Doodle died because his brother didn't want to be weighed down anymore. Another piece is at the beginning of the story and Brother says "... That the Ibis lit in the Bleeding tree". This also shows that the Ibis and Doodle are connected when Doodle buries the bird in the yard. The
Rainsford was very justified to kill General Zaroff a mad man with a huge eager to hunt but it is getting boring to him, so he wants an animal that can reason. But there is one problem only one animal that can reason a human being. While Rainsford and Zaroff are eating dinner and discussing this new “animal” Rainsford is very much against him trying to hunt them, “ ‘But they are men,’ said Rainsford hotly. ‘Precisely,’ said the general, ‘that is why I use them. It gives me pleasure.
“OW!” He exclaims, snatching his hand away from her face- moments after it moves away, she feels a small trickle of blood slide down her neck. She opens her mouth again to scream but stops dead in her tracks. A very cold and sharp object pokes lightly into the skin under her ear- and she realises that blood she felt wasn’t Rhett’s, it was her’s. “ I don’t want to hurt you Peony-
Before Rainsford entered the “Dangerous Game,” General Zaroff, the owner of the island, tried to persuade Rainsford to believe that killing humans is not murder. The General was explaining to Rainsford that he had invented a new animal to hunt, a animal that can reason, make hunting last longer and more interesting, humans. Rainsford couldn’t help but to speak; “‘Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder’” (Connell 27).
"Doodle and the narrator get off at a landing the narrator walks faster until he is running and, Doodle falls. "Brother don't leave me! Don't leave me!"(425). After the storm clears the narrator decides to go back to find Doodle. "I went back and found him huddled beneath a bush"(426).
Touched by the bird’s struggle, Doodle decides to bury it. Soon after, Doodle starts to feel feverish and sick. When another storm hits nobody is prepared, especially Doodle. Doodle demonstrates many unique characteristics such as compassion, anxiety, and
Hounds are made to kill anyone that breaks the law. The government doesn 't care if violence is used, its part of life. “A four inch hollow steel needle plugged down from the proboscis of the Hound to inject massive jolts of morphine and procaine.” (Bradbury 22).
Although this is considered a criminal offence, the people of Cedar Ridge didn’t care. To this day nobody knows who committed this crime and nobody wants to fess up about it although there are rewards involved. She argues that the Prairie dogs “Create diversity. Destroy them, and you destroy a varied world.” (Pg 87)
Aunt Nicey is prompted to declare that “‘dead birds [are] bad luck, [especially] red dead birds’“(562). It foreshadows the narrator’s remorse by integrating Doodle’s death with the superstition of misfortune and the color red. In the following events, Doodle dies from exhaustion under a red nightshade bush containing poisonous berries, symbolizing death and forcing the narrator to regret the spite in him that led to his brother’s demise. The scarlet color of the bird contrasts with the shade of blood that is shown through the end of Doodle’s life. Hurst describes Doodle with “his head thrown far back, making his vermillion neck appear unusually long and slim” (564), which in comparison resembles the bird’s long neck and creates a similarity between Doodle and the ibis.
The quote said “he was looking up into the tree”. “It’s a great big red bird” he called”. Later after Doodle said that, the bird fell through the tree and died. While everyone looked at the Scarlet Ibis, the reader can see a similarity in the bird and Doodle. They were both weak and Doodle was born a shade of red, as the Ibis is.
(Hurst 488). Since Doodle was able to walk, the narrator and Doodle decided to surprise their family. The Scarlet Ibis states “There wasn’t a sound as Doodle walked slowly across the room and sat down at his place at the table. Then Mama began to cry and ran over to him, hugging him and kissing him” (Hurst 488).
“Finally I went back and found him huddled beneath a red nightshade bush beside the road. (Hurst 12)” Doodle had been injured in some way. The author does not inform the reader on what happened. It is, however, safe to say that Doodle may have passed away by the shock that his beloved brother had left Doodle stranded.
In “The Scarlet Ibis,” by James Hurst we are told the story of Doodle from his brother’s perspective. We’re told just how crazy Doodle could be, how delicate he was and how he cared for a certain bird. Moreover, in “The Scarlet Ibis,” Hurst uses imagery to show the connection between Doodle and the scarlet ibis. The said bird is originally from the tropics but was found badly wounded in Doodle’s own backyard. It ended up falling out of a tree and dying.
His little legs, bent sharply at the knees, had never before seemed so fragile, so thin.” The author describes Doodle very similarly. He explains in detail, the limpness of Doodle’s limbs, just as the scarlet ibis. Also, Hurst uses the word, limp, in both descriptions to describe the bird and Doodle, and he also describes, in detail, the bloodiness of each of their bodies. To continue, Doodle seems very sorrowful, much more sorrowful than his family, after the scarlet ibis shows up in their yard.
‘The rain came, roaring through the pines. And then, like a bursting Roman candle, a gum tree ahead of us was shattered by a bolt of lightning. When the deafening thunder had died, I heard Doodle cry out, "Brother, Brother, don 't leave me! Don 't leave me!’ (425)
