The eyes are watching god By precious

The eyes are watching god by Zora neale Hurston explores many topics but mainly focuses on love witch reveals the truth about jannie how she wants to be loved

The theme is evident because between the main character and the time that she have known all of her boyfriends she haven't quite found the right one until she meets Tea Cake

"There are years that ask questions and years that answer." (Jannie44) jannie is asking for time "If you kin see de light at daybreak, you don't keer if you die at dusk it's so many people never seen de light at all" (jannie 68) if jannie could see the good in the bad everything would be okay " some people could look at a mud puddle and see an ocean with ships" (jannie44) how she found the good in the ugliest places

All the previous quotes show that no matter how hard things get she must continue to push through

Janie starks is a young lady who is searching for love in all of the wrong places she is married off at a young age to an older man witch she doesn't like her grandma does it to make sure she is good after she shortly passes away she Janie is left with a man who she thought was her love but he starts becoming controlling and later after that she leaves him and find her next husband witch is tea cake she think he is the player type because he's a younger man and jannie knows she is way older then him and all he wants his her money she is uncertain and I wouldn't say desperate but she wants to find her true love.
