I knew why Mr. Morrison had come for him alone. Why Mr. Jamison was afraid for papa to go into town. Papa had found a way, as mama had asked, to make Mr. Granger stop the hanging : He had started the fire”. Papa had to find a way stop the hanging. So, he started the fire so that everyone would forget about the hanging and all join together to help put out the fire.
After befriending Stanley and Simon, (seen in Pg. 2) he was appointed leader by majority vote. Little did he know about the sworn enemy he has just made. The first tact he thought of was to make a fire, as a signal to other stray boats of planes to rescue them. Ralph saw the fire as hope, since it died out when no one helped, and when it thrived when everyone worked together.
In the book Fallen Angels Peewee shows that kind of courage. The book never said peewee was drafted it said he enlisted himself because “this Is the first place I ever been in my life where I got what everybody else got”(Myers 15) this shows courage because he doesn\\\'t let fear defeat him and he wants to be equal with everyone and kind of prove himself to everyone else That he is just as good and during the war, especially at the end both peewee and perry show courage by climbing out of the spider hole finding Monaco surrounded by Congs waiting for a chopper to come so they can kill as many
Piggy is one of the most loveable and underappreciated characters in the book. In The Lord Of The Flies if the children would have listened to Piggy's intelligent ideas, their experience on the island would be quicker and safer. His character symbolizes the best traits of humanity, however, his personal insecurity makes it hard for the other boys to follow him as a leader. Piggy portrays an adult like figure because of his rational thinking and mature behavior. Because of his physical appearance and tendency to be shy, he is unable to convince the boys that he can be trusted.
Leadership on the Island In the novel, Lord Of The Flies, when a group of boys get stranded after a plane crash. The boys must find a good leader and there’s only two good choices it’s between a self arrogant kid named Jack and a smart,peaceful, and kind boy named Ralph for some reason something happens and so their was also some other kids that are with them the names of the kids are piggy and Simon.The reason that some people think that jack is a good leader is that he get’s to hunt all day meaning that the tribe is getting to eat and the other characteristic is he doesn’t care about the rules and he is the reason why piggy and Simon are dead in the story and he was a mean leader by turning innocent kids on an island that are only try to
Primarily, Ralph is the one who keeps the boys from becoming savages by being civilized, but he doesn’t hunt and mistreats the people who voted for him. Intellectually, Piggy is the best in the island as he uses scientific inquiry such as constructing a sundial to keep track of time, but his weight problems and eyesight problems make him have a great disadvantage from Ralph and Jack, who are strong and tall. Simon could be one of the best leaders since he cares about everyone and is fair, but his inability to communicate clearly makes him a bad leader. Furthermore, Jack’s ruling style is like a dictator such as Idi Amin and Pol Pot. Lastly, Jack is the perfect leader as he provides protection, food, and asserts his rule representing whom the boss is.
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.

While trapped on an island full of little boys, some characters have to step up and take point while others are mere confidants who are mistreated and abused. Just like the real world, many people are left out and rejected but they still hold a place in society. Piggy, a young boy on the island, is treated poorly from the very beginning but yet he is known as the scientific, rational side of the civilization portrayed in Lord of the Flies. He quickly becomes Ralph’s confidant but serves a greater purpose in the book by giving rational insight and bright ideas on survival and also someone to pick on to increase insecurities and self power. Piggy served as Ralph’s lieutenant from the beginning to the end.
