Their Eyes Were Watching God

Janies entire life is one of a journey. She lives through a grandmother, three husbands,
and innumerable friends. Throughout is all, she grows closer and closer to her ideals

clearly define her thoughts, but the reader still sees that Janies ideas are romantic and
full of sensuality. The first glimpse into the past that the reader sees involves Janie
