Flannery O’Connor’s The King of the Birds is a narrative explaining the narrator’s obsession with different kinds of fowl over time. The reader follows the narrator from her first experience with a chicken, which caught the attention of reporters due to its ability to walk both backward and forward, to her collection of peahens and peacocks. At the mere age of five, the narrator’s chicken was featured in the news and from that moment she began to build her family of fowl. The expansive collection began with chickens, but soon the narrator found a breed of bird that was even more intriguing; peacocks.
The reader quickly learns that Nat is very resourceful as he knows to go get food from the farm while it is daylight and the birds will not attack. Maurier uses characterization to not only describe Nat, but many other characters throughout the story. As you can see, foreshadowing, imagery, and characterization are just a few of the literary elements that give “The Birds” an intense story line. They help to create an exhilarating tale that keeps the reader engaged and wondering what will happen next. Maurier’s use of these components helped to make the short story into a hit American horror film in 1963.
One thing that is different than the movie is mood. In the story you can tell what the characters are thinking.

This shows the emotion Nat has going to the barn after the bird attack.

The first difference that I have immediately noticed is that the story starts out in the middle at Frank’s funeral, but the movie starts out in a field. Another difference in the movie is the absence of Frank's sister, Cathleen and older brother, Steve who we read about in the story. " Next day Steve drove with his wife back to Baltimore where he managed the branch office of a bank, and Cathleen, the middle child, drove with her husband back to Syracuse." (p. 80) Moreover, in both versions the characters have different jobs, for example Matt owns a store in the story.
Another difference is that in the movie they go into town, but in the book it 's never mentioned. Something else that was different was that in the book the mood was happy most of the time, while in the movie the mood was sad. A difference between the book and the movie is that in the book momma was going to burn Byron, but in the movie she does not burn him. A big difference is that in the
We never had in own mind how beautiful the nature would be with those birds, we were trying to kill. I love birds, especially in the morning when they sing. After I finish to read the story, I ask God for forgiveness for all what I have done to the birds, I feel like my heart

In contrast, this moment happens in the apartment in the play version. “(She goes out, and WALTER sits looking at the money on the table.
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.
