Ulysses with Minerva against the suitors was a huge battle between the deities and the people, since Minerva or Athena was the people’s mentor and they had hope that the goddess would be with them instead of Odysseus.

Gatsby lived like a king in his castle, protected by his wealth, and oblivious to the consequences of his actions.

Chaos is especially present on the island when the boys are hunting down a pig and doing insane dances with chants. The boys all chant and dance, which makes them more violent than ever before on the island. Fear also comes into play when all the boys believe that there is a big beast that comes in the night.
For the need of fire, the boys would go to war with each other. Even though the fire is a useful tool, it leads to a war between the two groups that ends with Piggy’s death and almost Ralph’s.
