As the boys get closer they would get more frightened, so the boys went back to their shelters. Simon finds out about the beast Therefore Simon decided to go perceive the beast. He notices that it was the dead pilot from the plane accident. Once Simon has found out it’s not a actually it just the dead pilot with parachute.

Numerous children are stranded on an island due to a plane crash and are fighting to stay alive and be rescued. In the following paragraphs, it's explained how Jacks savage ways and oblivious mind set creates his disbelieving behavior as to why he doesn't care about being rescued. In The Lord Of The Flies, William Golding creates a psychological allegory through the development of Jack character and the symbolism of fire to uncover the fact that as people disregard logic and their needs in order to survive, they become barbaric. Firstly, Jack doesn't care about the rescue signal fire going out. Ralph mumbled, "They let the body fire go out" (Golding, 68).
After the birth of Victor’s creature, he realizes that his creation was abnormally strong and potentially dangerous. With this strength, Victor becomes scared and wants his creation dead. Victor’s creation, like all other beings, have feelings and emotions like that of an infant. He needs love and someone to teach him as one would a child. When Victor tries to kill his creature-like “Son”, the creature runs away where he is then sought after as a threat to society rather than someone looking for a companion.
However, this power creates negative emotions amongst the children and causes pandemonium and conflict within their society. In this process, Golding argues that when one has power, it negatively affects relationships due to how one with power conducts oneself and how one treats others. In particular, a person with power leads to one becoming arrogant.
William Golding uses the “beast” to pose this question seriously and strike fear in the heart of the readers. The beast started as a something mysterious and scary that gave nightmares to littluns but became something that brought the evil that was hidden in the boys’ hearts. The beast symbolizes littluns’ feelings of insecurity arising from the fear of the unknown, absence of grownups and bullying behaviors of some of the bigguns. Beast was first mentioned when Piggy voiced the concern of a boy with a mulberry birthmark. “He wants to know what you’re going to do about the snake thing.” Many of the boys were ecstatic to the news that there were
From when the boys first came on the island they are actions were normal then later on as the boys started gaining the fear of the beast they started doing abnormal actions they took certain steps because of the fear in them that had been planted by the beast in this case. One of the main reasons fear is spread through the boys is the beast, though we find out the beast is nothing but their imagination. When the beast is first brought not many people believe its true while the fear of the beast strikes other people really quickly. Fear can manipulate and influence people 's actions and choices. The following quote shows how piggy isn 't scared of the beast because he doesn 't believe its real so he is calm and isn 't
The book is about boys who crash on a desert island. They have to find a way to survive until they get rescued. Ralph and Piggy meet each other after their plane crashed. They walk to the beach, wondering if there are more boys on the island. Ralph finds a conchs, and blows on it.
However, Ralph and Jack try to make them believe that there are no monsters. Yet, one littlun tells the group that he has seen the beast come from the ocean. This then causes a chaotic situation because Jack wants to kill the beast; all of the boys leave except for Ralph, Simon and Piggy. Though Ralph doesn’t call them back because he is afraid that if he blows the conch and the kids don't return then the power he has would be disintegrated. Summary 6 In the night, Sam and Eric are the ones that were suppose to watch the signal fire,
Ralph proposes that they build a fire at the top of mountain on the island so that if ships were to pass by they would see the fire and potentially rescue them. Although they fail at keeping the fire going at first, Jack and his hunters nominate themselves to make sure the fire keeps going. As they attempt to reignite the fire, it results in trees nearby being set ablaze. Golding describes the fire in a way of giving it animal-like movements: “the fire laid hold on the forest and began to gnaw.”(44) In this quotation he foreshadows that eventually power and fear will start to eat away at the civilization the boys have created with each other and in their own minds. By Golding using the word “gnaw”, he gives the impression that power and fear won't fully consume the boys straight away, but will slowly, build up to it to show slowly how all will fail and fall, leading to them losing connections to civilization, and leading up to savagery.
