All the boys, savages and civilized, are responsible for the death of Simon. The savages feel as if Simon deserves what came to him since they are only trying to protect themselves from the 'Beast'; who they thought Simon was. They have no remorse nor regret, they choose to not accept any responsibility. A normal child would feel horrified and guilt, the savages did not. This portrays how much they have changed since the beginning of the novel, it portrays their psychological and emotional downfall.
This shows that the environment itself is not responsible for the boys behavior, but only acts as a revelation of who they really are under the masks that society gives them to hide behind. Jack is the best example of falling into savagery, which can be capitalized and displayed with his “bloodthirsty laugh” (Golding ). His bloodlust causes incredible sin, from the self gratification of hunting and eventually the murder of Simon and Piggy. Society is needed to keep people from their natural
McCandless and Westerberg 's relationship began when, as an act of kindness, Westerberg decided to employ the young man. This soon evolved to be something more than a employer-employee relationship. Initially, Westerberg wanted to help McCandless and "take the kid under his wing," as it is mentioned on page 14. As time passed by, McCandless proved to be a hard and ethical worker which made Westerberg respect and even admire him. Westerberg is a very observant man and he appreciated all the good qualities he was able to see in Alex.
After reading the novel lord of the flies by William Golding, I learned many things about society and one of them is who would be a powerful leader, and in the book many people think jack would be a good leader. He is always providing meat and he is powerful. Yet to the readers, many may say that ralph is the best leader because he is proper and it is evident he is a civilized young man. Ralph clearly has common sense because he thought of the law and order, the fire, and the conch. Yet to me after reading the novel and taking from the personal experiences in my own life and real society it is obvious to me, I would have picked to follow Simon.
He like many others has goals for his life. What distinguishes Willy from the others is not only his dedication to pursue those goals, but the way he graciously knows he will achieve them without a slight doubt in his mind. He goes through life without a worry in the world because even if things seem difficult he never once doubts himself. He is confident, clever, and has an appealing sense of humor which are perfect qualities for the leadership he takes in everything he does. Willy is a very special guy to many and accordingly most people tend to speak about all his good aspects when it comes to describing him.
The protagonist, in the story Lord of the Flies written by William Golding, is a young English boy named Ralph. The author introduces him as only a child, adventurous, bold, and lighthearted. He carries with him young innocence and expectations, believing that adults will always come to save the day. His simplistic thinking shows that he is a sheltered child, who is far from attaining full maturity. His character represents the order and good morals in the story, as he attempts to maintain rules and civilization despite his unfortunate situation.
Nemo the Great wasn’t just a ordinary King who was just an basic hero. King Nemo was a very generous, honest, respectful, and loyal king who only thought positive about everything in his life. King Nemo also followed all the codes of Chivalry which were; Always stay loyal to your loved ones, Always stay positive regardless of the negative impact, and Always have faith. He was a very shy king as times but he always did good deeds when it came down to a lot of things. With that being said, King Nemo always helped with getting everyone things they needed the most.
Simon, the Disciple “He was a small, skinny boy, his chin pointed, and his eyes so bright they had deceived Ralph into thinking him delightfully gay and wicked” (Golding, 55). Simon, a character in the “Lord of the Flies” is a “skinny vivid little boy” yet the boy is strong and stands up for he what believes is right. (FIX SENT.) That is just one of the many qualities this boy has. Simon is a very wise and philosophical type of boy.
The boys not only disagree on what the beast is but also how to deal with it. Initially, the older boys deny the existence of a beast at all, but “among the little ones [is] the doubt that [requires] more than rational assurance” (Golding 36). Ralph admits that this fearful disagreement is preventing them from residing in peace and order, saying that “‘things are breaking up...we began well…[and] then people started getting frightened’” (Golding 82). Simon, who represents genuine goodness of man, suggests that “‘maybe [the beast is] only us’” (Golding 89). His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed.
