  • Imagery
  • The symbol in the Scarlet ibis is. When Doodle found the scarlet ibis it was trying to stay alive fluttering to keep going, but he fluttered one lass time and became limp and lifeless. Doodle then sheltered the scarlet ibis by burying it. This then connects with at the end of the story when Doodle and narrator where running from the rain trying to find home. But when doodle gets left behind trying to keep up over uses his body and falls by red nightshade bush. When the narrator final comes back he finds that Doodle was limb and so fragile. Just as Doodle saw the scarlet Ibis die. Doodle and the scarlet Ibis was both fighting for there lives and that is what the scarlet Ibis and Doodle have in common!
  • Theme
  • The symbol for Doodle once he died with blood drizzling out of his mouth also reflects back to the bleeding tree . Doodle died under a red bush because his brother pushed him to hard. The narrator had to much pride in himself which then lead to the death of doodle. This reflects back to when the Scarlet Ibis died he also pushed himself to hard. The symbol is the bleeding tree because it is the symbol of death and the red color its self including the blood that came out of Doodles mouth and the scarlet Ibis.
  • Dynamic charator
  • The imagery in this picture is peaceful. The swamp is a place where they could got there and relax. Doodle even says in the book , " its so pretty" and starts to cry in joy. They would got there just to get away. The swamp is a symbol of peace and peacefulness
  • personal reaction
  • The theme of the scarlet Ibis. Is that you should drop your pride if you really love someone. In the book and scarlet Ibis the narrator even say I think back to why I wanted Doodle to walk I wanted for myself cause I was ashamed to have a brother who can not walk. He had so much pride in himself he didn't care if he over worked his brother. All he cared about was having a brother who could walk. He kept doing that intill that last day when that big storm cme and if he loved Doodle he would have waited for him but he kept running and left his brother to over work his body and die. So this is why I think that the theme is, You should drop your pride and have love for the ones who are close to you.
  • Doodle is a dynamic character because first he could not do anything then he changed and could walk then run.
  • I really liked this book it really taught me some life skills that I can learn and use in real life. I really like the part with the scarlet Ibis bird I really felt as if I can relate to this in some odd way. Except Im not going to die like the bird does . This book made me really emtional too.
