Another example of this symbol is in the last chapter, when Ralph is being chased by the hunters, and he runs across the pig 's head again. He is driven to rage just by looking at it- he feels like it is laughing at him and even comments that it gleams white like the conch had. His rage in front of the Lord of the Flies symbolizes the evil within him. Golding also purposely compares the skull to the conch to show that savagery has replaced the civilization the conch
Jack thrives for control. Numerous times throughout the novel, he attempts to turn the boys against Ralph, the original head chief. He controls the boys, kills animals, and aids in killing Simon and Piggy. Jack ultimately overpowers Piggy and Simon, by helping with their death, much like the Id can overpower the superego. Jack decided killing is a higher priority than getting off the island, he shows that when he says, “Rescue?
One thing that people would do to survive is kill. An example from Lord of the Flies is when Jack and the hunters kill the pig for food and in the Hunger Games, in which Katniss Everdeen must kill other tributes to survive. Another thing people will do to stay alive is steal. A real life example is when some people will steal food from grocery stores to survive. They reach a point where they are so desperate that they must steal to survive.
He leads the brutal slaughter of a pig—and then Simon. He fosters rebellion and chaos.He throws a spear at Ralph with "full intention” of trying to kill him, and then sends the minions after him to finish the job. Jack 's hunger for power suggests that savagery does not resemble anarchy so much as a dictatorship system of abuse and power. Jack shows a loss of innocence and a gain of violence. Jack is a jealous, violent individual who craves power and eventually usurps it from Ralph throughout the novel.
Cut her throat. Spill her blood”(Golding). This phrase is originally only used when the boys are actually hunting pigs, but they later use it to convince themselves that they are killing pigs or a beast when they are actually assaulting other boys on the island. The phrase assures the boys that their actions are perfectly acceptable when they are actually becoming murderers. This phrase also develops the society itself, due to the fact that the boys become more savage and less civilized with the more time they spend on the island.
Although Ralph turns back to the rational thought, it is clearly shown in the battle for power there is no clear winner between humanity and savagery. This is again shown in the first intentional murder of a member of the island. This cannot be completely understood without some prior knowledge. In chapter eight Simon who has some type of spiritual connection to the island, alone comes face to face with the pigs head that is impaled on a stick stuck to the ground. The pig’s head swarming with flies comes to life and speaks to Simon as the lord of the flies suggesting that he’ll never be able to escape him and that’ll he have some “fun” with him.
Once he has finally killed a pig, however, he becomes more violent. He feels as though he is superior, and able to do anything. Taking the life of another living thing gives him the impression that he is more capable to lead. Therefore, he is no longer cooperative with Ralph; all he wants to do is get meat and kill. Through his aggressive personality, it becomes clear that Jack likes to pick fights.
They kill a mother pig. They cut off her head and put it on a sharpened stick. They put the head in a clearing in the jungle as a gift for the beast. Later, Simon sees the bloody, fly-covered head, and he imagines that the head, the Lord of the Flies, is speaking to him. The voice says that Simon will never get away from him because the Lord of the Flies is in every person.
However Two of the Ralph group member were killed by Jack group---Simon and Piggy. Ralph could only escape from them, at the end Jack group burn the forest and tried to find out Ralph and killed him, Ralph rush out of the forest and fall off on the beach, a group of Navy found and got shock what they have done. That’s all the story. Can book make us understand the story more clearly? More lively?
This line informs the reader that the ‘beast’ murdered by the boys is really Simon, another boy on the island. During that night, the boys, led by Jack, act merciless, and they do not stop attacking Simon until he is dead. Jack no longer follows civilized rules, and he essentially encourages murder, as well as whatever it takes to stay alive. This same behavior is seen after Roger kills Piggy with a rolling rock. Instead of mourning Piggy’s
