Connor Kaniewski February 3 January 25 , 2016 American Seeker Commonplace Book Their Eyes Were Watching God Commonplace Book, Chapters 13-15 1. He [Tea Cake] drifted off into sleep and Janie looked down on him and felt a self-crushing love. So her soul crawled out from its hiding place. (Chapter 13 p. 128)” Although Janie goes though an abundance of suffering in Chapter 13, Janie becomes more in love with Tea Cake than before; she feels a complete, powerful, “self-crushing love.” Not only does Tea Cake become a personification of all that Janie desires, but Janie and Tea Cake’s dreams have become one. Through their relationship, Tea Cake has enabled Janie to begin continue her quest in finding the love of her life. Now, Tea Cake is goal of her Janie’s quest. This quote also connects to the theme of gender roles because Hurston place s Janie and Tea Cake on the same level. The conflict of gender has diminished and both characters are seen as of equal important. With both characters equally having power in the relationship , Janie ’s inner self can be manifested.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
