Theme “The Scarlet Ibis”

In the story “The Scarlet Ibis,” the theme is, pride can be a good or a bad thing. In the story the narrator says, “even though failure was inevitable, we kept pushing to succeed.” This is where their pride keeps them pushing forward even though they know they might fail. Then the big brother says “every time doodle would try to take a break I would walk a little faster.” This is where pride begins to hurt Doodle, because the narrator (his older brother) is pushing him to the limit. In the story’s final sentences the narrator says, “even though Doodle cried for me to stop, I kept going.” A this point the narrator’s pride to get Doodle to run and let him catch up, eventually leads to Doodle’s demise. All of this evidence proves the theme that pride can be both a good and bad thing.


In the story “The Scarlet Ibis” the theme is, pride can be a good thing and a bad thing. In the beginning the narrator states, “it seemed so hopeless from the beginning that it’s a miracle I didn’t give up.” This shows how pride can be a good thing because the older brother didn’t give up on Doodle, thanks to him not giving up Doodle was able to walk. The narrator also states, “I should’ve admitted defeat but my pride wouldn’t let me.” This also shows pride is a good thing because once again, he won’t give up on Doodle; making Doodle stronger. Lastly, the narrator states “I ran as fast as I could, leaving him behind with a wall of rains dividing us.” This, on the other hand shows how pride is a bad thing. Doodle’s older brother has too much pride to realize Doodle isn’t strong enough to keep up, leaving him behind to die. As you can see the them of; pride can bee a good thing and a bad thing develops over the story.
