Moreover, Aunt Nicey says that red dead birds are very bad luck, foreshadowing Doodle's death again. Finally, the death of the scarlet ibis, which is so rare and wonderful, like Doodle, is the most important foreshadowing of the small boy's death. foreshadowing is definitely very important in this story, but two more elements also contribute to the distinction of its style. Symbolism is another important element in the style of "The Scarlet Ibis." for example, in Doodle's "lies," the ten foot tail of the small peacock refers to the author's description of Doodle's full name, "William Armstrong," as "a big tail on a small kite" like the long fancy tail on the small bird.

When Huck recognized the two men, he felt bad for them. This was a huge
Claudia does not want to believe that she is not beautiful the way she is while Pecola wants to become beautiful by becoming white. Claudia is mentally stronger than Pecola; however, even though Claudia is able to see the positive sides of life she is still harmed by society’s beauty standards.
