When Ralph tries to tell Jack to follow the rules, Jack responds by saying “Who cares about the rules?”. This shows that he doesn’t want anything to do with Ralph or any civilized rules that will interfere with his own agenda (Golding 91). Jack does not consider how upset Ralph gets when he doesn’t follow the rules, which makes
He gathered his tribe and they make up a plan. In the quote above, Ralph is attempting to hide when the boys pass by him. Jack however notices him and Ralph realizes this may be the end. Jack, along with his tribe and their spears and painted faces run down Ralph through the forest even setting it on fire. In the end Ralph ends up being saved by luck, running into an officer.
Jack only cares about hunting and survival, while Ralph tries to stay civilized. Throughout their leader roles Ralph grew wise and Jack grew stronger. Ralph uses his power to create a democracy environment with his group. He uses his power to work towards a better society with the boys. Since Ralph grew wiser that makes him a better leader already, because he used his knowledge and skills to
At the start of the book, Ralph and Piggy are friends, but the moment Ralph gains power, he treats Piggy with animosity to show his dominance to everyone else. Later in the book, Jack invites Ralph and his tribe to a feast. After the meal, he offers the members of Ralph’s tribe to join his group, and Ralph dissuades those who agree, by saying that he will blow the conch and call an assembly. Nevertheless, Jack replies that he and his supporters “shan’t hear it” (Golding 167). This quote shows how much the relationship between Jack and Ralph has changed over time.
After Jack’s intentional killing of Piggy, he responds violently, “‘...That’s what you’ll get! I meant that! There isn’t a tribe for you anymore...I’m chief!’” Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph. The point tore the skin and flesh over Ralph’s ribs, then sheared off and fell in the water” (Golding 181). Jack’s jealousy of Ralph’s authority caused him to take away all of Ralph’s group members, and would lead him to wanting to ultimately take him down.
Ralph and his friends were about to fight Jack and his tribe, when a boulder pushed by Roger came down and knocked Piggy off a cliff, to a gruesome death. After Piggy hit the ground and his body washed away into the sea, Jack jumped forward screaming at Ralph that he had no tribe and no power anymore. “‘I’m the chief’ Viciously with full intention he hurled his spear at Ralph. The point tore the skin and flesh over Ralph’s ribs, then sheared off and fell in the water.” (Golding 181). At this point Jack has completely lost his innocence because he wanted piggy dead and did not feel anything for piggy after he watched him die.
By this point Jack already started to grow his hunting group and therefore grow in power. Because of this, he realizes he has enough power to create his own group and split from Ralph 's. This also shows that Jack feels like Piggy 's opinion is so unimportant compared to his that Jack goes against one of the rules he originally
Initially a pure of heart child is chose in Ralph but this eventually changes when Jack decides to start his own tribe. This leads to the boys leaving Ralph for the preferable leader: Jack, who’s violence and intimidation entices the boys to join him. The boys live in constant fear of a beast that Jack also uses as a tool to garner support. William Golding shows that humans follow corrupt leaders because they provide protection, exude confidence and manipulate effectively.
Jack isn’t taking into account the fact that Ralph is a rational leader and simply thinks of himself, which is selfish and arrogant. Jack, much like the id, strives to take control and overpower those around him, taking any means necessary to achieve what he wants. “Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy’s head.” (Golding 71). Jack’s violent encounter with Piggy was unnecessary and cruel, only proving that he is an impulsive and violent character who craves to be in control, getting upset when something doesn’t go his way. Ralph maintains that Jack is powerful and intimidating, frequently neglecting the rules in order to satisfy his own
Jack focuses his descisions on his wants over other needs. He lets the fire go out to hunt because hunting quells his want to feel important. Jack doesnt take their situation seriously. He is so focused on being better than Ralph and showing him one up that he spends no time thinking about how theyre going to get off the island. As
