In the book The Lord of the Flies we can see that many conflicts happen while the kids are in the island, most of these conflicts are struggled to be solved. The main conflict and the one that I 'm going to be talking about is the conflict between Ralph and Jack, were both boys compete for power. Ralph is more civilized and tries to make a fire and build tents while Jack is more of a savage who uses violence and wants to hunt all the time. Its is easy to see that in this literary piece the author uses many conflicts to make the reader visualize wants happening in the island. Ralph is voted by the boys to be the leader of the group, in the book he represents leadership, civilization and order.
The most outstanding example of this discrepancy, in my opinion, is Jack Merridew. Jack views himself as a sort of alpha, a chief among the boys. He believes that he has a right to be chief, beginning with his trivial ability to sing, but later includes his ability to hunt. “There was a moment’s struggle and the glimmering conch jigged up and down. Ralph leapt to his feet.
A person once said “The hardest part of growing up, is letting go of what you were used to; and moving on with something you’re not.” Ralph from Lord of the Flies and Eragon from Eragon grow up but, in different ways. Ralph is a young boy who gets stranded on an island with a bunch of boys and Eragon a 15 year old boy who lives with his uncle and his cousin Roran and finds a mysterious stone in the woods that hatches into a dragon. Although they both grow up throughout the book they, do it in different ways. Ralph is dependent on others to help him solve problems in his life and Eragon is has an innocence and encounters evil and has to face this evil.
Naturally, people portray freedom as a good thing, but is it really good? In “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding, the theme of civilization and savagery is discussed and it becomes clear that rules and laws restrict human behavior, without it humans take advantage of freedom. In this book, young boys are evacuated from Britain in World War II. Their plane gets shot down and they all become stranded on a desert island. On this island they have lots of freedom but it affects them negatively, they become estranged from civilization.
Holden from the book “the Catcher in the Rye” and Ralph from “Lord of the Flies” have a lot of differences. Many of these dissimilar matters have to do with the fact that they are dealing with two completely unalike circumstances in their lives at the time. Some of the main things that make Holden and Ralph so mismatched are that Ralph takes a huge responsibility meanwhile Holden does not, they both are trying to survive, but two varying reasons, and about their futures. Since Ralph ends up being stuck on an island with a bunch of boys and no adults, he decides to take a big responsibility of becoming the leader. ““All right.
In the novel Lord of the Flies, it is obvious that the character Jack is the savage compared to all the other boys on the island. Jack is the cause of all the arguments and death that will later occur on the island. Many of the boys on the island are scared of Jack when he acts cruel and selfish. This makes them join his group, so they don't have to worry about getting hurt. During a group meeting Jack says “We shall take fire from the others,” (Golding 161).
Lord of the Flies by William Golding and The Running Man by Stephen King share similarities in their themes, but they have differences in how the story is being told. These two novels are similar in the way that they both have a dystopian society; they also both have aspects of savagery. Differences are the relationship between Jack and Ralph in the Lord of the Flies, also the relationship between Ben Richards and The Games Network in The Running Man is different compared to the Lord of the Flies. In The Lord of the Flies, the plane crashed on an unchartered island, and Ralph was designated the leader.
The American dream is a shifting concept, not always clear, almost never constant. It has meant many things over the years of this country’s existence: wealth, power, hard work, happiness. But no matter what it seems to be, the American dream has always been about the underdog. Dating back to our unlikely success in the revolutionary war, Americans have always integrated that pride of improbable success into our culture, but few have ever stopped to ask whether or not the underdog is always the one we should be supporting. Golding gives a prime example of this when he shows the fear Ralph has of the tribe that threatens him in the later chapters, all culminating in a man hunt.
