In the dialogue it tells Simon that it symbolizes the evil that lies within every human being. It also says that it, metaphorically speaking, will have fun with Simon, meaning that the evil in the hunters will end up killing Simon. This pig head is called lord of the flies, because of its allurement of flies. Just like the flies are allured towards the pig head, the boys are allured towards the evil.

Human Nature: Good vs Evil In 1954 when William Golding published Lord of the Flies, in his novel it showed, human nature between Good vs Evil. Being easily influenced, feeling lost and wanting to fit in; and not wanting to feel vulnerable, which leads to seeking power, can make a person loses their identity, and it can open up the door for evil to take over. This is how William Golding will demonstrate this thesis throughout Lord of the Flies. Firstly, being easily influenced can make a person lose their identity, and it can open up the door for evil to take over because, if a person does not know who they are, other peoples influences can change them for the good or evil.
In ‘Lord of the Flies’, Mr. Golding says, “‘Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill… you knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you? Close, close close! I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are what they are?’”

The metaphors, on one level, are made to show the difference between what Carmen pretends to be and what she really is. When she is trying to seduce Marlow, she does everything “kittenishly”, making her feel like an adorable and innocent animal. When Marlow rejects her, her act splits open and she turns into a wild animal. She lets out a “faint hissing noise” and whenever she makes noise, all Marlow can think of is “rats behind a wainscoting in an old house” (Chandler, 157 and 154). The imagery that Chandler uses with her is that of a dark, wild and disgusting animal.
The definition of a Gadfly is a fly that bites livestock. When referring to Gadfly it can be defined as an annoying person that persuades others into acts by use of criticism.

When not kept in check, however, individuals with the tendency to act on said malevolence will slowly find the beast inside themselves surfacing. The dark part of every being can be instigated when provocative circumstances deem it so, and when encouraged by a group. We find comfort in numbers, and we tend to do things we wouldn’t normally find ourselves doing simply for the sake of the togetherness.
