Ralph, representing civilization and Jack, representing savagery are now heading in different directions. Yet the responsibility of leadership falls on both of them. Some of these boy’s priorities turn away from the signal fire and onto the uncivilized life of the wilderness. Golding includes the human nature to change and adapt to a situation, showing how easy it is for something good to turn bad. On the other hand, Ralph and a few others try their best to keep their only hope of rescue, the fire burning, “Can 't you see we ought to--ought to die before we let the fire out?” (Golding 87).
When Rainsford was voicing his opinion to Whitney about how the hunted do not have feelings, it foreshadows that Rainsford will be hunted. Another example of foreshadowing Connell uses throughout the story is that Rainsford’s and Whitney’s conversation about Ship-Trap Island foreshadows Rainsford being on the island. The foreshadowing intensifies the plot for the reader’s enjoyment. Connell also uses irony in “The Most Dangerous Game”. The sea that almost slaughtered Rainsford in the onset of the story, rescued him in the closing of the story.
His qualities of showing strength along with intelligence sets him apart from the rest of the characters, leaving him to develop essential rules for the group to follow, since it’s the only thing that’s holding the boys back from anarchy (Goulding 91). Such rules were keeping a fire going on the mountains, using the rocks beyond the bathing pool as a lavatory, shelters needing to be built, and keeping water from the stream in coconut shells under fresh leaves. All of these rules ended up being broken by the group and Ralph addressed them during a solemn meeting (Golding 79-81). Their one and only chance to get off the island turned out to be when Jack and the rest of the group disobeyed about keeping the fire lit on the mountain for ships to see the smoke. The “little uns” had started disappearing and without any rules being followed, they were never found.
‘We mustn’t let anything happen to Piggy, must we?’” (117). When Simon speaks up and says he’ll go. Ralph turns to look at Jack, clearly ticked off. This part of the text shows how Jack is already not too fond of Piggy and Ralph is annoyed about Jack’s sarcasm because he believes he’s right and values Piggy. In summary, Lord of the Flies is a novel about a bunch of boys who get stuck on a deserted island and have the proper resources, and Ralph and Jack have different ways charge to control it
So what, why should we care about John Steinbeck’s lesson of responsibility? John Steinbeck shines light on the reality of the late 1930’s and shows us how misunderstood mentally challenged people like Lennie were. And how one hero named George tried his best to save another misunderstood person from the booby hatch. John Steinbeck’s novel not only shows the readers of the time the lives of mentally challenged people but also shows that the key to your wildest dreams is responsibility. Even if people don’t have a mentally challenged friend to take care of people may have other responsibilities to achieve your own dreams and goals.
Flat character. Ralph is shaped by the inter and external conflict because he goes determined to get off the island and having a high strong feeling in him until they are saved. Static character. At the end 200 to 202 you can see him break down and realize what 's happened. Piggy: Piggy is who keeps Ralph on track and reminds him of the important stuff that needs to get done, even if no one hardly listens to him.
Odysseus is also acutely aware of his surroundings especially for an illusion, for example, the island with the sirens singing. Even if these were warnings from the gods and goddesses themselves, he would still learn and remember what to do the next time he encounters these problems in his life. Lastly as I mentioned before, a hero must always show mercy to their foe no matter how bad they are. But Odysseus doesn’t show any mercy to his enemies, not even his own when they disrespect his honor and pride. A real hero doesn’t kill even if their honor and pride has been torn to shreds, yet Odysseus killed all those suitors because they were ransacking his house and eating his goods.
The characteristic that Louie undergoes is the skill of Strong Problem-Solving. The Strong Problem-solving skill is when a crisis emerges, people are able to spot the solution that will lead to a safe out-come. However, if you are not a non-resilient person you sometimes develop tunnel vision, which basically mean that you fail to notice important details or take advantages of oppurtunities. In this excerpt from the book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Laura showcases how these three men get stranded on an island and they must find how to get back home. The first obstacles that they face was first when they did not have any food.
The prisoners taken captive with Levi were given these jobs at the detention camps once they arrived that were challenging and dangerous, but the leaders gave no sympathy. A quote that stands out by Levi is, “But this was the sense, not forgotten either then or later: that precisely because the lager was a great machine to reduce us to beasts, we must not become beasts; that even in this place one can survive, and therefore one must want to survive, to tell the story, to bear witness; and that to survive we must force ourselves to save at least the skeleton, the scaffolding, the form of civilization.” Levi illustrates that he, as well as others, have thought the worst thoughts and has had to hold themselves back from doing things they would regret, but they continue to be wise and stout for the end of their misery. Making friends aside from working and sleeping was crucial for survival, and Levi had made a lifelong friend, Alberto. They were “the two Italians” and became inseparable. They were bunk-mates for six months and had been through everything together until Alberto left.
Montag must abandon all previous views and principles he had about society to enable a change. Through the character of Montag, Bradbury suggests that individuals are courageous when they sacrifice themselves for the improvement of society, even when there is a risk of achieving nothing. Initially, Montag seems as static and obedient as all the others in this totalitarian society; however, through talking with Clarisse, Montag’s views change, causing him to question the rules around him. He realizes how dull and pointless his life is. Stealing the book from the fire is his first courageous act because it shows how much Clarisse has influenced him.
