Theme 1: Their Eyes Were Watching God

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Zora Neale Hurston, 1937
Famous for: Three husbands, two very different narrative voices, and one terrifying rabid dog.

Between the rural Southern Dialect and the lofty poetic language, sometimes it’s hard to figure out what’s what in Their Eyes Were Watching God. We’ll make it easy for you by telling you that this book’s first theme is the need to find your voice. And then we’ll make it even easier for you by telling you that the alternating types of language in Their Eyes Were Watching God actually reinforce this theme. Press play for more.
