Simon is brave when he talks to the Lord of the Flies in his imagination: “‘You are a silly little boy,’ said the Lord of the Flies, ‘just an ignorant, silly little boy.’ Simon moved his swollen tongue but said nothing. ‘Don’t you agree?’ said the Lord of the Flies, ‘Aren’t you just a silly little boy?’Simon answered in the same silent voice.”” (Page 143). From this quote, one can see that Simon is brave because the Lord of the Flies is talking to him and he is not scared. This is brave because the other little boys would have run away but Simon stays and lets the Lord of the Flies finish talking. It is also brave because the Lord of the Flies is taunting him and Simon is not fighting back.
The boys voted on Ralph, because he was the one taking charge and he played along with anyone. After scary events started to happen, Jack was misunderstanding the problem, but Ralph saw it. Ralph tried to explain to the group they have to start taking control. The boys wanted to play and be kids. Jack took advantage of this by disagreeing with Ralph.
These jokes and commissions helped enable the men defend against their anxieties, fear, anger and other disturbing emotions, as they were not capable of doing this in the past. The men could subdue any emotion that was too high strung in their system, and let it out in a melancholy form that helped them cope with problems no one else could really understand. As a result, the acutes started “grinning now, not so uneasy anymore”, and eventually little by little, the patients showed improvement with themselves and was portrayed by the ability not just to laugh, but laugh
And I've got the conch-" (Golding 150). Ralph's sensibly persuades the boys, instead of retaliating with force or emotions. His calm and collective persona when reasoning with Jack is an example of how confident leaders should act. Moreover, when Ralph is faced with the dilemma of how to deal with Jack's new tribe, he considers going back to them because he reasons that they are all boys, not savages, and that being rescued is a serious matter (Golding 170). Despite Jack and the other boys' recent inhumane nature, Ralph still considers joining forces with them because he is still responsible for them, and his focus is still on getting everyone rescued.
Letting the reader clearly imagining this tropical oasis the boys are stranded on. He also presents themes prevalent in everyday adolescent life such as a desire to be respected, in addition to challenging authority. Lord of the Flies is a classic because it's a timeless parable about human nature, given a beautiful environment, people will still want leaders, form hierarchies and will find reasons to fight each other. What makes it so shocking is that it's a book about children, who are generally portrayed as innocent and well-meaning in literature, though Golding felt that children are no different to adults, because human nature is
When the other boys hear the conch, they gather” (Novel for Students 176-177). This critic is stating that even though the boys are stranded on an island they can still work together to survive. The novel states, “They obeyed the summons of the conch, partly because Ralph blew it, and he was big enough to be a link with the adult world of authority…” (Golding 59). This quote shows that the boys on the island saw the conch as a sign of authority and the meaning of being civilized. The conch shell also is a major symbol of power and respect in the novel.
Initially, the boys were assigned to tasks that help the group’s well-being such as shelter building, gathering water, or in Jack’s case, maintaining the fire. He soon abandons his duty and goes off to have fun through hunting, causing the fire to go out and prolonging their stay on the island. This situation shows the initial benefit an individual can gain from selfishness, but at the cost of society’s advancement. Although he didn’t get any meat from this trip, he still got to enjoy the “brilliant world of hunting, tactics, [and] fierce exhilaration”(), while the other boys did boring yet important tasks. Through his denial of his critical responsibility, he creates a class distinction within the boys’ society where he is the “one percent” that is able to pursue wealth and prosperity, while being supported by the “working poor” (the other boys).
I don’t care, the boy said, sobbing I don’t care.” (McCarthy 85). With this quote the meaning of “carrying the fire” becomes muddled, the boy is naive, he’s naturally sympathetic and his first thought is to help the boy. The father is cautious and only concerned with the immediate safety of his son. However, even with this schism, the way the man and the boy interact with other people on the road is completely dependent on trust. The boy must have faith in the man or else they could both end up dead.
There 's no rules of any sort on this island these boys landed on they are free to do whatever they want whenever they want. The boys true colors in a way come out slowly but surely, yes the environment is not helpful but William Golding is try to show you men are capable of horrific things. In the Lord of the Flies William Golding throughout the book is trying to show you that society should recognize man is evil. Body Paragraph #1: These boys are full of fear they 're human it 's expected but not all the fear is about being scared of the island. In the middle of the book Simon starts making the other boys think about who the real beast it and what they have become he says “Maybe there is a beast...maybe it 's only us.” Pg.
Although he is organized and meticulous he also tends to be naive at times with his foolish friend Patrick Star who isn’t as bright. When he is with his best friend Patrick there is no telling what mischief they will get into and their stern neighbor Squidward Tentacles must endure it all if it isn’t someone else. SpongeBob loves to help his friends, go jelly fishing and do karate in his free time when he is not helping someone in need whether it’s a stranger or his friends. I chose SpongeBob as a character because he is a good-hearted person no matter the situation or person and is a ray of positivity. 2.
