  • Quote
  • Millicent thought of the heather birds swooping carefree... strong and proud of their freedom, it was then that Millicent had made her decision. (Plath 9)
  • The colorful, mythological bird represents individuality while the regular, very populated sparrow represents surrendering your individuality to fit in.
  • Imagery
  • " Within Millicent another melody had soared, a triumphant answer to the heather bird's call." (Plath 9)
  • The way that Bev acts and speaks never changes during the story from this point. This shows that she is a static character.
  • "Something about Bev's tone angered me, it was almost malicious" (Plath 5)
  • At the end of the story, Millicent is contemplating if being in the sorority is what she really wants. So she thinks back on how unique the heather bird is and its freedom compared to the gray group of sparrows. This helped her make her final decision on her individuality.
  • The heather bird is imagery of triumph and freedom for Millicent. As she hears its call, telling herself she can be unique. This is similar to the mockingjay providing hope to people in The Hunger Games.
