He isn’t a prefect and we don’t know anything about him. He just gives orders and expects people to obey for nothing.) 181-182. What I want to include in my third body paragraph: Jack’s psychology begins to change because he thinks bad and negative, and so he begins to suspect on others. So, he gets scared of any plots against him.
First of all, in Lord of the Flies, William Golding demonstrates selfishness from the theme of power. Power is one of the factors that can make people express their selfishness. In Lord of the Flies of William Golding, boys decide to elect their leader who will earn the power to control the group of boys. At the beginning of the story, Ralph is chosen to be the leader of the boys, while Jack is appointed to be the leader of the hunter. Jack and his hunters think that they are the special group of boys because they have the most significant duty.
Character name: Ralph Wheel (Power & Control or Respect) & trait: Using emotional abuse, using male privilege, role modeling, equality, personal growth Specific story event: Ralph is always the one ahead of everybody else. He is always thinking of a way to get off the island and survive. He makes all the decisions on what to do on the island, which angers Jack. Ralph was the one to find the conch shell, which is a symbol of power. The conch was used to summon all the boys together.
You been rude about his hunters’ (142). The discrepancy between Jack’s opinion of himself and his associates shows yet again when Ralph forces the reality upon Jack. Jack’s hunters were, indeed, no more than boys armed with sticks, and their yield rate (54) testified against their capabilities. Jack doesn’t realize that he really was the only one hunting, and the others’ presences were mostly trivial, which gave him a false sense of empowerment, continuously building his conflicting ideas between his “important” role as a hunter, and the reality that meat wasn’t an absolute necessity. What types of images are used in conjunctions with the character?
I am firmly opposed to the manipulation of one’s subjects for the better of the ruler. Machiavelli’s concept for a prince’s soldiers is a malicious brainwash. A feared ruler will only induce despise from his people. I regard Machiavelli’s justification for a prince containing aspects of evil to be a unethical form of governing a society. His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness.
‘ I'm here to make sure that my son never causes problems again.’ He turned and glared at Cole” (40). Mr. Matthews doesn’t even care about Cole; all he wants is to get out of this mess. Mr. Matthews doesn’t care about anyone except himself and the anger that controls him now will control him forever because he doesn’t care to change and mostly doesn’t want
Clean forgot I told him to jump in. Well, I aint done nothing like that no more” (Steinbeck 44). Even George is remorseful for what he has done in the past he still continues to demean Lennie. Which (due to his childlike demeanor) Lennie does not notice when he is being made fun
‘Sit down’ (Golding 103). The conflict that arises when Jack speaks over the conch shows the clash between the organized personality of Ralph, who wants the conch to be used to create a system, and the unpredictable personality of Jack, who does not believe that the conch is necessary. When Jack calls an assembly using the conch, he tries to convince the group that Ralph is a bad leader. “‘He isn’t a proper chief.’ Jack clutched the conch to him. ‘He’s a coward himself’” (Golding 129).
Oedipus was literally refusing to believe a word Creon said, because in Oedipus’s mind, Creon was King Laius’s killer. Creon repeatedly denied the accusations Oedipus bellowed at him, and yet Oedipus paid no attention to that, notwithstanding the fact that he had virtually no evidence to prove his theories. Comparably, when Oedipus implored Tiresias to tell him who Laius’s killer was, despite Tiresias’s promising, Oedipus did not actually want to know. Since Oedipus insisted, Tiresias told him, but as he had predicted, Oedipus did not believe him and grew hostile. Tiresias became annoyed at Oedipus’s foul behavior, quickly asking if Oedipus had “miss[ed any of his] words?
I think he just wanted to pursue life in a different way. Chris was not seeing life the way anyone else was, so he decided to brush off into the wild and be free on his own. Though he did not survive, he was still a very bright, arrogant human being. Shaun Callarman states, “He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.” Chris knew going into the wild that he did not have much survival skills, but that did not stop him from doing what he wanted to do because he did not care about society and was just completely over everything which was why he made the move to the wilderness. This clearly shows us that Chris did not have much common sense.
