"I painted my face—I stole up. Now you eat—all of you—" (Lord of the Flies 4.191) Jack did kill the pig and get the meat. This implies that he is a good leader, but forcing the other boys to eat it should not give him power. It makes him more like a dictator. The other boys are under his influence and go wild after this.
This encourages the rest of the boys to become hunters since they too want to feel the sense of power that Jack appears to have. This quote shows that after a certain amount of time humans began to change and reveal their “true” selves. Jack begins to portray a darker character who enjoys destroying those around him. This change from being an uptight choir boy to a savage demonstrates that men are inherently evil since no one taught Jack to act this way. Instead he is the one who is encouraging those around to become more like him.
He does not want to help out on the island to benefit them, he would rather go hunting trying to kill pigs. Jack declared himself as chief and lead the hunters. When he came across a pig he wanted to kill it but he held back because he had no hunting skills. His ambition to kill a pig built up in him that he did not take orders from anyone anymore and moved on. 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 Jack killed a pig, he tortured it by cutting it open, and cutting its head off. Being the sick and twisted person he is, he decides that it will be a sacrifice for the “Beastie”. We now know that the Beastie does not exist, but this was more than a sacrifice. It was a symbol to show that the boys have completely lost their civilized part of them, and they are now being true ‘savages’, and becoming more and more evil by the minute. In the book Lord of the Files, there are many signs of symbolism in the book.
Written by William Golding, Golding brings Lord of the Flies where a band of young British boys are stuck at an island and soon see the dark side of them and transforms them into savages. As savergey takes over, the children’s thinking begin to change as their fate of being rescued begins to dwindle. Golding is able to display the power of rules and impulses towards savagery, and how civilization can be discarded. With the kids having their parents away becoming used to a civilization that doesn’t enforced rules makes their natural instincts comes alive. The reader can see that savagery and civilization are two strong forces that integrated into the Lord of the Flies.
He is solidly relying on the wild and killing pigs to survive. He is no longer worried about being rescued; he is worried about being chief. He leads his new “tribe” in killing pigs and attacking the others. One night, he led some of his “tribe” to go attack the Ralph´s group in order to get Piggy’s glasses for their fire. Ralph, at this point, is furious.
There were no words, and no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws” (153). Piggy is also killed, out of hatred from Jack’s group. Jack has now killed two people. Both were part of Ralph’s group. Jack feels that Ralph should also be dead, and orders his tribe to kill him.
Golding’s Lord of the Flies serves as a perfect illustration of Hobbes’s philosophy on the brutish, selfish nature of man and, therefore, the need for a strong government. The boys on the island much prefer hunting with Ralph’s rival, Jack, than following his instructions to keep a rescue fire burning on the mountain. Ralph constantly tries to convince them that building shelters and
The corporal uses the rebels as a way to control the children 's emotions and use them for himself. He makes Ishmael’s desire start to transition towards creating destruction. Later, Ishmael and his friend’s enter into the battlefield. During this time, Ishmael kills his first victim and his desire completely turns into killing sprees. “I raised my gun and pulled the trigger, and I killed a man.” “Every time I stopped shooting to change magazines and saw my two young lifeless friends, I angrily pointed my gun into the swamp and killed more people”(Beah, 118).
Jack uses fear and manipulation to gain power over the rest of the group. "Ralph 's right of course. There isn 't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we 'd hunt it and kill it. We 're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody.
