The people in Eatonville only focus on her light skin, and treat her like an outsider. The people gossip about her and wonder why she left town with Tea Cake, a younger and poorer man. Throughout her life, Janie is never able to make her own decisions, and is defined by her husbands. Upon her return to Eatonville after the death of her third husband, Tea Cake, Janie discovers who she is, and decides to narrate her story with a powerful female voice. During the storytelling session, Janie talks words of wisdom to Pheoby.
However, Janie appeared to have finally found her true happiness once she met Tea Cake. As I stated earlier Janie Crawford had two previous marriages before eventually meeting Tea Cake and neither of those marriages panned out well either. During her marriage with Logan Killicks she was treated very well for about a year, but soon he would turn her into his servant. Logan would then get her to help him with his framework, and make her feel less than what she should be feeling.
ARGUMENT #2 Introduction Throughout the story, Hanan Shakyhs focuses on a dysfunctional family in the story “The Persian Carpet”.

In the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, Janie goes through many ups -- finding true love, becoming independent -- and downs -- being abused physically and verbally, being subordinate to everyone -- before eventually discovering a complete sense of awareness. Throughout the novel, Hurston uses multiple literary techniques and devices to prove the idea that in order to become completely self aware, people must depend only on themselves and not on others. Throughout the entirety of the book, Hurston challenges the stereotypes of blacks. Hurston disputes the idea that blacks were incapable for love and romance because of their color and their apparent unintelligence (James 230).

Through the years, their love and happiness between each other has decreased to the point where Norma Jean wants to separate. Norma Jean feels as if the spark they once had, would lead to a happier result, for both of them, if they were divorced; Leroy disagrees, and wants to do anything possible to keep the relationship alive.
