The Risks taken to Achieve Love & Happiness
Transcript of The Risks taken to Achieve Love & Happiness
Individual Oral Presentation Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston The Pear Tree "Beneath the pear tree...She saw a dust-bearing bee sink into the sactum of a bloom; the thousand sister-catalyxes arch to meet the love embrace and the ecstatic shiver of the tree from root to tiniest branch creaming in every blossom and fronting with delight."(page 13) Search For Adventure "She was seeking confirmation of the voice and vision, and everywhere she found and acknowledged answers. A personal answer for all other creations except herself. She felt an answer seeking her, but where? When? How?"(page 14).
Janie: "...you told me Ah mus gointer love him, and, and Ah don't"(page 27)
The Gate "The familiar people and things had failed her so she hung over the gate and looked up the road towards way off"(page 30) Desires
" 'Tain't no mo' fools lak me. A whole lot of mens will grin in yo' face, but dey ain't gwine tuh work and feed yuh. You won't git far and you won't be long, when dat big gut reach over and grab dat little one, you'll be too glad to come back here:"(page 36)
"Janie hurried out of the front gate and turned south. Even if Joe was not there waiting for her, the change was bound to do her good" (page 38) Consequence "She had no more blossomy openings dusting pollen over her man, neither glistening young fruit where the petals used to be"(page 85) "She was a rut in the road. Plenty of life beneath the surface but it was kept beaten down by the wheels" (page 90) "Now and again she thought of a country road at sun-up and considered flight. To where? To what? Then too she considered thirty-five is twice seventeen and nothing was the same at all" (page 90) "There are years that ask questions and years that answer. Janie had no chance to know things, so she had to ask. Did marriage end the cosmic loneliness of the unmated? Did marriage compel love like the sun the day?" (page 25). Starting Love With Tea Cake "He could be a bee to a blossom-a pear tree blossom in the spring...a glance from God"(page 126) "Doubt. All fears that circumstance could provide and the heart feel, attacked her on every side." (page 128) "Dis uh love game. Ah done lived Grandma's way, now Ah means tuh live mine"(page 134). "If you kin see de light at daybreak, you don't keer if you die at dusk. It's so many people never seen de light at all. Ah wuz fumblin' round and God opened de door."(page 186). Worth Behind Risk "Once upon uh time, Ah never 'spected nothin', Tea Cake, but bein' dead from standin' still and tryin' tuh laugh. But you come 'long and made somethin' outa me. So Ah'm thankful fuh anything we come through together" (page 195) "She pulled in her horizon...She called in her soul to come and see"(page 227) "The sun was gone, but he had left his footprints in the sky." (page 1) "Janie pulled back a long time because he did not represent sun-up and pollen and blooming trees, but he spoke for far horizon"(page 35)
