Their Eyes Were Watching God - Mary Helen Washington, Zora Neale Hurston, Henry Louis Gates Jr. While the language hard to understand, even when read aloud to get the inflections presented within the text, overall the book was a very interesting one to read. The amount of underlying themes within the book was staggering and the various names at times ironic. The decision of the author to tell the tale within the view of a frame, being that the story is being told by the character as having happened in the past. This is at times seemingly very apparent as the tale can easily be seen as an exaggeration at various points, and yet the reader can never figure out what was true or whether or not anything had been left out.
