Storyboard Text

  • Simile
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar." Plath 1
  • Theme
  • "Within Millicent another melody soared, strong and exuberant, a triumphant answer to the music of the darting heather birds that sang so clear and lilting over the far lands. And she knew that her own private initiation had just begun." Plath 9
  • Symbol
  • "Millicent thought of the heather birds. Swooping carefree over the moors." Plath 9
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar." This is how Millicent describes the basement that she has to stay in. This shows that the basement is small and cramped and she feels trapped.
  • Flashback
  • "She could see now that what she was sitting on was a woodpile next to the furnace." Plath 1
  • This is the point where Millicent realizes that she doesn't need to join the sorority to be accepted. She realizes that you should be accepted for who you are and not what club you are in. This shows that theme is to be accepted for who you are and don't change for anyone else.
  • Character
  • "Get up gopher." Plath 5
  • "Millicent thought of the heather birds. Swooping carefree over the moors." A major symbol in the Initiation is the Heather Birds. The Heather Birds symbolize how Millicent is not going to be like everyone else and she is not going to join the sorority. This way she is going to stay herself.
  • Simile
  • "Looking in through the windows at the golden interior, with the lights clear and the air like honey, wistfully watching the couples waltzing." Plath 3
  • At the start of the story Millicent is sitting on a wood pile thinking about the initiation. Then the story goes into a flashback and shows the entire initiation process. And at the end it shows her still on the wood pile. This shows that she was reflecting about the initiation the entire time. She then makes her decision to not join the sorority.
  • During the story Bev, who is Millicents big sister, is a very cruel character. Throughout the story she bosses Millicent around all the time and tells her what to do. She also calls her gopher which isn't very nice. But whenever Bev is around other people she makes it seem like she is nice. But then she just goes back to being mean to Millicent.
  • This simile shows what Millicent thinks of the sorority. She thinks that everything there is perfect and the air is like honey. She thinks that once she gets into the sorority everything will be good and she will be happy.
