Chapters 4-6 Notes & Questions Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston Chapter 4 Notes: - At the start of the chapter Janie talks about how she realizes that the love she once had for her husband is no longer. - Saying, “ Long before a year was up, Janie noticed that her husband had stopped talking in rhymes to her.” - Chapter four is in stark contrast to how Janie was portrayed in chapter one. In this chapter, she takes the more standard feminine role. - Sexism is shown when it is said that the mule is so tame that “even” a woman can handle him. - Joe Starks’ character is introduced: - City dweller from Georgia (assuming) - He is like her prince charming - Mr. Killicks is the one person in the story so far who really does love her and it is not for her body, but rather he wants to to make her independant. Chapter 4 Questions: 1. Joe Starks represents Janie’s “Prince Charming”, or in other words, the person that will get her out of a situation that she no longer wants to be in and offer her this better life that has no guarantee to it. He is the type of love that is built on hope, he promises these visions of grandeur but their is always only just a chance to it.

    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.
