This question of multiple selves is also a problem for Zora Neale Hurston, especially when we consider her approach to black life through the "spy glass of Anthropology." Hurston agreed with Ruth Benedict that "no man ever looks at the world with pristine eyes," for all human beings see it through the lens of "culture," which Benedict defined as "the outward expression of a deeply imagined core of values unique to a people's collective existence." Thus the dilemma for Janie in Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937) lies in acquiring access to the metaphor (the drama of the storefront porch) without being devoured by a communal consciousness that degrades her as a woman.
