Period 5: The Metonymy (Substitution) of Janie's Goals

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to our class blog, and to our first assignment of the Spring 2010 semester.

For this post, please address the evolution of Janie's goals in Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God. How have Janie's goals for herself changed since meeting Tea Cake? How do these objectives compare/contrast to your own opinion of what an independent woman should be?

In order to receive credit, please include the following:

Your opinion regarding the characteristics of an independent woman
Whether or not you feel that Janie is still independent after meeting Tea Cake
At least three specific textual examples of supporting your argument regarding Janie's role
Complete sentences
Proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation
Your name
