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.

Golding plays with the concept of human nature in the plot of Lord of the Flies by having a group of boys getting marooned on a deserted island with no adults, forcing them to strategize and work together in order to survive. Chapter 9 especially highlights the major themes that Golding is trying to convey in his book. While Simon uncovers the true identity of the beast, the other boys have a feast, where they eat pig and enact tribal dances. Simon finally arrives only to be mistaken as the Beast, and is murdered in cold sight.

When morals no longer apply, the savage heart appears. When the boys are in their enraged frenzy they chant ‘Kill the beast, slice his throat, spill his blood’.
