Their Eyes Were Watching God


Category: Feminism

Author: Zora Neal Hurston

Summary: The novel follows the fortunes of Janie Crawford, a woman living in the black town of Eaton, Florida. One person the citizens of Eaton are inclined to judge is Janie Crawford, who has married three men and been tried for the murder of one of them. Janie feels no compulsion to justify herself to the town, but she does explain herself to her friend, Phoeby, with the implicit understanding that Phoeby can "tell 'em what Ah say if you wants to. Dat's just de same as me 'cause mah tongue is in mah friend's mouf."
