Which is even more surprising that at such a young age they don’t care at all. Jake Abbott seemed to have a much different prison experience than most other people, or at least that what it seems that way from how prisoners are treated today. Jake seemed to also push the buttons of the guards, one instance when he said that he had been waiting to splash water in the guards face for a while. Then after being given another thirty days on the starvation diet, when they gave him the paper to sign about it he wadded it into a ball and threw it at the officers’ chest, giving him yet another thirty days (In the belly of the beast). It seems that he is very reckless in the way that he goes about serving his time.
“The pig’s head is cut off; a stick is sharpened at both ends and ‘jammed in the crack’ of the earth.” (207) In William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, a group of (British) kids find themselves upon an island after a plane accident. Even though the kids do try to survive with each other, one group of kids wanted to set up a rescue fire, and another group of kids desired hunting for survival (because they don’t care about being rescued as much as the other group). This conflicts both of these groups from doing what they want. The kids are then separated, then separate into two civilizations after some time out of civilization. One being a civilized bunch (the kids who wished to have an active rescue fire), and another group that lived like beasts, but not completely (the kids who wanted to hunt).
In the beigining of the book it is shown that Ralph and Jack have very difrent veiws on life on the island. Than Jack gains independes and other boys join him in his independens.

Afrer Ralphs alies fall he rus away and when Jacks tribe are trying to find Ralph they burn the island without a secont thought. All of this violece may have been avodet if Jack and Ralph had not been so difrent.

Throughout the novella, Lennie is constantly harassed by the boss’s son, Curley, except it is not for the reason of being mentally challenged. Curley was a “little guy” and as Candy had mentioned, “Curley’s like a lot of little guys. He hates big guys. He’s alla time picking scraps with big guys. Kind of like he’s mad at ‘em because he ain’t big guy” (Steinbeck 26).
In his novel, “Lord of the Flies,” Golding shows that society is defective due to defective human nature. He does this through the use of a group of boys stranded on an island, their behaviour in this situation and their progression towards savagery. He further illustrates this point by using numerous symbols. From the start of the novel, Ralph, the oldest of the boys, is presented as an “ideal” person and leader. He calls the first assembly, using the conch shell he and Piggy found and is voted into the role of leader by the majority of the boys.
The conch was used to summon all the boys together. Ralph participates in the bullying of Piggy, and he allows it to continue. Overall Ralph is an extremely respectful boy. At the beginning of the story, Ralph gives Jack authority and power, so there there is equality within the group. Also, Ralph never followed the idea of hunting, because he thought it was savage, but soon learns to appreciate hunting when a boar attacked the group, and Ralph kills it.
The repetition used throughout Chapter 9 of Lord of the Flies develops Golding’s theme of how savagery is shrouded within civilization, by demonstrating the boys slow progression into monsters as they spend more time on the island. On page 118, the boys are dancing around in their hunting circle and repeatedly chanting “‘Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’” (Golding 118). Their use of force and incessant jeering about murdering the beast is important in exhibiting how the boys have, for the time being, forgotten their fear and have focussed solely on fulfilling the urge to kill that has risen up inside of them.
“In the novel, a loss of control occurs, the evil within emerges and many people are killed” (Panbury).. Intelligence leads to Piggy because he is very smart and he helps everyone with a lot of stuff he knows how to build shelters and he found the conch shell and if it wasn't for him they may have never found it.The Boys are all stuck on an island because a plane went down and the boys were on the plane and it crashed on the island and the boys don’t have anyone to tell anyone so there stuck they’re until someone finds
Leadership on the Island In the novel, Lord Of The Flies, when a group of boys get stranded after a plane crash. The boys must find a good leader and there’s only two good choices it’s between a self arrogant kid named Jack and a smart,peaceful, and kind boy named Ralph for some reason something happens and so their was also some other kids that are with them the names of the kids are piggy and Simon.The reason that some people think that jack is a good leader is that he get’s to hunt all day meaning that the tribe is getting to eat and the other characteristic is he doesn’t care about the rules and he is the reason why piggy and Simon are dead in the story and he was a mean leader by turning innocent kids on an island that are only try to survive and turned them into killers.All Jack really had in mind was to hunt for pigs and a so called beast that had never really been seened.The reason Jack and everyone knows about the beast is because of a kid name simon saying that there was something in the woods and what looked a snake, but it didn’t really show itself so simon just assumed it was a beast and ralph is saying that their is no such thing as the beast or anything on this island to be afraid of.Jack on the other hand is saying that if their was a beast
