While Janie’s Nanny forces her into marrying Logan Killicks for security; Logan also lacks love and compassion for Janie and silences her. Janie cannot use her voice when she marries Logan Killicks because of her Nanny. Although Janie knows “exactly whut” she wants to say; expressing her voice is “hard to do” (Hurston 8).

At once, she has to cope not just with the consequences of her romance, but also she has to accept a new role of mother and women in the house of the Bundren family. While other relatives have chance to manifest their feelings about the journey to Jefferson, she is ignored and feels rather alone.She is looking for a solution from her precarious situation, but she fails all the way.

This quote shows that even Juliet knows that she cannot be with Romeo because of the feud and because she knows her parents will not allow it. If the family feud had not existed, or her parents had been more accepting and lenient, Romeo and Juliet would have been married without resistance and they could have lived a long, fulfilled life together. In this case, it is not fate that denies her love for Romeo but rather her parents’ hatred towards the Montague

Many of Janie’s relationships parallel one another. For instance, Jody and Janie’s relationship parallels with Tea Cake and Janie’s relationship. These relationships are similar due to the fact that neither of these relationships totally "spoon feed" Janie, meaning that she is not totally dependent on neither man. Jody took away from her personality, while Tea Cake was able to support Janie and help her find her real true self that she never had the opportunity of doing before. These two relationships differentiate because Jody restricts Janie and Tea Cake lets her do whatever she pleases.
