Storyboard Text

  • Flashback
  • Millicent thought, her eyes getting used to the strange dimness. (Plath 1)
  • Character
  • " Get up, gopher," Bev ordered. (Plath 5)
  • Simile
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar," Millicent thought. (Plath 1)
  • Millicent begins and ends the story sitting on a woodpile. Because she is still thinking at the woodpile shows that she is always looking back on her experiences during the story. This also lets her reflect on her past decisions that she has made with the sorority.
  • Mood
  • "The silence was soft with cobwebs, and from the small, rectangular window set high in the stone wall there sifted a faint bluish light that must be coming from the full October moon." (Plath 1)
  • Bev is one character from the story that is not the nicest. She is an example of a flat character because she doesn't really change throughout the story. She also calls new girls coming to the sorority a "gopher" which is degrading and can hurt someone's confidence.
  • Symbol
  • At the beginning of the story Millicent was sitting in a dark, damp basement. She used "like " (simile) to describe what the setting was like. After reading the simile you get the feeling that the basement is grim and muggy by how the author described it.
  • Theme
  • "How she had proved something to herself by going through everything, even Rat Court, and then deciding not to join the sorority after all." (Plath9)
  • By using these words, the author can easily set up the setting and mood for the story for the reader. By reading this, the reader can imagine that the basement is somewhat eerie and very quiet. Also by saying that the room was very quiet you can imagine that Millicent is thinking very hard about her experience.
  • The thing being symbolized in this book is the heather bird. The heather bird represents Millicent's own individual, self-sufficient self. Millicent is proud to be a heather bird instead of being in a flock of Sparrows that all follow each other and depend on each other.
  • "Swooping carefree over the moors, they would go singing and crying out across the great spaces of air, dipping and darting, strong and proud in their freedom..." (Plath 9)
  • The theme of the story is set to be yourself and don't follow other people. Millicent realized this when she decided to not join the sorority and go on her own path. Overall the theme of the story is to go your own way and to not be a follower, be a leader.
