Beast except for Simon who realizes that they fear the Beast because it exists in each of them. The growing of savagery becomes very clear when Jack and the hunters get a sick obsession with the hunting of the Beast, the boys and Jack even come up with a chant that is repeatedly said throughout the novel, “Kill the Beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood” (p.168). Golding is trying to show that the boys behaviour is what creates the Beast, the more savagely the boys act the more real the Beast becomes.
