As Bayard is readying to leave Professor Wilkins' house he realizes he is the head of the Sartoris family. He is unnerved by this reality because he has questioned himself, asking whether he was becoming like his father despite his feelings. Colonel Sartoris’ murder is now his test to “ find out if I am what I think I am or if I just hope; if I am going to do what I have taught myself is right or if I am just going to wish I were”(215). As Bayard shakes Professor Wilkins’ hand, he thinks to himself, “ thou shalt not kill” (216).

Could two brothers dislike each other so much that one would be responsible for the others death. In the short story “The Scarlet Ibis” the main character, Doodle, is killed during a terrible storm. Who is responsible for Doodle’s death? The narrator, Doodle’s older brother, is responsible for Doodle’s death for the following reasons: never accepted Doodle from the beginning, pushed Doodle too far, and acted out of selfishness. Doodle’s older brother disliked him from the day he was born.
In his short story “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurst uses Doodle’s brother in order to show how he is both cruel and kind towards his younger brother Doodle. The character of Doodle’s brother behaves with cruel notions toward Doodle. For example, when Doodle’s brother faces the prospect of possibly having an invalid brother forever, he “…began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow,” (Hurst 555). This demonstrates that the narrator would rather murder his brother than have one that is mentally challenged, which is not at all a humane thought, to say the least. Anyone who chooses to murder their blood relative instead of support them through tough times most definitely has wickedness within them, which supports the statement that Doodle’s brother behaves cruelly towards Doodle.

H “Expectations is the root of all heartache.” - William Shakespeare. The short story “Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst explores how the protagonist, Doodle copes with the expectations his family have set on him; precisely his elder brother. Throughout this short story, Hurst demonstrates the substantial effect expectation has on individual and society themselves. He shows how pressurizing a person for self-satisfaction harms the offender as well. Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse.

According to the book, “March Toward The Thunder,” it states,” But the thought that one of them might kill my…my brother makes me determined to stand against them. I would hate the South forever.” This quote shows the bondage between a character and there brother.
