In the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, home to Janie is a place that has both positive and negative associations- the pear tree. Janie constantly goes to the pear tree for comfort; it is her place of happiness, peace and her love life. At the same time, Janie has the pear tree embedded in her mind. She constantly compares her partners to the pear tree and what their love should be like; so when the thought of an unwelcoming incident pops up in her head, he is tarnishing her pear tree. At sixteen, Janie’s grandmother caught her kissing Johnny Taylor; Janie spends most of her day under the pear tree in her backyard with her mind-boggling questions on virginity, love and marriage.
The bee gathering pollen became a reference for Janie throughout the rest of the story. “He could be a bee to a blossom—a pear tree blossom in the spring,” (Hurston, 1937, p. 106). After seeing the bee and the blossom, Janie wanted to find a connection like that in her life. She

When the baby was born the witch came to the man and the women to take the child away. The witch hid herself and the child far away in the thickest part of the forest in a large tower where no one would ever find them. The child grew up to be the most beautiful child in the kingdom, and she had the longest, most vibrant, golden hair. In fact it is so long that the witch calls to Rapunzel to let down her hair so she may come to and from the tower. Years went on and it was clear that Rapunzel grew lonesome and longed to be away from her mother.
I’d run up to my mom with a bug that I caught from the tree and say something like, “she takes care of so many bug families. Isn’t she so sweet?”. I always called her beautiful because she had “the longest hair I have ever seen”. Later in life, I learned that it was just her long weeping branches. There was a circle of rose bushes around her.
Sarah the Sunflower Seed 1 “Who’s that looking up at me? The farmer’s daughter is who I see.” 2 Far below Sarah Sunflower Seed, a little girl looks up smiling.

In like manner, the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston can be closely associated with Mr. Foster’s “quest formula”. The novel revolves around a main character named Janie who, since a young girl, has always wanted to find true love after witnessing a bee pollinating a pear tree.

Comparatively, this journey that Janie goes on is very much alike to Mr. Foster’s concept
