And I’m the Beast… Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill!... You knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you? Close, close, close!
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.
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?
I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are the way they are?” The Lord of the Flies says this to Simon in Chapter 8, during Simon’s vision in the forest. These words confirm Simon’s belief in Chapter 5 that perhaps the beast is only the boys themselves. This idea of the evil on the island being within the boys is central to the novel’s exploration of innate human savagery.
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.
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.
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. ‘You knew, didn 't you?
Mr. Hogget carried the pig and guessed the correct weight. 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,
In the novel, the sow's head, the actual Lord of the Flies, is one of the most deep symbols that exerts power over the boys. The boys experience some major events with the sow's head. Simon attempts to share his insight with the others although does not actually have the power to do so. Simon is the insightful one and gives his perspective on things although the boys may not be listening. It is crucial to remember that they are only 12 years old and younger.
Some people are noble in nature Even in the dire circumstances, some people still have honer and can control theyself follow the rules. In the Lord of the Flies writed by William Golding, state a group of children escaping from the plane and get on a island. They are far from the society , and they don’t have food and adult with them. With the story develop, some children became savage, evil and disorderly.
The Lord of Flies by William Golding has many symbols of evil, one of which is the sow’s head.

The sow’s head, represents savagery, innate evil in human beings, and a Satan figure. The image of it is a major symbol to move the reader along in the battle between civilization and savagery.
Crawling through the undergrowth on an unknown island with nowhere to go and nowhere to hide. As the sun swims across the sky turning day into night, strange noises come to life. This is the everyday setting in the novel Lord of The Flies by William Golding. In the novel, a group of English boys crash onto a mysterious island. Unfortunately, the plane crash left no trace of adults, therefore, leaving the young boys stranded on the island alone with no adult supervision (Golding pp.
A man named William Beckford once said “It is a great evil to look upon mankind with too clear vision. You seem to be living among wild beasts, and you become a wild beast yourself.” William Golding clearly emphasizes a theme similar to this in his novel Lord of the Flies. Golding’s novel is about a group of British boys who crash land on an deserted island.
