Storyboard Text

  • Flashback
  • "...Then deciding not to join to sorority after all..." ~ Sylvia​ Plath
  • Symbolism
  • "...Heather birds live on the mythological moors and fly about all day long, singing wild and sweet in the sun..." ~ Sylvia Plath
  • Theme
  • "...You didn't have to belong to a club to feel related to other human beings..." ~ Sylvia​ Plath
  • This story both begins and ends with Milicent in a basement of one of the girls in the soroity she is being initiated into. This is an important part of the story, because she is explaining why she isn going to join the soroity.
  • Simile
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar..." ~ Sylvia​ Plath
  • The heather birds in this story symbolize that people gravitate to things that are more beautiful, and sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad.
  • Foreshadowing
  • The theme of this story is to have confidence and to be happy with who you are. I think you can only be truly happy with who you are once you have reached a state of complete confidence.
  • Imagery
  • There are similes all over this story. I found that one of the most important similes that helped create the mood for this story was the first line of the story.
  • One of the most important places where foreshadowing is used in this piece of text is at the very end​ when Millicent decides that she will start working on her own form of initiation.
  • "...And she knew that her own initiation had just begun..." ~ Sylvia Plath
  • When Plath is describing the man on the bus, she uses imagery to give the reader a better picture of what the man looks like.
  • "...He was small and jolly, with a ruddy, wrinkled face that spread into a beaming smile as Millicent approached..." ~ Sylvia Plath
