The sow collapsed under them and they were heavy and fulfilled upon her.” (Golding 170). The savage in the book is “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” Now out of the terror rose another desire, thick, urgent, blind” (Golding 192) They killed the pig, and they make pig bleed. They are really savage.
Sometimes a person 's mistakes can lead them to the right path, others are lead to their own degradation. Sophocles ' play Antigone puts out a dramatic take on Greek tragedy as they tell the story of a dysfunctional family and their fates. Thrown into the throne of the royal family of Thebes, new King Creon waltzed the palace with a large chip on his shoulder. He ruled his kingdom out of fear with an iron fist and a heavy temper. Creon had his chance at a 'Happily Ever After ' if he could only control his obstinacy.
Ralph may be falling into evil but overall he is still a kid, and he still has innocence even if it does not amount to the innocence he had upon arriving to the island. Ralph knows that what has happened is wrong, and that they are veering aways from any kind of purity they started with. Jack takes on a new personality toward the end of the book, “He looked in astonishment, no longer at himself but at an awesome stranger. He spilt the water and leapt to his feet, laughing excitedly. Beside the pool his sinewy body held up a mask that drew their eyes and appalled them” (Golding 31-33).
Throughout Book 22, Achilles tries again and again to chase down and kill Hector, and is finally able to do so. Before he actually kills Hector, he tells him “I wish my stomach would let me cut off you flesh in strips and eat it raw for what you’ve done to me” (Iliad, Book 22, 384-86). Shortly after Achilles allows the Greeks to stand around and continually stab the corpse of Hector. However, not even this brutality satisfied Achilles. Eventually, he ended up completely disgracing Hector’s dead body in front of all of Troy, tying him up to a chariot and dragging him around, being “defiled in his own native land” (Iliad, Book 22, 449).
“He crawled forward and soon understood….the wind’s indignity.”(162). Simon was savagely killed by Jack and the other boys who had left the civilized state of mind behind.

"not by the hair on my chinny chin chin." "Then I 'll huff, and I 'll puff, and I 'll blow your house in." The pig tells the wolf no so the wolf destroys the house eats the pig. He then moves on to the second pig, whose house is built of sticks. He repeats the phrase, the pig says no, then he destroys the house and once again eats the pig.
The double standard of endless sacrifices paired with trying to increase influence around the home is no recipe for success. For now, it seems that no matter where men direct their focus, they will come up short, every single time. If they direct too much attention at home, their quality of work is subpar. If they direct too much attention to work, they hurt the most meaningful people in their life. Dorment brings this idea full circle by mentioning how "men have oppressed their wives, sisters, and daughters for pretty much all of recorded history, and now women are supposed to trust us to share everything 50-50?"
