Before chapter 2, Jack was afraid to kill the pig. But, after the littleluns said that there was a beastie, he initiated the plan to hunt and kill the beast. This quote portrays how the beastie somehow started the savage instinct in Jack because even though he knows that the beast does not exist, he is still determined to kill it. Additionally, they went more wild when some boys have claimed they saw the beast. “This head is for the beast.
In this passage from the Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, the reader witnesses the actions that Jack’s longing for hunting. Golding explains to readers how a group of young boys, who are stranded on an island and struggling for survival, will cause human nature to expose their poisons. This passage occurs at the point where Jack and his choir boys left to go hunt a pig, resulting in the fire to burn out. Piggy and a couple of other boys start accusing Jack, which triggered Jack to put his rage on Piggy. William, the main voice and the narrator in this novel, explains how human nature can bring out the dark side and poison in everyone.
Ralph and Jack’s opinions are divided on this point, and “the careful plan of this assembly [breaks] down.”(P112) The conference breaks up in discord. Before this meeting, a group of boys which is led by Jack goes to “kill a pig”(P86) and this makes “the fire out”(P87) indirectly. During the process of hunting, the boys do their first ceremonial dance; and the dance build up the boys’ courage. Therefore, the children would do the dance and chant their slogans which is “Kill the beast! Cut his throat!
Cut his throat! Kill the pig! Bash him in!” (Golding 104). In a normal situation in society what the boys were chanting would be deemed inappropriate. But, since the boys are falling away from regular civilization actions such as the one in the quote are starting to be classified as morally acceptable in their eyes.
This differences is about society coyote helps society by getting fire once they got fire it spreaded around the world so it wouldn't be such a dark cold place. Master Cat didn't help society he was selfish because he was the only one that got what he wanted which was to be wealthy and high power he. Its also different because Master Cat threatened and killed an ogre to get what he wanted and coyote had to cheat he flip teeth and took stick to win and that’s different because one harmful and one harmless. In the two stories the women are treated different in “Coyote Steals Fire” the women are under power then the men they are less important and in “Master Cat” they are trophies and prizes you have to have what it takes to have a women they are more powered. The two stories are different bc “Coyote Steals Fire” is a Folktale which is told by people and “Master Cat” is a Fairy tale which is written on paper.
And the conch doesn’t count at this end of the island-- (pg.150).” While the boys were playing a game, which goes like one of the boys’ acts as the pig and the others, with their spears, chase after him, Simon was crawling out the forest to tell them the truth about the beast, but the boys thought Simon was the beast, and killed him. Unlike Ralph who was terrified of what he did that night, Jack didn 't care what happened to Simon nor felt guilt for his actions. Soon, Jack moves to Castle Rock with his tribe, and the boys’ steal Piggy’s glasses to make a fire for their feast. He even allowed Roger to push the boulder and knock Piggy off the cliff, also it crushed the conch into a thousands of white pieces, taking away order forever. By the end of the novel, Jack’s identity is hidden behind the paint, he’s nothing but a savage, and brainwashed all the boys’ to
He wants to kill the pigs so he can get meat to give to the boys, so they do not have to keep eating fruit from trees. In his desire to kill, the sound of the pigs’ hoofs are “seductive” because they enchant him into killing. The sounds of the hoofs are “maddening” because he is so close to achieving something that will give him pleasure - in this case the killing of pigs for food - that he is going crazy waiting to acheive his goal. At this point, Jack is becoming more overwhelmed with the desire to kill, that he does not have to give a second thought over whether he should kill the pigs or not. Jack, however, fails to kill the pigs, but that does not stop him from trying.
In the beginning of the story, the mask adds to Jack's identity by making him feel anonymous. Before he puts the mask on he is scared to kill the pig, but the addition of the mask makes him feel anonymous and he builds up the courage to kill the pig. Golding writes, “He capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing of his own, behind which Jack hid liberated from shame and self consciousness . (Golding 64)” When Jack has
Due to Jack’s increasing obsession with hunting pigs, his clear dislike for anyone who disagrees with his thoughts and the fact that he is slowly gaining more support from the other boys, leads me to believe the novel will end with Jack murdering Piggy, symbolizing complete detachment from morality since Piggy symbolizes civil thought. If I were to rewrite this conclusion I would have Jack realize the importance of order, make a compromise with Ralph, and peacefully have the group rescued from the island. In my opinion, Ralph is the one of most compelling characters in this novel. Although Ralph symbolizes order and civilization during certain points of the book he struggles to overcome savage desires. Despite being angry with Jack for letting the fire go out, when Jack and his hunters tell the rest of the group about their hunt Ralph sits quietly and is filled with envy.
The other boys, tempted away from civility by the more natural urges the island and Jack present, abandon Ralph, thus abandoning the ways they’d been taught to act in a British society. ‘He capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness.’ (Golding 64) Jack teaches them how to hunt the pigs and displays aggressive behaviors they then partake in, exposing a dark side inside of not only the boys, but all of us. This shows a kind of nurture, but a sinister one developed in nature. ‘In his famous Bobo doll experiment, (Albert) Bandura demonstrated that children could learn aggressive behaviors simply by observing another person acting aggressively.’ (Cherry 13) Jack remains at the forefront of his band of savages as their leader after being previously rejected from Ralph’s society. ‘Even the choir applauded; and the freckles on Jack’s face disappeared under a blush of mortification.’(Golding 23) Jack is the obvious choice for leader in the way he conducts himself and how he had the arrogance of one who leads,
