This is a scene in which Jack did not actually respect Piggy and he thought that he had power over him. This difference was caused because of the way he looks like. He had a different aspect than the rest of the children considering that he was bigger and used glasses. Jack uses Piggy’s physical appearance to defined him, which leads to exclusion and creating a target off of Piggy. The other huge event in history which is a powerful example is racism against African Americans in the United States.
Although, they may not know it, they all need each other and they all need that friendship and trust. One man cannot be on their own, for they grow crazy, and all of the characters show this at some point in the story. Many of the men are blind of this, George being a great example because of his poor choice at the end of the novella. George shoots Lennie in the head so that he can move on with his life, and because Lennie does some terrible things. But George does grow lonely, and this is a lesson to all the men.

Jack accuses Piggy of starting this riot,then Roger hurls a bolder at him and that is the end of Piggy. When Piggy is eliminated it gives Jack power and pleasure,he has accomplished one of his important goals. Since the beginning the boys have bullied Piggy whenever they needed to feel powerful,however the harassment of him intensifies,and Jack begins to hit him openly.

He isn’t a proper chief.” This act of cruelty was designed to motivate the boys of the island to reject Ralph as their leader. By comparing Ralph to Piggy, Jack tries to manipulate people into thinking he would be an exemplary leader.
Paragraph Essay In this scene of Golding’s Lord of the Flies, we see Simon finally giving in to the madness that has rooted itself deep on the island, and deep inside of everyone; the island is merely an outlet for these boys to to let out the evil inside of them. Simon had inner demons like everyone else, but it seems only logical that in real life, Simon was hallucinating the pig head speaking to him. Simon was hungry, dehydrated, exhausted, and just escaped a hunt with the most violent of the group, not wanting to kill the pig.

Jack creates his mask and puts it on. According to Golding, “[Jack] looked in astonishment, no longer at himself but at an awesome stranger. He spilt the water and leapt to his feet, laughing excitedly” (63).
In Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, a group of boys’ are forced to live on an island without law and order. Therefore, many of the boys experience a savagery phase on the island, causing them to constantly resort to violence over an issue. These boys primarily consist of Jack’s tribe in the novel.

Extreme circumstances provoke precarious acts. As man attempts to survive, he forgets his moral code and reverts to instinctual behaviors. The boys in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies prove this: As the story progresses, their inner evil is evident through their savage actions and their moral behaviors are lost. In the beginning, the group of boys struggle to maintain a democratic environment.

The boys refuse to listen to him because he is an outsider and attempts to impose his parent-like nature upon them, which they dislike because they have finally escaped the power adults had over them. He is at the stem of the other’s road to savagery, and once he dies the island turns to complete chaos with no hope of turning back. Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever

Now stranded on an unknown island, the boys must govern themselves. Soon the burning desire for power overthrows their civilized approach of leadership as a deciding factor tears the boys apart. Golding effectively uses the symbolism of the conch, the beast, and painted faces to reinforce the theme of how difficult situations reveal the demons inside of everyone. Together these symbols are applied in order to lead the reader to the suspenseful end.
