Golding made the fire represent multiple things like the civilisation and the boys relationship. In the beginning, of the book when the fire represents the boys working together like they would at home and help out. Also, its shows that their relationship together is strong because they are all agreeing about making this fire. So when Ralph declared “we can help them find us… so we must make smoke at the top of the mountain. We must make a fire”.
They will do anything and everything in their power to stay alive, regardless of who they might harm in the process. That is true human nature exhibited here in the text, the selfishness that consumes humans in the event that they are faced with a life-threatening situation. There is also representation of fire throughout Lord of the Flies, which reveals much about human nature. The fire is the object that they put all their hope for being rescued into. The fire that the boys created pushed away the darkness and their fears about the beast, bringing light to the darkest of times, quite literally.
Montag is already described as a bit of a pyromaniac, a person with an obsessive desire to set fire to things. To be clear Montag is a fireman, but not the kind that puts out fires, the kind that starts fires to burn books. (STEWE-2) Montag can also be described as happy in section 1 since he claims that he“grinned the fierce grin of all men singed and driven back by flame. Later, going to sleep, he would feel the fiery smile still gripped by his face muscles, in the dark. It never went away, that.
Throughout the story, the duo are literally carrying fire, or at least producing it. Fire sustains them; it allows for them to cook their food, keep warm, and to play cards or for the father to read to his son at night. Fire is the foundation of civilization but in The Road, it is also the primary implement of the destruction of civilization. Maybe the significance of fire is carrying the seeds of civilization.

By the end, Bradbury’s message will be clear. Fire is something that is used on a daily basis, but is it used to burn? In the beginning of Fahrenheit “fire burned the evening sky red and yellow and black” (Bradbury 3). In this scene fire had “destroyed” innocent books that had caused no harm to anyone. It also makes people arrogant such as Montag “he would feel the fiery smile still gripped
Another good skill could be that he can make good fires this would help him is that he can make good fires, because in the story he had to make fires multiple times. He would need to be brave to live on the frontier and he is because he was brave enough to escape his father than travel with a runaway slave.
Tone Dillard’s tone in the book develops from appreciative, to confused and dejected, and finally to reflective. This development of tone is appropriate for subject, audience, and argument/theme, and it also helps achieve the purpose. The tones in part I and II, especially in part II, resonate with the audiences. Indeed, it is not impossible to comprehend that many people have once wondered the meaning of the lives of moth, who unreservedly fly into the excruciating and deadly fire without any apparent purpose and contribution to the environment surrounding the fire, which makes it a question whether they are heroes who make the fire burn longer or pathetic creatures that lose their lives without being appreciated. Dillard, however, appreciates the moths’ sacrifice by underlining that their sacrifices sustain the fire longer and that such small creatures, at the bottom of the food chain, can have such colossal significance, which answers the readers’ question of the
Question 1) Figurative language Foreshadowing: “Look! Look at this fire! This terrible fire! Have mercy on me! Pg.25” I think that that the author would have put it in the story to very vividly show wast was combing for them in there stop A ahead at the camps and this is something that is good for the story because it's such a big part of the story that they had to show in some way that something big was going to happen.
The first event in the book, the house burning down, started off big and was captivating. It shows the eventfulness of Richard Wright’s life, it pulls us in to read more of it, and introduces the characters of his family.
