So much of life its meshes! She called in her soul to come and see.”(193) and with the horizon as her cape, as if to show that she was now her own hero, Janie’s quest ended. In conclusion, The Hurston’s use of the horizon as a symbol represents the ultimate and underrated goal of human endeavour: self satisfaction.
