While the others boys have veered off from the first said rules, Piggy has remained loyal to them. In the words of Piggy, “I thought they wanted the conch. They came for something else” (168). Piggy views the conch as the most important item on the island and as a symbol of Democracy among the boys, while the other boys see Piggy’s glasses
Dynamic Character Analysis Piggy Piggy is a fat, shy 12 year old boy who has asthma and isn't very physical. He wears glasses that end up helping the boys in more ways than they'd think. It creates fire for them, this is an essential to living on the island and the boys didn't even thank him for letting them use his glasses, (which they took from him) in fact they take them straight off his face. He’s your typical stereotype of a fat 12 year old kid. At first he starts off as not being liked by anyone and he also doesn't wanna do anything but very quickly he changes, Ralph and some others start to see him for who he really is a loving and caring person.
This quote explains how clever and quick witted he is because he found a futile-object, and with a great mind, he turned it into an extremely useful tool that could bring everyone together. If he had not come up with this plan, everyone who survived the plane crash would have eventually scattered across the island, and their situation would have also been a big mess. Later on throughout the story, an assembly was held due to inappropriate and lazy behaviors of the boys, and ultimately for letting the fire go out at the most crucial time when a ship passed by, which unfortunately didn’t see them. At the beginning of the assembly, Ralph couldn’t keep his head straight on what he wanted to say, unlike Piggy. The narrator states, “If you were chief you had to think, you had to be wise…” and the narrator continues, “Piggy could think.
These two boys look at things in a completely different way, they have two completely different personalities. As you read this book you will learn that Piggy goes from being scared to becoming the leader for a pack. But Ralph is the main leader and he wouldn't let anyone take his place. Piggy and Ralph looked at this very differently, Piggy wanted to keep the fire going so they would eventually get rescued by a boat that was passing by. Like in the beginning of the story, they all see a boat and Piggy freaks out because he can't see the smoke of the boat, page 66.
William Golding’s fictional, British novel, Lord of the Flies, presents a character that serves a two-part function as a “scapegoat” and a certain commentary on life. During WWII, a group of British boys are being evacuated via plane when they crash and are stranded on an island without adults. As time progresses, the innate evilness of human nature begins to overcome the savage society of young boys while Piggy, an individual representation of brains without brawn, becomes an outlier as he tries to resist this gradual descent of civilness and ends up shouldering the blame for the wrongdoings of the savage tribe. Up until his untimely death, Piggy is portrayed as the most intellectual and most civil character in the group of stranded boys. Right from the beginning, Piggy realized that “[they] got to do something,” (8) and he recognized the shell Ralph had picked up as a conch.
Piggy is an overweight kid who isn’t physically attractive, but is one of the most intelligent boys on the island. He uses his intelligence to try and solve the problems on the island. He is first introduced to us as “shorter than the fair boy and very fat” (1). He has all the qualities of a leader: thoughtful, sensitive, intelligent, organized, a good listener, and many more. However, his physical appearance causes people to think
Lord of The Flies The book Lord of The Flies by William Golding is about a group of British schoolboys who landed on a deserted island without any adult; after their plane crash, they will need to survive on their own until someone comes to save from the island. In Lord of the Flies, Piggy, one of the schoolboys on the island, wants order and peace with everyone. Piggy is considerate/ helpful to other, faithful to all rules/ laws, but inactive in activities. Piggy is considerate to others and helpful in the story by helping others in need. He shows this when one little boy asks for the conch and the people just laugh at the little boy but Piggy help by saying, “‘Let him have the conch!’ shouted Piggy ‘Let him have it!’”(35).
At first, I did not know too much about his character, but in the fourth chapter he showed new outstanding qualities that made him an immensely respectable character. For example, when Jack rudely refused to give Piggy meat, Simon passed his own meat to Piggy, and did not take his decision back even when Jack started yelling at the poor boy. This shows that Simon is generous and naturally a good person. Most people ignored how badly Piggy was treated and did not help whatsoever, while others joined in on the bullying. Even their leader of the society joined in on this cruel act, but Simon was the only one that looked out for Piggy when no one else would.
Jack is one of these persons in the book. He tends to judge Piggy by the aspects in his body that seem to stand out. From the start, it is clear that Jack does not treat Piggy the same way that he treats the rest of the children that were in the island. In some ways Piggy felt scared of Jack and felt like he needed protection from Ralph. His terror can be understood when Golding states, “His voice rose to a shriek of terror as Jack snatched the glasses of his face”(Golding 40 ).
