Storyboard Text

  • FLASHBACK
  • "She could see now that what she was sitting on was a woodpile next to the furnace." (Path 1)
  • SIMILE
  • IMAGERY
  • The beginning and end of the story is foreshadowing while Millicent is on the wood pile. During that time Millicent reflects on her initiation.
  • THEME
  • "And she know her own private initiation had just begun." (Plath 10)
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar."(Plath 1) That simile creates sort of a creepy and eerie mood right away in the beginning of the story.
  • SYMBOL
  • "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, they would go singing and crying out across the great spaces of air, dipping and darting, strong." (Plath 9)
  • "You've drawn Beverly Mitchell for a big sister. I wanted to warn you that she's the toughest, but you get through all right it'll be all the more credit for you." (Plath 5)
  • ¨There had been a silence, a slight crunching sound, and then she had felt the cold, slimy egg-white flattening and sliding down her neck.¨ (Plath 2) That imagery helps the reader picture what egg looks and feels like.
  • CHARACTER BEV
  • The theme of the story is to be yourself and not try to be like others. Millicent finally realized that towards the end of the story and decided she didn't have to join a sorority to fit in or be cool and she could just be herself. The new initiation that the author says is the initiation of Millicent becoming and trying to be herself and not anyone else.
  • The heather birds and sparrow are the symbols in the story because heather birds are the exact same and travel together while sparrows are not eh exact same and they don't travel in groups. The heather birds represent the sorority in the story and the sparrow represents the people who be themselves and don't try to be someone else.
  • Bev is a flat character, because the author never really tells you much about her besides the fact that she is a very tough big sister. She isn't round because she stays the same throughout the entire story.
