It was then that she made her decision." (Plath, page 9)
The climax of this story occurs towards the end. It's when Millicent make the decision of not joining the sorority. This is important because it changes her view of acceptance. "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, page 9)
The sparrows symbolize the sorority, who look the same.The heather birds symbolize Millicent; her originality & her wish to be unique. This is important because it shows what the characters stand for/how they're different. "Outside, 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. And then, for some reason, Millicent thought of the heather birds. Swooping carefree over the moors." (Plath, page 9)
