wifed don’t know nothin’ ‘bout no speech- makin’… ah never married her for nothin’ lak dat. She’s uh woman and her place is in de home.” This quote not only shows how hard the language is to understand but also overarching things of male oppression. The book is in my opinion and American classic, that provides a great perspective of the social structure among women and African-Americans in the early 20th century.
