  • Imagery
  • In the story it says he is sitting there in the cool green parlor and then he remembers doodle and how he was the just about the craziest little brother a boy ever had.
  • Theme
  • The scarlet ibis is out of place in their yard. He feels like his brother that isn't all there is out of place in their home. his brother was out of place to because he was different, small, fragile, mentally and physically impaired.
  • Dynamic Character
  • In the first paragraph the author describes "clove of seasons, summer was dead and autumn had not yet been born." this has imagery because a clove is a dried flower bud which has a strong aroma. Clove is also the past tense of cleave which means a split in something."The flower garden was strained with rotting brown magnolia petals and ironweeds grew rank amid the purple phlox." This sentence contains imagery that appeals to both sight and smell. The words "rotting" and "rank" appeal to the sense of smell. The phrases "purple phlox" and "magnolia petals" appeal to the sense of sight, as they name the color and type of flowers.
  • Personal Reaction
  • I think consequence could play into the story's theme as well. A theme statement could be "by the time we realize what who we've done wrong, we can no longer fix the mistake". When Doodle dies, Brother feels that he is responsible.
  • The story begins with Brother returning to the farm and reminiscing about his childhood and especially his brother, Doodle. As he tells the story about the birth, life, and death of Doodle, he admits to how his own pride to have a normal brother causes him to push Doodle beyond his physical capabilities. Brother admits that “Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” In the story, he also realizes (as an adult) “. . . that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” Brother recognizes how his pride and unrealistic expectations led to Doodle wanting to please and be accepted by Brother.
  • The narrator is embarrassed of his brother that he nick named doodle The narrator is embarrassed of his brother he nicknamed Doodle, wishing he had never been born; "It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow" He never kills his brother insteas he just tries to help him walk and to swim and to run. He struggles with the love he has for his brother and is hatred at his brother being so different. in the end it was the narrators hatred and selfish behavior that led to doodles death. Cruelty should never be a part of love.
