The Cold Birds The imagery of the short story “The Birds,” by Daphne du Maurier, illustrates that these birds are trying to get inside of Nat’s house for the purpose of terrorizing them. “Various incidents were recounted, the suspected reason of cold and hunger started again, and warnings to the householders repeated” (61).

This quote shows that the birds are constantly giving Nat and his family warnings and the birds
Geraldine Brooks’ book People of the Book: A Novel introduces the story of the Sarajevo haggadah, a Jewish book, throughout the chapters. She also shares all the stories it went through and the sacrifices people from different communities and backgrounds had to go through to keep the haggadah safe, to make it to today. In Brooks’ novel she discusses about different community languages that the characters use; however, the community I chose to talk about and that interested me was the Albanian community. The language is mostly used in the chapter “An Insect’s Wing: Sarajevo, 1940” where Lola, a young Jewish girl, experiences running and hiding away from the Nazis, coming back to Sarajevo, and being saved by a Muslim family that uses values of the Albanian community, beliefs, and language around Lola to protect her.

In the story “The Birds” by Daphne du Maurier the birds, Nat, the airplanes, among other things in this story represent so many things happening during this time. During this time there was a lot of tension between the United States and the Soviet Union as a result of World War II. Several events occurred much like in the story where there seems to be uncertainty of what was about to come. Ultimately, I believe Daphne du Maurier's "The Birds" can best be analyzed from the perspective of The Cold War because of the meaning that the birds tie back to the war in that time.
