"The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar." (Plath 1
"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." (Plath 9)
"How she had proved something to herself by going through everything, even Rat Court, and then deciding not to join the sorority after all." (Plath 9)
This was the first quote Millicent said in the story. She was in Betsy Johnson's Cellar and was describing it throughly. I made the room dark and added the window and cob webs as described in the in the text just after the quote.
"I'm coming," she said, getting up and moving out of the soft darkness into the glare of light, thinking: This is it, all right. The worst part, the hardest part," (Plath 9)
This was mentioned at the end of the story and symbolized her classmates/peers outside of the sorority. Millicent thought of this symbol while sitting in Betsy's basement. I added the log she said she was sitting on (Plath 9).
Within Millicent another melody soared, strong and exuberant, a triumphant answer to the music of the darting heather birds that sang so clear and lilting over the far lands. And she knew that her own private initiation had just begun. (Plath 9)
This quote was again said on plath 9 by Millicent and it really helped give an example of the theme that was described of the story. I added the log she stated she was sitting in the text as well as the basement she was in.
I found this quote on plath 9 and added the door I imagined she'd have to walk through to go up stairs from the dark basement. I thought this quote foreshadowed what Millicent was going to have to do next.
I have another quote that displayed foreshadowing found on plath 9-10 that hinted Millicent was destined for something more in the near future. She mentioned this quote before going up stairs so I made the character facing away from us as if she was walking. I also added a door that she was heading toward so she could go upstairs.
On plath 3 I found this quote that resembled a metaphor. I added a dance floor and window that a character (Millicent) looked as if she was staring through and she was sitting on a bench as stated in the text on plath 3.
"It was as If she had been sitting for years in a pavilion outside a dance floor, looking in through the windows at the golden interior, with the lights clear and the air like honey, wistfully watching the couples waltzing to the never-ending music, laughing in pairs and groups together, no one alone." (Plath 3)
