Oprah Winfrey’s interpretation of the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God caused a figurative case of the rabies through her Hollywood production. Oprah’s lack of knowledge towards the classic caused her to form a false fairytale romance, along with scarcity of symbolism, and changes in characters and relationships. On top of all of her adjustments, Oprah also made the choice to change the title. Their Eyes Were Watching God went from a reality-depicting novel, to becoming a glistering mockery of a movie production. Oprah’s interpretation of the central theme in the novel did not align with that of Zora Neale Hurston.
