Besides, he's ends up getting crushed to an unfavorable and terrible passing by a huge rock. I was captivated by the line that said, in Roger's eyes, Piggy just resembled a "pack of fat." This sounded natural, so backtracking a couple of chapter found that the pigs were alluded to as "sacks of fat" also. At that point I sat around and considered how Piggy's name is "PIGGY", and about how the young men went step by step from executing pigs to murdering Piggy. It appears the boys begin to consider Piggy to be simply one more creature, and he is in this way executed as however that is exactly what he may be.
One reason humans are inherently savage is that they hurt innocent animals. An example from Lord of the Flies that demonstrates the savagery humans are capable of is the scene where Jack gets his spear to catch a pig. As the boys sharpen a stick to form a spear, Jack uses the spear to trail a pig, but the pig runs away from him. Jack then becomes irritated and walks back to the beach where he finds the boys building huts for the younger ones to live in. "Rescue?
The point where the reader can see the most loss of innocence is when Jack and his hunters murdered the pig and smeared its blood on their faces. The painting of the faces hides their former selves and assists them in becoming savages. Later in the novel the boys put the pig's head on a stick as a sign of accomplishment and another boy, Simon, stumbles upon the pig head also known as “The Lord of The Flies” in a peaceful clearing and it starts talking to him. After Simon's conversation with the pigs head he stumbles back to the boys where they mistake him for “The Beast” and end up attacking him and eventually killing him. This death symbolizes the boys finally losing all order and conscience that civilization used to provide them with.
His statement of having no mercy the next time gives great insight to his changing mindset. He will not hesitate to take a life anymore, he has lost a significant amount of his innocence because of this. After this encounter Jack goes on another hunt and is successful this time. He and the other bring the carcass back and tell Ralph, “’ I cut the pigs throat,’ said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. ‘Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?’ The boys chattered and danced.
Spill his blood!’” They kill it violently and take out the head and put it on top of a spear. Then Simon saw it and there was blood everywhere with flies on top. He has a terrible vision, which the head is speaking to him. He thinks he is the Lord of the Flies. The pig says to him that he will never escape then he faints.
The hoax makes everyone believe that he is dead. And he gained his freedom from his hoax. From this incident, it is shown his intelligent trickster and a good planning. By the way, he shot a wild pig and take a pig to the hovel. Then he spread the pig 's blood on the ground and also put his hair on the axe to convince people to believe that he was
This ol’ dog jus’ suffers hisself all the time. If you was to take him out and shoot him right in the back of the head-” he leaned over and pointed, “-right there, why he’d never know what hit him.””(44). As seen in this quote Carlson says that Candy should just shoot his dog to end his suffering. In the end, Carlson is the one to shoot Candy's dog and bury him. This is definitely an act of euthanasia.
Yes, I did see this, with my own eyes… children thrown into the flames.” (Wiesel 32). The Nazis were heartless and even threw babies into the pits to be burned to death. Mankind is to be civilized, equal, and just and this quote shows that these things are of no importance and that man cannot distinguish between moral and evil if they think that throwing babies into the flames to be burned is okay. Another example was when a young pipel was thought to be part of a sabotage against the camp officials and was sentenced to be hanged. On the day of the hangings, all the inmates had to attend and watch each and every inmate get hanged.
The excerpt from chapter 9 of Lord of the Flies, in which the boys, including Piggy and Ralph, kill Simon, represents the end of civilization and how human’s own bloodlust can make them destroy each other. The scene takes place in five small paragraphs with only two dialogues spoken by the entire group which are italicized. Golding has used the line, “Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood,” several times throughout the novel to show the savagery of Jack’s hunters, but this time, he replaced the “pig”with the “beast” to attract reader’s eyes and invite him into one of the most important scenes of the novel (Golding 69 and 152).
