Word Count: 465
A historical connection found in Their Eyes Were Watching God is in Chapter 6 Matt Bonners old mule runs away It is later found in front of the store where some of the men decide to have some fun and irritate it Janie sees this and mumbles to herself her disapproval Jody who is standing nearby hears Janie and decides to buy the mule to give it a peaceful rest of life The townspeople all think this was very noble of Jody They say it was like Lincoln emancipating northern slaves Even though Lincoln was a well-off white man he still decided to fight for the blacks and give them their freedomA literary connection I made is how the story of Janie in Their Eyes Were Watching God is a lot like the story of the Indian daughter Pocahontas in the story Pocahontas Both women were being suppressed by the men in their lives Now Jody was harder on Janie then Pocahontas was by her father and her tribe However both women wanted to explore their surroundings and do new things to try and find themselves Both also were searching for true love and hit some bumps all through their storiesA Present day connection found was in Chapters 5 and 6 Janie learns that maybe her relationship with Jody is not as fun loving and exciting as she thought She was attracted to his big ideas and talk but then his other maybe truer side comes to surface His high status in Eatonville makes him becoming more controlling and mean In present-day times this happens all the time we are attracted to things or people because of the way they look on the outside However when we examine them closer many times we find it to be not as smooth and shiny as we once thoughtA personal connection found for many people is with Janies hair It is a big symbol throughout a pig
