They need the glasses to have a fire source for heat and a signal for help. In Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes, the quote, “Life in nature is nasty, brutish, and short” is an exact short summary of almost the whole book. Since the boys lost their innocence, they were starting to become Leviathan and started to kill things and not care or understand the government and why we needed it. The Leviathan government doesn’t have the fire because they went their own way and want their own power and no norms except to just have fun and not care, but now realize that they need it, so they take the power from the norm/try to get help/sustainable government.

Forrester is talking about the imagery Bradbury uses to express his feelings towards the subject of technology advancement.

He got upset with them because keeping a fire burning was more important than hunting for pigs. This was more important to their survival because the smoke from the fire was a signal so they could be rescued. Ralph was mad how they hunters weren’t able to keep the fire going when the ship was near since that was an opportunity to get off the island. Ralph believed that if the fire was still burning, the ship would see them and rescue them. “Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.” (98) Even though the twins didn’t scream, they were both still scared since they were alone at night.
