Why did I try to make doodle different than who he was....
TWIST project by John Mitterer pd8
Guilt/Regret is the tone of the "scarlet ibis". I think that guilt/regret is the tone because doodles brother looks back onto what he had done to doodle, and feels a bit of shame now that he is a bit older
James Hearst's word choice tied with imaginary as his writing style. He used words like Dead, not born, stained, bleeding, rotting, brown, ironweeds, empty cradle, graveyard witch suggest a negitive outcome for someone (Doodle) at the end of the story
If he wants to be friends, he needs to not look weird. Maybe we can change that?
I just want to hang out with them, why wont they let me?
The coffin doodle's parent had built for him is a image that foreshadows his death. When Doodle learns to walk his cart is placed next to his coffin in the barn also suggesting his death.
James Hearst uses lots of symbolism and foreshadowing in the scarlet ibis. James Hearst uses symbolism with the Scarlet ibis and doodle both are a rarity in society and stand out. Also, the rarity of the ibis and Doodle is the fact that they are connected. The ibis's red color also mirrors doodle's fate when the ibis dies.
The theme is "Accept for who people are by not having too much pride and trying to change their personality for your benifits."
