Storyboard Text

  • Flashback
  • Do I really want to join this sorority?
  • Metaphor
  • Simile
  • "Seated now on the woodpile in Betsy Johnson's cellar, Millicent knew that she had come triumphant through the trial of fire, the searing period of the ego which could end in two kinds of victory for her." Her flashback showed her that she doesn't really want to join the sorority.
  • Imagery
  • "It was as if she had been sitting for years in a pavilion outside a dance floor." This metaphor makes it seem like she had been sitting in class for a very long time when it was really only a small amount of time.
  • Theme
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar." This simile makes the basement seem like a small, cramped, enclosed space that is hard to escape from.
  • Symbolism
  • "He was small and jolly, with a ruddy, wrinkled face that spread into a beaming smile as Millicent approached. In his brown suit with the forest-green tic he looked something like a gnome or a cheerful leprechaun." (Plath 8) This imagery shows that this man is a nice gentleman and has a good sense of humor, just by looking at him.
  • The theme is being accepted by people that love you and care about you, not people who don't. "How she had proved somethingto herself by going through everything, even Rat Court, and then deciding not to join the sorority after all. And how she could still be friends with everybody. Sisters with everybody. Tracy, too." (Plath 9)
  • Millicent
  • Tracy
  • The symbolism in this story is the sparrows and the heather birds. The sparrows all act the same and try to fit in while the heather birds are their own being and have fun whenever possible and are being themselves. "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." (Plath 9)
