If an unknown subject is introduced by が in one sentence, can it still be the subject in a subsequent sentence?
As an example:
At first glance, it seems more natural to me to read the 3rd sentence thinking the beetle (which is identified by が in the 2nd sentence) is the one scratching the Nighthawk's throat and making a commotion as it is being eaten.
But if が subjects can't persist between sentences (I think they can't), then よだか must be the subject of the 3rd sentence by default (since よだか is the topic). And that would mean that the Nighthawk is scratching his own throat and making a commotion as he swallows the beetle.
So I guess it's a straightforward question,
Can a subject introduced by が still be the subject in the following sentence?
