Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

For this week’s discussion assignment, you should write a well developed and supported paragraph detailing your initial personal responses to Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, as well as your reactions to learning about her life through the assigned links.

While you are not limited to nor required to use these questions/prompts as the basis for your post, you may feel free to consider including any or all of the following points in your paragraph:

1. What do you think of Janie and the way Hurston develops her character?

2. What difficulties, if any, are you experiencing with the text of the novel?

3. Discuss the significance of the setting of the novel. (Note that most of Hurston’s contemporaries were setting their works of fiction and drama in northern cities like New York, Detroit, and Chicago.)

4. Discuss Janie’s relationship with her grandmother.

5. Share what you have found most interesting about Hurston’s biography and contributions to American literature.
