Now Jack is the most far gone. He went completely primal and savage. He killed two people, whipped a little boy, and chased down Ralph to the point that if the navy officer were not there, he would have been killed as well. He was the most primitive, taking over power and trying to assert his dominance. He participated in the anal penetration of a sow and really didn’t have any sanity.
This proves that Sir Mordred was a traitor to his own kingdom and more importantly, a traitor to his king. But on the other hand, King Arthur did the right this to end Sir Mordred 's life since he was full of hatred and only wanted to marry Queen Guinevere and bring pain to the
A quote that shows how the use the conch to prevent the boys from going to savage is when Piggy, “ Lifted the white, magic shell. “Piggy shouted again. “Which is better to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?” Again the clamor and again “Zup!” Ralph shouted against the noise.
Lord of the Flies is a book about the savagery of human nature, emphasized when a group of British schoolboys crash land on an island, and attempt to rule themselves, ending in tragedy. Lost, a T.V show loosely based on the Lord of the Flies, is about a group of airplane passengers who also crash onto an unknown island, and have to try and survive until or if rescue comes. Both tell stories of a group of stranded people, trying desperately to survive and fend for themselves on an island that seems otherworldly. They share many parallels, for example, both portray a “beast” or monster that wreaks havoc on the survivors. Many of the characters share similarities as well.
One example of how Jack’s autocratic rule comes from violence and fear is how he reacts at the mere mention of the idea that his hunters are not as powerful as he believes. This is illustrated when Ralph, angry at Jack for letting the fire go out, expresses a negative opinion of Jack’s hunters, while Piggy, a logical thinker who supports Ralph, is nearby: “‘What about my hunters?’ ‘Boys armed with sticks.’ Jack got to his feet. His face was red as he marched away.
He tries to be the most violent and most savage boy by putting clay and mud to cover their faces. Ralph then calls a meeting but during it Jack makes a scene where he wants to go on his own and make his own tribe. Before he leaves Ralph 's group he turns back and asks if anybody would like to join him and people do. He and his tribe all turn into a violent group and all they want to do is kill pigs and cause terror to Ralph’s tribe. “Kill the pig!
He orders his tribe to hunt down Ralph and kill him simply because he was scared and unwilling to give up his leading position on the island. “ They hate you, Ralph they are going to do you.’ They are going to hunt you. ’”(188). Jack is in raged with anger and decides that Ralph is far more dangerous than he will be.
Savages Sweep Society “‘Just an ordinary fire. You’d think we could do that, wouldn’t you? Just a smoke signal so we can be rescued. Are we savages or what?’’’ (170).
Jack and his tribe attack Piggy, Samneric, and Ralph in order to get fire. “... and he made stabbing motions with his spear. From his left hand dangled Piggy’s broken glasses”(168). For the need of fire, the boys would go to war with each other. Even though the fire is a useful tool, it leads to a war between the two groups that ends with Piggy’s death and almost Ralph’s.
Because the monster experiences violence rather than nurture, he turns violent against mankind. The violence from the De Lacy family causes the creature to “feel anger, then a desire for revenge, and finally a violent severing from all that is human” (Mellor). This exhibits violent recurrence that arises as nurture is replaced by violence. This violence leads to murderous actions. When the monster first encounters William, he hopes to “educate him as [his] companion” (126, Shelley).
Steinbeck’s ‘Flight’ masterfully describes how society can morally crush an individual and turn one into someone totally different – an animal who is left cold, and deprived of all once known attributes. This story also begs the question to the audience about manhood – what does it really mean to become a man? Does it warrant taking someone’s life in order to feel powerful and wanted? Or undergoing an epic journey to an unknown territory with little knowledge of the outside world? Steinbeck 's "Flight" wonderfully articulates how society can chew up and spit out the individual if tampered with, and Pepe 's experience rightfully exemplifies this.
“Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph..tore the skin and flesh…”(pg181). This quote not only defines the brute force of Merridew, it would also explain why the other children are afraid of Jack, Looking at this in a perspective of a hunter, if anyone were to resist him( he already shown that he has the guts to kill), Jack will just punish you mentality and physically to convert you to his side, or even murder you if you don’t. With that being said, that’s why Jack is never suited of becoming an effective leader, because he doesn’t use democracy, but rather dictatorship(just like Kim Jong
After jack had full control over the boys he killed Simon, allowed piggy to be killed, hunted Ralph and burn down the island. All of those actions prove that if given the chance humans will behave in a flawed
The savage emitted a heinous noise. He and his companions, refusing to blend with the ancient picture of boys in school uniforms, start yelling and running after a pig, haphazardly throwing twigs at it. On the other side of the resort-like island, where the savages live, the sun's smile scorches a small number of boys as they decide how to preserve what little they have left of their society. Society, the interactions and the network of different special connections between people, is the glue of human civilization. And here, plunged into anarchy, the society has become a crumbled former shell of itself.
