  • Symbol
  • At the beginning when Millicent is meeting Bev I pictured a stairwell of an apartment building with bev at the entrance to a big door and her with a face of Disgust "And there was an unpleasant anonymity about the label "gopher," even if that was what they always cilled the girls being initiated . It was degrading, like being given a number. It was a denial of individuality"
  • Setting
  • Towards the end when Millicent is realizing that she didn't need to join the sorority she saw herself as a heather bird all free and different from all the rest so it represents INDEPENDENCE "for some reason, Millicent thought of the heather birds.Swooping carefree over the moors, they would go singing and crying out across the great spaces of air, dipping and darting, strong and proud in their freedom and their sometime loneliness. It was then that she made her decision"
  • Theme
  • Throughout the whole story all the sorority girls acted the same and they are all bunched up and depended on each other so they were the same like a crow. They act the same they look the same they need each other. "the sparrows were still chirping, and as she lay in bed Millicent visualized them, pale gray-brown birds in a flock, one like the other, all exactly alike"
  • Charactor
  • The setting is in betty johnson's basement because the whole story is a flashback and shes waiting for her last initiation. "The door behind her opened and a ray of light sliced across the soft gloom of the basement room. "Hey Millicent, come on out now. This is it." There were some of the girls outside" "Seated now on the woodpile in Betsy Johnson's cellar, Millicent knew that she had come triumphant through the trial of fire"
  • The theme is independence. Because at the end when Millicent is leaving the company of the man on the bus she realized that she didn't have to be in a club to feel related to human beings. "So many people were shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them. And really, you didn't have to belong to a club to feel related to other human beings"
  • Bev is unhappy, she is always unexcited and serious about everything. Bev is not a very good person. " Get up, gopher," Bev ordered .There was something about her tone that annoyed Millicent". It was degrading, like being given a number. It was a denial of individuality, Rebellion flooded through her"
