In third novel The Lord of the Flies by William Golding the characters are all innocent when they first get to the island. They are some boys that are happy they don't have any adults and there are others who are not. Ralph is a character who shows innocence in the beginning of the novel when he tells everyone Piggy's nickname even though Piggy told him not to "he's not fatty. He's real name is Piggy!" (Golding). That quote shows how immature Ralph and the children are when they laugh at Piggy. Another example of the children's innocence is when Jack could not kill the piglet that was trapped in the vines "I was choosing a place. I was just waiting for a moment to decide where to stab him" (Golding). Jack not being able to kill the piglet
The island is their home now, where they will work to survive, where they will make a new home and start climbing Maslow’s pyramid all over again. The island is their life, meeting new people and making new rules, they rebuild their lives the moment they set foot on new ground. In the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding, two characters that meet varying levels of their needs from Maslow’s pyramid are Ralph and Piggy, although each person meets each need in a different way.
In William Golding’s book, Lord of the Flies, Piggy shows a great change from the beginning of the novel to the end, as he becomes much more confident leader of the boys. Piggy first demonstrates this new aura of confidence with his newly found ability to voice his opinions with matters that are important to him. Towards the end of chapter 2, Piggy takes the conch from Ralph to speak, as he feels like he needs to express his opinions. In this scene, Piggy remains quiet at the beginning of the meeting of the boys, showing that he is reserved, yet by the end he has warmed up to the group and voiced his opinions towards them.

The boys efforts to imitate and to try and recreate the adult world but fall short and fail due to their developmental teamwork and cognitively. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding This sets them up as they are delayed by their emotional and mental setbacks. This results in them creating an unstable society that is failing to maintain and keeps itself above water as a comparison between the two things and ideas. Their society that they had set up had failed due to their lack of teamwork and collapsed onto itself. There is an analogy that fits this, an upside down pyramid, a symbol of unbalanced team work. It shows how work, team work, is not distributed evenly. More weight is put upon others such as Ralph the leader, and less pressure is
I chose a mirror to represent Ralph. When the boys hold an election for chief, Ralph is elected on the basis that he’s pretty. He confidently says “we want to be rescued, so we shall be rescued.” Ralph has charisma so this statement is just left unchallenged by the boys. He has no better idea about when they’ll be rescued than the rest of them! This logic is paperthin, and so is a mirror. It has no depth about what it shows. It shows everything superficially. Also, Ralph doesn’t have many original ideas. When he and Piggy find the conch, Piggy is the one who shows him how to use it as a trumpet. He also says so himself in Chapter 5, saying he can’t think, not like Piggy. As we know, Piggy represents ideas and knowledge, but he often doesn’t get listened

In the novel Lord of the Flies (LOTF) by: William Golding, Piggy had the qualities of a good leader; however, not many of the boys were aware of this. They looked down on him due to his weight, which blinded them from being able to see these qualities which he possessed. For this reason, Piggy was treated poorly- being ignored, teased, and bullied throughout LOTF. If they didn’t judge him for his appearance and were more accepting, they would have seen the good leadership skills he had. His great skill of perception allowed him to see the faults of the group and know how to improvise their circumstances. He knew the basic means of survival and essentials to be able to keep the group moving forward. The only problem was, no one was willing to

Throughout the novel Piggy was known for his intelligence and civilized manner who gave wise decisions through the voice of Ralph. “He’s like Piggy. He says things like Piggy. He isn’t a proper chief” (Golding 126). Jack is noticing how Ralph is talking like Piggy, and how Piggy is feeding Ralph on things to say.

Piggy, who is a character in Lord of the Flies constantly represents superego, always turning the other cheek and doing the right thing. Piggy is a perfect example of superego in Lord of the Flies written by William Golding.

During WWII, a group of British boys are being evacuated via plane when they crash and are stranded on an island without adults. As time progresses, the innate evilness of human nature begins to overcome the savage society of young boys while Piggy, an individual representation of brains without brawn, becomes an outlier as he tries to resist this gradual descent of civilness and ends up shouldering the blame for the wrongdoings of the savage tribe.
