You don’t need to feel guilty for reading this “White Heron” summary. One day as she walks the cow back home, she hears a whistle.
The whistle belongs to a hunter, carrying a gun, searching for rare birds to kill and stuff.
Once she has reached the top of the tree, victory and accomplishment is felt by the words used when her feat is described as "wholly triumphant".
The halls were already filled with students one February morning, just before seven o'clock, though a bright sunrise still glimmered faintly among the trunks of the cars in the student lot.
One of the most prominent works in American literature is the story “A White Heron” by Sarah Orne Jewett.
The main heroin, Sylvia, came to the countryside to help her grandmother and left there forever.A little girl was driving in her Chevy, a plodding, dilatory, provoking vehicle in its behavior, but a valued companion for all that.They were going away from whatever light there was, and striking deep into the lot, but their tires were familiar with the path, and it was no matter whether their eyes could see it or not.Sylvia also takes a liking to the charming hunter and seeks to gain favor in his sight.Sylvia awakes early one morning and climbs the tallest tree in the forest in order to locate the heron’s nest. Upon her return, however, she does not reveal the bird’s location.From the first sight, the story might seem to be the ordinary text about a little girl, living in the wood with her grandmother, but reading precisely one can find a great amount of details proving a unique style of author’s writing. They represent people of middle class, though they live poor but have their own dignity.Jewett in the colloquial tone raises certain problems in the text and shows her attitude to their solving through actions and words of the main characters. At the first meeting with the hunter the house was “clean and comfortable…Later in life, Sylvia contemplates what she gave up that day.The narrator pleads with nature to reward Sylvia’s sacrifice by revealing its secret.The diction used throughout the passage evokes sympathy for the young girl who is attempting to scale the large pine tree.Her blood is "tingling" and "eager" with the anticipation of the challenging adventure that she is faced with, she is seen taking a "daring" step across the treetops and there is a sense of sympathy with the description of her "thin little fingers" trying to climb.
