In the first chapter of the novel the boys are faced with how they will live on the island. They decide that they will need a chief to help have some order among the boys. This is the first sign to the boys and the reader, that their innocent days as
The novel “Lord of the Flies” written by William Golding shows us different faces of a human being. In the novel all the boys are stuck on the island in different situations they show their different sides. It is not always important to be a good or bad person every time. Golding shows how a human can take someone’s life for their benefit, he shows us the savagery taken to the next level by the boys on the island. It was mostly hard for boys to stay in a civilized manner without any adult supervision, although when they come from such civilized families.
When the boys crash on the island they come together to find that they need some leadership to be able to stay alive. At first Ralph shows that he really is capable of being a good leader. Ralph says, “We’ve got to have some rules and obey them. After all we aren’t savages” (32). Ralph understands from the start that they need some rules so that they kids don’t turn into savages.
Imagine a world with no rules or laws? How would humanity behave if we could do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, because there were no consequences for our actions? In the novel Lord of the Flies, the author, William Golding illustrates if we lived our lives in this way, humanity could easily revert back to savage ways. The book tells the story of a group of British boys who are stranded on an uninhabited island, they attempt to form a stable government. It all falls to pieces when a group of boys start caring more about fun than surviving.
The most prominent theme I noticed about this story "The Boat" by Macleod was about sacrifice. The speaker is a young boy, youngest of his siblings and only son and tells a tale of his family dynamic, the importance of the sea and fishing. As the speaker ages, his thoughts develop a deeper and honest meaning as he becomes more involved in his surroundings and preconceived destiny. The narrator evolves by becoming more attuned to the reality and environment surrounding him. How the sea is more than a mysterious beautiful thing but holds a significant danger- eventually taking his fathers life.
In Benedetto Palang’s short metafictional story “The High Tide,” the narrator tells the story of a boy who wakes up and finds himself on some distant island. The lad, feeling lost, decides to explore his surroundings and get his bearings. This curious move ends up in him discovering 3 other islands, each is vastly different from one another. After arriving on the 1st isle, he discovers of the term “rebellion” which added a little smudge to the clean paper he kept. The learning these new concepts, along with more smudges on his paper, happen every time he finds out about the world around him.
Living on the island alone turns out to not be as marvelous as the boys had at first deliberated. Notwithstanding, they begin to fear a beast in the forest, and eventually, they begin to wonder if there is legitimately a beast, or if it is only them. When forced to survive on their own, the young boys in “The Lord of the Flies” find themselves asking whether they are humans, animals, or savages. Consequently, they behave in a barbarian way; all human attributes seem to have disappeared. While I was growing up, my cousins and I often found ourselves battling “to the death” for ludicrous reasons.
"Billy is spastic in time, has no control over where he is going next..." pg 23. By being unstuck in time, and flying from random moments of his life to others, he does not have any freedom with his life, he is scared of going from place to place. “ He is in constant stage fright, he says, because he never knows what part of his life he is going to have to act in next.” (Vonnegut, 23) Even what Mary says, “You were just babies in the war-- Like the ones upstairs!” (Vonnegut, 14) Where they were sent to battle without a choice and were simply put there. This led him to give up his life and understand that he does not have a choice. On Tralfamadore, Billy is also forced to be somewhere, in a zoo, where he is forced to live in a dome.
If people give up all the time individuals will never get far in life or become successful, but if people try their best until people get better or at least try, people are less likely to fail.
