INSTRUCTIONS FOR LITERARY CRITICISM/ RESEARCH PAPER “THEIR EYES WE’RE WATCHING GOD”

In this paper, your goal should be to apply a literary criticism to your understanding of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. This paper should move beyond recalling the literary terminology at play in Hurston’s text. Instead, aim for a larger, more expansive reading of Hurston’s work. Students should use their newly developed critical analysis skills to articulate a thesis with properly documented analysis/use of the text.  This paper should be (at minimum) 5 (five) pages and should contain (at minimum) three (3) secondary sources. The larger questions for this assignment are “What is Hurston doing in this work?”,” Why is Hurston’s work so ingenious?”, “What makes Zora Neale Hurston a remarkable writer?”
