What does Janie think love will be like?

Janie imagined herself as a pear tree and its surrounds in real love "Oh, to be a pear tree in bloom—or any tree in blossom! With loving bees singing of the world's beginning! She was sixteen years old." Janie returns to Nanny after two months and two weeks, moping over her marriage. She imagines that love will make her husband happy and they can have more children.

Love is the feeling that grows between two people who care about each other very much. It is a special feeling that makes you feel warm inside and gives you a sense of happiness. Love is not just a feeling but a state of mind where you feel happy all the time. If someone tells you that he or she loves you, then believe them. It is an amazing feeling to know that someone out there wants you with all their heart.

As far as Janie was concerned, love was what grew between a man and a woman. That was how it had been described to her by her grandmother when she was young and her parents didn't understand why she wanted to marry Richard instead of pursuing a career in music like him. As she got older she realized that they just wanted her to be happy, so she decided to go along with what others wanted because it made them happy too. Then one day she saw some pears on a tree in bloom and they made her think of love.

How does Janie feel about marriage?

Janie recognized the need of equality in a marriage after her marriage to Jody Starks. Marriage, to Janie, represented perfect harmony between two individuals, much like a pear tree and its environs. Janie imagined herself as a pear tree in love with her surroundings; "Oh to be a pear tree—any tree in blossom!" she exclaimed. "But it's marriage that I want, not just lovers playing at being married."'

In order for marriage to exist there must be agreement between a husband and wife. They cannot be equal because only one can be the dominant partner at a time. A husband can't be equal to his wife because he is responsible for providing for his family while she tends to the home and children. In ancient times when women didn't work they stayed at home and cared for their homes and children. If they went out to work they usually had no choice in the matter since their husbands owned all the means of production. This way of thinking causes many problems for women today.

Even though Janie wanted equality in marriage she also knew that this was not possible so she accepted what she could get. She said herself that she was "not a bit sorry" that she had never been able to agree with Jody on certain things. This shows that even though Janie wanted something more than what was offered by Jody she still had confidence in her marriage. She believed that with time Jody would come to see that loving someone completely requires giving them space too.

What is Janie’s view of marriage?

Janie imagined herself as a pear tree in love with her surroundings; "Oh to be a pear tree—any tree in blossom!" she sighed. "But most of all I want to be a plum tree," she added with a smile.

Janie's parents had been farmers who had died when she was very young. She now lived with her uncle, who ran a large grocery store, where she worked during the weekdays. Although she enjoyed working with food, it never gave her an appetite so she spent most of her free time reading. She also liked to walk in the park across from her house. There were many trees there, especially redwoods, which was one of her favorite words. Ever since she was a little girl, they had fascinated her with their huge limbs reaching for the sky and their bright red leaves turning fall colors even before other trees.

When she wasn't reading or walking in the park, Janie dreamed about going to college and becoming a doctor. Her uncle had no objection to her studying hard, so she hoped to finish high school and start college soon. In the meantime, she enjoyed playing piano and singing. Music was so important in Janie's life that she would have traded everything else in order to stay a pianist.

How does Janie develop her ideas of love?

Janie develops an idealized notion of love while laying beneath a pear tree at the beginning of the novel. She is in love with the beauty of spring and is youthful and naïve. Although she knows that true love doesn't exist, she believes that it will come when she is old enough to be married with children.

This naiveté about love is what makes Janie so endearing. She's just a little girl dreaming of true love, which makes her story very relatable to many people. Even though she learns that true love isn't always perfect, she still wants to believe that it exists and that it will find her.

Throughout the course of the novel, Janie meets several men who catch her eye. However, none of them interest her because they don't meet her ideal of what love should be. When Tom arrives on the scene, he instantly captures Janie's heart. He's kind and loving, two traits that most women would want in a husband. However, he is young (about twenty years old) and poor, which means that they can't marry. Despite this, Janie keeps hoping that one day she'll wake up and realize that Tom is actually true love waiting to be discovered.

Eventually, Tom goes off to war and is never heard from again.
