Storyboard Text

  • Flashback
  • "The other victory would be much harder, but she knew it was what she wanted" (Plath 9)
  • Metaphor
  • "Rebellion flooded through her" (Plath 5)
  • Symbol
  • "Outside the Sparrows were still chirping" ... "she imagined each one exactly alike" ... "And then for some reason, Millicent thought of the Heather birds" ... "proud in their freedom and sometimes loneliness" (Plath 9)
  • Millicent at this point is looking back on everything she did during initiation. Millicent is realizing that she she is trying to join Sorority to feel accepted. Looking back on everything though, Millicent then realizes she wants her friend Tracy, who will probably never get in Sorority. At this point Millicent is deciding she may not want to Join Sorority after all.
  • Quote
  • "Heather birds live on the mythological moors" (Plath 8)
  • When Plath says this in the story it shows that Millicent is already not liking being treated this way. Millicent wants to tell Bev not to treat or so disrespectfully, but she knows she can't or she won't be in Sorority. At this point Millicent hadn't decided she didn't want to be in Sorority, so she didn't dare risk anything that could allow her to not make it in.
  • character
  • "Get up gopher" (Plath 5)
  • When Millicent thinks differently of the different kinds of birds, it can be used as symbolism. The Sparrows represent the Sorority because they are more plain and simple. The Heather birds represent those not in Sorority because the Heather birds are more free and sophisticated.
  • theme
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar" (Plath 1)
  • This quote indirectly states that Heather birds are not your usual kind of bird. It makes people think Heather birds are unique. Later in the story this affects Millicent because she realizes she can be like everyone else and be a Sparrow, or she can be Heather bird.
  • Bev is supposed to be the toughest big sister in the Sorority. Right away when Bev says "get up gopher", this immediately sets a mean tone to Bev's character. This is good because it helps show Bev's character is not nice.
  • This statement says that the basement is warm and dark like the inside of a jar. First of all this helps us picture a setting, we know it's in the basement, and that it is warm and dark, these are directly stated. Now there is a simile, sealed off like a jar, this sort of tells us the place is isolated from everywhere else.
