Storyboard Text

  • Flashback
  • "She could sec now that what she was sitting on was a woodpile" (Plath, 1)
  • "The basement room was dark and warm, like the inside of a sealed jar" (Plath 1)
  • Simile
  • Imagery
  • "then she had felt the cold, sLimy egg-white flattening and spreading on her head and sliding down her neck." (plath 2)
  • At the beginning and end of the story, a flashback takes place with Millicent sitting on a woodpile. She has a flashback to her initiation. This is important because the flashback shows that she's being reflective and thinking about her final decision.
  • Symbolism
  • This is a simile because it compares the basement to the inside of a sealed jar, using the word "like". Similes are phrases that compare one object to another. This makes the phrase a simile, because Plath uses the word 'like' to compare the room and a sealed jar.
  • Character- Bev
  • "be very meek and obedient when you're with Bev and do just what she tells you." (plath, 5)
  • Millicent remembered when they put an egg on her head. This is imagery because the story goes into great detail of how the egg felt against Millicent's head. Imagery means that an image is being portrayed in the reader's mind, which is exactly what is happening.
  • Metaphor
  • The heather birds are a form of symbolism, because they represent Millicent. Millicent is free and different from the other "colorless" sparrows. The heather birds are different than the sparrows (the other girls of the sorority)
  • "Millicent thought of the heather birds. Swooping carefree over the moors, they would go singing" (plath, 9)
  • This quote characterizes Bev because she's tough. Bev has high expectations of the sorority girls. The quote means that Millicent had to be polite and quiet when in Bev's presence, because she expects alot out of Millicent.
  • This is an example of a metaphor, because the interior of the room wasn't actually made of gold. The metaphor suggested that the room was a yellow color. The yellow perhaps resembled gold.
  • "looking in through the windows at the golden interior," (plath, 3)
