Who will join my tribe?” This shows that Jack is manipulating the boys by not giving them an option. He is almost telling them that if you don’t go with me, my hunters won't protect you or get you food. This is one of Jack strategies to build up his group. He doesn’t care about the well-being of the boys though he main focus is just being in charge. When Ralph was in charge of the group Jack was very upset and mad.
The boys fall deeper into savagery and find themselves disconnected from order and authority, especially as Jack begins to defy Ralph and pull away from the tribe. As the story progressed, this right is abused when Piggy tries to speak and Jack tells him to shut up. Towards the end of the book when Jack is on the run from Ralph’s tribe, he thinks “there was no solemn assembly for debate nor dignity of the conch.” This shows how much the boys depended on the conch
When someone is to bring up the case around Jem, he tries to shut them down, he does not like hearing about it. Tom was found guilty and was soon killed after going to jail, and that hit Jem very hard, he was very tore up about it. In the book Jem specifically says, “No sir, they oughta do away with juries. He wasn’t guilty in the first place and they said he was.”(295) Jem constantly throughout the book claims that Tom is not guilty and wants it to change, and doesn’t know how to except that the jury said different and that’s how it has to
They had lots of disscusions on the beastie and the fear towards the beatie was too immense for the boys. They were slowly forgetting about the outside world once the boy considered the dead parachutist as the beastie and not as a parachutist. Chapter 8 1. Why do the boys refuse to vote for Jack as chief but slip off to join him later? The boys were afraid to say no to Ralph.
He does not want to help out on the island to benefit them, he would rather go hunting trying to kill pigs. Jack declared himself as chief and lead the hunters. When he came across a pig he wanted to kill it but he held back because he had no hunting skills. His ambition to kill a pig built up in him that he did not take orders from anyone anymore and moved on. He created his own tribe just so he could hunt for “meat.” Given the thrill of "irresponsible authority" he's experienced on the island, Jack's return to civilization is conflicted.
But now his father was not showing sympathy by the way he reacted to the was his son walked into the room of his parents screaming at the top of his lungs. His father shouting at him to get him to notice his mistake then ripped the tape out of his head with anger, pulling 60 hairs out of his scalp. And after all of that, he decided to make the situation worse to start disciplining his son by hitting. This to me shows how none of the charters in the story show sympathy and are all selfish. If I was in the father 's son shows being screamed at and also being hurt I would feel desperate, hopeless, but jealous.
Jack is disagreeing with Ralph on every topic, so he calls a meeting. During the meeting he insults Ralph and tries to make the boys promote him to chief. The boys will not do this which outrages Jack. Jack cannot deal with Ralph any more and declares, “‘I’m not going to be a part of Ralph’s lot’”(Golding 127). Ralph is now not only obsessed with hunting, but is straying from their ‘government’.
A man from the crowd began hitting Kaltenborns son. The police did nothing but smile. Nazis also start pestering a man named Edger Mower, whom they want to leave Germany. When Mower asks Dodd to help him stay in Germany, Dodd refuses because he does not want to get involved in German
Toward the end of the novel, Carlson is very insensitive to the fact that George had to kill Lennie, and is still in shock. He says, “Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin’ them two guys?”(107). Carlson just doesn't understand what it's like to lose a strong relationship, because he never had one. Therefore, he is extremely insensitive to George. Another example is when Carlson wanted to shoot Candy’s dog.
This was not an easy day for any of us and I was not mentally stable enough to make a choice from this change. Everyone seemed to be arguing, people were yelled at back and forth, different thoughts were debated as if one side was right and right in the moment I decided to leave that environment. I do not know if it was the best for me to do but I could not be there anymore and isolated myself but other managed to find me. “What’s the matter ? Why did you leave?” asked my cousin.
