The Awakening VS Their Eyes Were Watching God
The Awakening VS Their Eyes Were Watching God:Edna Pontelier who is a married woman from Kentucky is Chopin’s Heroine since she has almost everything that every female would like to have or need, based on the society’s standards. On the other side, in Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie is brought as an African American Woman rose by her grandmother in Florida, who was once a slave but works hard to provide Janie with all that is necessary in life and what herself never got. Janie and Edna belong almost to the same era, but the gap between their historical backgrounds is big.
———————————-Middle of paper——————————-
Both Edna and Janie are looking for romantic liberty and saying their own right to be with people who loves them equally, but Edna is unable to change the society in the way Janie does. On her side, Edna remains in the Gulf while Janie express grief with Tea Cake but also discovers that she has more control now than before. Janie is now able to choose what she wants to retain as memory of Tea Cake and what to let go (Hurston 193). Janie awakens in a world that Edna could not control and, hence bring out Their Eyes Were Watching a substantially more radical compared to The Awakening.
