Furthermore, later in the book Jack decides to leave the group and make his own tribe. It is characterized by the tribe that is fun and the one that hunts, “I’m going off by myself. He can catch his own pigs. Anyone who wants to hunt when I do can come too”(127). The pig’s head on a spear is a part of characterization as well.
He goes to share his hunting story to Ralph and a boy named Piggy. On page 69, the narrator shares, “I cut the pig’s throat,’ said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it.” This quotation shows us that civilization is lost when the urge to kill takes over because it shows the stage where Jack is proudly killing animals, but still feeling a little bit uncomfortable with it. In this example, Jack proudly shares that he has killed, but still twitches after saying he did. Jack is still hanging onto the little bit of civilization that is left on their island. Lastly, in the end of the book, Piggy, Ralph, and Sam and Eric, a set of twins, are the only ones who have not joined a new tribe created by Jack.
One reason humans are inherently savage is that they hurt innocent animals. An example from Lord of the Flies that demonstrates the savagery humans are capable of is the scene where Jack gets his spear to catch a pig. As the boys sharpen a stick to form a spear, Jack uses the spear to trail a pig, but the pig runs away from him. Jack then becomes irritated and walks back to the beach where he finds the boys building huts for the younger ones to live in. "Rescue?
Next, feeling of rage can be developed because of the anger emotion. As portrayed in the movie ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding, a group of boys scout were stranded on an island. However, after few days stranded there, sources of food became limited. They started to feel worry because it seems that they are going to live on the island forever as there were no sign that they would be saved. In that desperate situation, a boy named Jack suggested all the other boys to go hunt animals for food for survival purpose.
He created his own tribe just so he could hunt for “meat.” Given the thrill of "irresponsible authority" he's experienced on the island, Jack's return to civilization is conflicted. When the naval officer asks who is in charge, Jack starts to step forward to challenge Ralph's claim of leadership but is stopped perhaps by the recognition that now the old rules will be enforced. What Golding wrote in this book is a great example of how kids would act on an island by themselves with no adults. It would teach the readers good and bad examples on what to do on an island with no
In the Lord of the Flies, the boys face major problems on the island. They try to act civilized and have order, but with Jack and his group of hunters rebelling, this order slowly goes down the drain. To makes things worse, Jack begins to act cruel and evil to the boys and even the animals. This lead to facepainting which symbolizes savagery, the “Beastie” which eventually means the boy’s fear and cruelty, and the pigs head on the stick, which was the turning point of complete evil, and a sacrifice to the beastie, which means a whole lot more that it seems. The first symbol that was shown in the Lord of the Files is the face painting of the boys and the hunters.
An example of how is this proven is because he regularly has fainting spells. Before one of these episodes he hallucinates the Lord of the Flies, a pig head suspended on a spear poking out of the ground placed by Jack, speaking to him. The pig head tells Simon about the evil that is inside the boys, and that they are capable of evil things. “Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill!’ said the head. For a moment or two the forest and all the other dimly appreciated places echoed with the parody of laughter.
When he takes the pig to the farmhouse a sheepdog named Fly, and her pups talk about how humans only eat the "stupid" animals like cows, pigs, and chickens. When Fly see 's the pig, she feels bad for him and regrets the things she said about him. Fly asks the pigs, " What 's your name? ", the pig answers that he does not have a name,
