Chapters 18 Notes & Questions Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston Notes: - So the chapter starts out with the movements of Indians and animals all away from the Everglades. This is in preparation for the hurricane that seems desperate to hit the land. - Tea Cake doesn’t want to leave and since he is the authority figure, he decides to stay and call the indians stupid. - He says that if the indians knew anything, they would still have their country. - This is Hurston’s voice showing us that race is the problem that should be pushed to the backburner yet Tea Cake still shows the racial divide which furthers the idea of his lack of understanding for the feminist movement. - “They seemed to be staring at the dark, but their eyes were watching God.” (160) - The lake is going to be bursting soon and they are stuck in the struggle of trying to get out of its path. - Motor Boat chooses to stay which might be why his name is motor boat considering the fact that he can swim. - The bridge is completely occupied by the whites of the community.

    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.
