In the fourth chapter I can see how the characters have changed overall and how some of their qualities from the first chapter have stayed the same. To start off, Ralph has become extremely mature for his age with his leadership qualities, but his poor treatment towards Piggy has still existed from the first chapter. Furthermore, he also seems to be more serious about getting rescued and having rules within the group of boys. Since he became the chief, he has become more frustrated with the boys because they do not care about rules, and they think that no matter what, they will eventually be rescued. Despite his rudeness towards Piggy he has still changed into a better leader.
Ralph had everyone doing tasks, to keep the production going. Jack kept refusing to do anything Ralph would say, he’d always disagree, even when he knew he was wrong. Jack only wanted to hunt and kill things, even if it was his own peers, that’s what he loved to do, and he wouldn’t stop. Jack and the savages became very untrustworthy, and unpredictable, they were dangerous. Ralph tried getting the hunters to come back into his clan, so Jack would be on his own, but they always did what Jack said, even if they knew it was wrong.
According to Freud’s Theory of Personality, Jack’s actions are motivated by his id as shown by his lack of caring about the rules and the other boys on the island. Jack constantly disobeys Ralph’s rules so he can go hunting to find food for himself. Instead of building shelter for all of the boys on the island, Jack insists on hunting to please himself and only himself. Jack also forms his own tribe in order to get away from all of Ralph’s rules and responsibilities. When Ralph tries to tell Jack to follow the rules, Jack responds by saying “Who cares about the rules?”.
In the book Lord Of the Flies two British boys, ralph and jack are stuck on an island this situation exemplifies their differences In the aspect of who they are, what they want and why they want it. On that island, their own society is created their president is elected. Between the two leaders the novel 's antagonist and protagonist one elected by the people while the other elected by force both with different intentions to use their power and leadership but common in being the leader of a small island that is now theirs. jack is arrogant and dangerous he cares for no one but himself, he continuously forgets his responsibilities to hunt, he uses his power arbitrarily and wants what he doesn 't need. Ralph, on the other hand, is responsible he constantly maintains the idea that they all need to be rescued and he respects his power nd everyone
Civilization means to be a part of a culture, to have a leader who takes power, and to be apart of orderly society. In the novel The Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Simon is the most civilized boy on the island because he has the most positive outlook out of every boy on the island, he is insightful of what and where the beast is, and, he is the first to realize most of the problems that occur on the island. Simon has the most positive outlook out of every boy on the island. Simon insisted multiple times that the boys would get rescued, even when Ralph strongly doubted the possibility. Simon also tried to keep the peace between all of the boys by assuring them that everything is ok, and that there is nothing to be afraid of.
The adolescents in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies and Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone are entangled in chaotic situations that placed them in vulnerable positions to commit dangerous acts of violence. In Golding’s novel, a cluster of boys are trapped on an unknown island caused by a fatal plane crash that leads to the lack of adult supervision. The need to survive on the deserted island causes two leaders to emerge and clash: Jack and Ralph. Although Jack seemingly submitted to Ralph’s authority in the beginning after Ralph was announced chief over the boys, his manifesting desire to conquer thrives as the plot continues. The thick tension involving Jack and Ralph is ignited when the party of youngsters split up into two individual tribes:
The untouched, pure island was corrupted by man when the boys came, and this made it the young boys leave their marks, thus killing its beauty. In other words, since the boys came the island’s perfectness was left in utter chaos because of their actions. For example in the article “Game Metaphor” in Golding 's Lord of the Flies, it states that “ The boys in Lord of the Flies consider most events as games... whereas in reality these are all key elements in the disintegration of the island.” This proves that the boys going hunting or even leaving the fire unattended, means the destruction of the island. In addition on page 201 in Lord of the Flies, it says “A flame, seemingly detached, swung like an acrobat and licked up the palm heads on the platform. The sky was black.” This further proves that the boys destroyed the beauty of the island.
In the novel, the boys use it to govern the meetings by whoever is holding the conch shell has the right to speak. The conch shell is not just a symbol, but also democratic power, which later in the novel it loses its power. Eventually, the boulder that crushed Piggy also crushes the conch shell signifying the loss of civilized instinct in almost all of the boys on the island.
Fear is a natural response that triggers specific behavior patterns in people. It is an emotion that signals how to react in adverse or unexpected situations when one’s well being or survival is threatened. Fear is what William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, encompasses. When dozens of British school boys, whose ages range from six to twelve, are marooned on an uninhabited island, their true instincts are revealed. The boys’ dissipating morals result in a fight for power, the collapse of their civilization, and a phobia that causes two devastating madison.
The Use of Characterization to Develop Theme in Golding’s Lord of the Flies Without society, the organized and civil nature of humans falls apart and leads most people to a more primal and savage way of acting. After this primal nature of humans takes over, humans become driven by the id as opposed to the superego. This lack of empathy allows people to commit horrific acts. An example of this is shown in William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, when he theorizes what would happen when a group of people are abruptly removed from the strict order of society. Golding’s novel takes place on a deserted island after a plane crash strands a group of young english boys without any adult supervision.
Ralph being voted as chief and Jack being head of the hunting team causes clashes of power and authority, resulting in the falling of the group. William Golding is showing that there are those who are given or earn power and there are those who take it. There are many boys that are now stranded on an island after a plane crash. Ralph, is a carefree preteen and also attractive. Ralph could care less about figuring out where he is, all he knows is that there are no adults around.
In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them. In the book one of the characters, Ralph, says "Things are breaking up.
Franz let him know that "When you forgive, you love and when you love, you forgive." (Into the Wild) Since he spent his life being upset with his parents, he never forgave them, so he couldn 't love them. Going to Alaska was his way of running away from his problems and trying to put them in the back of his mind. Doing so would only hinder any other close relationship he encounters because of his lack of trust. The majority of his perspectives on life and society originated from the hatred that he felt towards his parents; he opposed all that they wanted for him.
“Me ‘n Simon built the last one over there. That’s why it’s tottery.” (80) Ralph has a meeting to talk about how the group is not doing well. He talks about how he and Simon had to build the shelter for the boys because they had left their jobs to play. The boys weren’t committed with their jobs and that was what made Ralph upset. Ralph was building the shelter for the littluns because they were afraid of the beast.
