  • symbol
  • "pale gray-brown birds in a flock, one like the other, all exactly alike." "heather birds. 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

  • Simile

  • " Get up, gopher," Bev ordered. There was something about her tone that annoyed Millicent. It was almost malicious. (Plath 5)
  • The parrot in this picture represents a heather bird and the black birds represent sparrows. In the story Millicent talks to a man on a bus and he tells her about heather birds. Millicent just wanted to get accepted in the beginning but in the end she found her own sense of acceptance and was like a heather bird, free and her own person.
  • 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& 10)
  • The simile "the air was like honey" is taking about how the air would be sweet if she was in the pavilion if she got accepted in the group.
  • In the story Bev is a very flat character. Throughout the whole story she was rude and didn't care about the feelings of Millicent.
  • The theme of the story is to be yourself. Millicent just wanted to be accepted at the beginning but at the end she realized how important is was to just be yourself and don't change for anyone.
