They chase Ralph to the island end only to find the rescue that they so longed for. At the sight of an adult the boys are stopped in their tracks and break down in tears in shame. For at that moment they knew that the beast was in
In Lord of the Flies terrible things happened, starting with the fire that killed many littluns.“The boys looked at each other fearfully, unbelieving...Beneath them, on the unfriendly side of the mountain, the drum-roll continued”(Golding,46). In that moment the boys on the island were stained with sin, therefore washing away the innocence that they had left. As the birthmark boy dies, so does our innocence. Most of the time it is hard to realizes that is gone, and like the boys of the island, in that moment, they weren't entirely sure. The many deaths on the island represented a painful time, and memory, for the boys who were left.
When Meursault kills the Arab at the beach, the sun is present overpowering him leading him to confusion and disorientation, the line “At that very moment, the sweat that had gathered on my eyebrows suddenly rushed down into my eyes, blinding me with a warm, heavy veil of salt and tears” supports this idea. Before shooting the Arab, Meursault mentions that, “It was the same sun as the day I buried Mama” and this may imply that like at his mother’s funeral he didn’t have any compassion, his feelings are likewise towards the Arab. Even at the trial, the sun is present, along with the society thinking they have the right to judge
My brothers were struggling a little bit to go into the water. My middle-aged brother ran back to my mom crying, with the assumption that he had salt water in his eyes. The waves splashed and thundered across the empty sand floor. just a few minutes I was diving head first into the water. Tearing me from the safe beach to the vast empty void of the sea.
The sun is also the driving force, which makes Meursault murder the Arab man at the beach.“Scorching blade slash at my eyelash and stabbed at my stinging eyes...sky split open... the door of unhappiness”(59). When Meursault attended his mother’s funeral, he was annoyed by the heat, but he felt that the sun is oppressive. When Meursault has a gun and shoots at the body when the sun is hitting his eyes, it shows the impair vision he has, and he is unable to acknowledge reality. From the sun Meursault is unable to concentrate, which gradually makes him miserable.He is unable to make ration and irrational decisions when using the gun and he is unable to think clearly. All of his action when the sun is on him reflects his ignorant to recognize himself and a driving force to commit crimes.
I sprinted across the rocky sand, serrated shells cutting my exposed feet, tiny rivers of blood trickling down my bare feet and off onto the stupid sand. The sun was beating down, sending powerful rays of light onto my burnt, evident back, the sweat glistening as it droped of me, my shorts clinging to my body from the sticky sweat, my heart beating rapidly, long hair housing my eyes and me huffing and puffing like I was the big bad wolf blowing down the worthless pigs house’s. I could see the end of the polluted beach, rubbish ran past from the strong gusts of painful wind. The choppy waves were crashing down, sending white foam everywhere. The vigorous current pulled the rubbish out to deep sea where the pirate ships use to sail and there
It later becomes ‘okay’ for the other boys to do it because they are following by example. Closer to the end of the novel, the conch shell loses all of its power and order. The conch shell got smashed and Piggy got murdered, from there the islands sense of civilization, mannerism and order ceased to exist. 'Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of a true, wise friend called Piggy. “the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist.”(208) That was the end of peace and order in the island.
That what happened when the war hit. Looking around at this time, homes were shattered and smashed inside out, the concrete had blood stains on it and bullet shots where the bullets missed. The sky was grey and filled with smoke, you would walk around coughing everywhere you go. We were living in a black and white world because everything with color was destroyed and the sun doesn’t even hit this place anymore. It was like a movie scene after a war, but instead, it was happening right in front of our eyes and was flipping and destroying everything that we have worked for around here.
The glowing pumpkin glowed brighter as the knife got closer. The reason is that that pumpkin came from a pumpkin patch,but this pumpkin patch wasn't regular.

Upon hearing Allie's death, who battled with leukemia at a young age, Holden is unable to cope with the reality and decides to take out his frustrations through destructive tendencies. J.D. Salinger writes, “I was only thirteen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage. I don’t blame them. I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the godam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it (Salinger 44).” He was inexperienced with handling grief and death at a young age; rather than rationalizing the situation, he decides to take out his grief and frustrations though destroying property and hurting himself in the process.
It doesn’t stop. Then the first tree falls. You realize this is the time to run. You run towards the helicopter, taking out the obsidian rock, just in case. You hear Phil yelling behind you but his words are slurred and you know he is more and more under the influence of the crab.
“Within moments the people had become like a flame, or a tempestuous wind. In moments the barbed wire was buried under the sand, and the human waves plunged forth.” (Munif) These people had been displaced and disempowered with no safety net to catch them as they fell; this of course created resentment towards the ones exploiting the land as well as the leadership that allowed them to set up shop in the first place. This resentment tended to manifest in violent outbursts, such as the uprising of Harran’s working class and the Emir fleeing the
Despite her tattling on me, which was, by far, possibly the biggest betrayal I had seen in my eight years of living. So, I left my group and walked over to the sandbox. I could see my old friend crying and felt nothing but sympathy. The bully turned to me; arms crossed and told me to leave, again. I ignored her and helped my old friend up off the ground.
The situation was too horrible for Ishmael, he “screamed at the top of [his] lungs and began to cry as loudly as [he] could, punching and kicking with all [his] might into the weak walls that continued to burn. [He] had lost [his] sense of touch. [His] hands and feet punched and kicked the burning walls, [he] couldn’t feel a thing” (Beah 95). In this moment, Ishmael lost almost any hope he had left of getting out of the war. Ishmael was mentally too far gone to have hope, and all he has left is revenge for his family.
