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.
Then on p. 373, King Arthur kills sir Mordred for all the pain and trouble he has caused for this by stabbing him with a spear, but before Mordred died, he stabbed King Arthur on his head so hard that it went through his helmet. 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
“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. “Which is better, law and rescue, or hunting and breaking things up?”(11.200-207). As the boys start to turn savage, the conch however loses its influence among the boys. “ The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist.“ (11.209) This quote signifies the destruction of
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. Piggy put on his one glass and looked at Ralph. ‘Now you’ve done it.
Once Odysseus kills all the suitors nobody thinks anything of it, they see it as actions that come from men that have become strong enough to hurt those that do wrong to them. In modern times men it is the people that tell the men that it is okay to acts with aggression because that makes them
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!
At the end of the Novel you can tell that he is very different from when he was in the beginning. 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. He is closing off the idea that he is possibly being a dangerous person and being completely hostile.
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). The novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, takes place in the midst of the Cold War, when some boys find themselves stranded on a deserted island because their plane crashed, with no way of returning back home, which leaves them only with hope.
Because of this, they not only set their mountain on fire, one of the boys gets burned in the flames and dies. 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.
Similarly, after the De Laceys beat the monster, he feels there are “none…men that existed who would pity or assist” him, causing him to “declare everlasting war against the species” (122, Shelley). 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.
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.
When Ralph screamed at Jack that he’s chief, Meridew in response, charged at the original leader as if he was bloodlusted. “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
This is a flaw in human nature after limitations were lifted Vlad started brutal punishments proving golding 's so point. 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
