Both the story and the movie had excellent examples of foreshadow. One in The Birds movie was when the bird attacked Melanie’s head. That can be compared to when the birds were flying around Jim’s head in the story when he was on the tractor. A couple more from the movie were the different birds flying/attacking together and the American radio. They can be compared to the story very much because the story had the different birds together, too and even though the setting was different there was still a radio; the BBC radio.
In the beginning parts when the narrator of the story is dealing with the conflict we are introduced to some peculiar birds that the protagonist despises for good reasons. They are a product of some amateur genetic mutation or some idiot not doubt. These birds fly around calling out several undesirable curse words and screeching them horribly toward people. This seems as an absolutely nightmare for anyone with a proper sense of decency. I might be off the path here, but these birds could be a symbol of how all animals and pets feel towards humans for altering their genetics and mutating them.
He felt the thud of bodies, heard the fluttering of wings, but they were not yet defeated, for again and again they returned to the assault, jabbing his hands, his head, the little stabbing beaks sharp as pointed forks. (53) This quotes makes the reader in vison someone being attacked by birds. They may even feel the poking of the birds’ beaks or the thuds of the bodies around them. He could feel the blood on his hands, his wrists, his neck. Each stab of a swooping beak tore his flesh.
Henry describes “a shell screaming like a storm banshee went over the huddled heads of the reserves”(Crane 20) The artillery shells could blow up groups of men,which made them a deciding factor in some battles. Hearing friendly artillery in the war probably helped some soldiers feel less afraid, because they knew their comrades would have their back. The new blades could could cut deeper than the old blades. The “mounted cavalrymen and fixed bayonets played a more prominent role” because the bayonets are sharper and more well made than previous blades. (American Era 2) The horses combined with the bayonets made a deadly combo.
How do you see the world? Your view can clash with others and what they see sometimes if you do not agree with the other person they will try to force their onto yours.

George is described as, “small and quick, dark of face, with restless eyes and sharp, strong features. Every part of him was defined: small, strong hands, slender arms,and a thin and bony nose.” This entire quote is an example of imagery but the words that stick out are what show Steinbeck style.You could say that Steinbeck was killing two birds with one stone by saying,”restless eyes” because it adds a description to his eyes and is evidence of how long they have traveled. George has,” strong features”, this is an example of figurative language. The readers understand what it means, but know that the features themselves cannot be strong because they do not have the physical ability. Using adjectives like strong, slender, thin, and bony set a tone for George.
We would not put them in jails. Birds of a feather flock together. Chickens will attack the weakest of the group, and we just say that “thats life” “its nature”. The only difference between what Jacks actions on the island and what animals do on a daily basis, is that Jack is human. When looking at Jack Merridew from Lord of the Flies, by William Golding the reverse effect of this societal transition from being the perfectly mannered British school boy back to his inner “savage” instincts to survive is prevelent.
I believe this could be for multiple reasons, such as to relieve stress, cool down/warm up, or to eat/check for food. I also noticed some differences between them, like how the tamarins, being smaller than the howler monkey, seemed much more alert and were always looking up and around them. This is likely because, unlike larger howler monkeys, tamarin’s small size makes them susceptible to attacks from predators, especially large birds. Thus, being more alert helps them locate potential predators before they

The contrast made between the “early bird” and the “second mouse” is meant to portray different types of people and situations. The bird represents a person who took the first blind leap and made the first mistakes. The mouse is a symbol of a person who learned from the failures of the “first mouse” and thus was able to succeed. Wright is suggesting that different wisdom is relevant and useful to different people in different situations. If one finds oneself in the scenario of the “early bird,” then sometimes he/she must take risks and make mistakes to be the first in a field.
