Storyboard Text

  • Imagery
  • Metaphor
  • Theme
  • "It was just that she had learned that there were other ways of getting into the great hall, blazing with lights, of people, and of life." (Plath 9)
  • "In his brown suit with the forest-green tie he looked something like a gnome or a cheerful leprechaun."(Plath 8) Millicent is describing the last person on the bus, who she has to ask what he eats for breakfast. The author used this imagery to give the reader a physical description that they can imagine.
  • Simile
  • "'Get up, gopher,' Bev ordered."(Plath 5) This is the first day that Millicent has a big sister. A big sister is someone from the club that tells them what to do and when. The author uses this metaphor, to portray the mean side of Bev that is most present around Millicent.
  • Symbol
  • "Something to do with Tracy and something to do with the heather birds." (Plath 2)
  • This scene shows her sitting on the woodpile making her decision at the end of the story. This relates to the theme because her decision is what makes the theme. She decides that she can have friends and be cool without being in that group. The theme is, you don't have to be in a special group to have friends and be cool, be cool in your way.
  • Character
  • This simile is in the very beginning of the story. The author is trying to give the reader an understanding of the darkness and loneliness that Millicent is going through. Millicent is going through this because she is at the final part of initiation when she chooses not to join.
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar." (Plath 1)
  • A symbol is the heather birds and the crows. The heather birds are Millicent because they are different and have special values, whereas the crows are everyone else who just want to be apart of the group. The quote is when Millicent is making her decision on the woodpile and uses the heather birds to realize who she is.
  • "There was something about her tone that annoyed Millicent. It was almost malicious." (Plath 5)
  • Bev is very important to the story because she helps Millicent make her decision. She helps Millicent realize that being apart of the group isn't always fun and isn't worth it. Bev shows her this by being mean to her when she forces her to do stuff.
