Piggy is very order oriented. He is always trying to keep the boys on the island in order. The conch is the only thing that keeps these boys in order and is the only thing that Piggy cares so much about. For instance, Jack is trying to steal Piggy’s glasses, but Piggy doesn’t know this is what Jack is trying to do. Jack steals the glasses and Piggy says to Ralph, “I thought they wanted the conch,”(168) and this goes to show that he is more worried about losing the conch and the order than he is to lose his sight.
Who will join my tribe?” This shows that Jack is manipulating the boys by not giving them an option. He is almost telling them that if you don’t go with me, my hunters won't protect you or get you food. This is one of Jack strategies to build up his group. He doesn’t care about the well-being of the boys though he main focus is just being in charge. When Ralph was in charge of the group Jack was very upset and mad.
He is careless because he is constantly reminding doodle how he is disabled. Doodle is unwilling to participate in brother’s cold-hearted attempts of pointing out his mortalities. When brother showed an made him touch his casket he knew the expectations of doodle. As stated (. .
“Bollocks to the rules. We’re strong-we hunt!” (pg. 91)Jack cries this out after having enough of Ralph’s reprimanding. The boys natural evil instincts start to appear the longer they remain on the island instead of their old home. They begin to care less of each other as if they only care of their personal best.
Piggy tries to get the fear of the beast out of the boy’s head. He knows that the younger kids won’t be able to sleep if they are thinking about being murdered in their sleep. To get the fear of a beast out of the boys heads, Piggy tells them his thoughts on the beast. While talking to the boys, Piggy says there is nothing to fear “unless we get frightened of people”(Golding 84). Piggy figures out that the boys only fear what people tell them and what people can make them believe.
He wanted to escape the evils of his life and the world. He never meant to hurt anyone with his actions; even though his father suggested this. “How is it … that a kid with some much compassion could cause his parents so much pain?” (Krakauer 104). Chris wanted to escape his abusive father and the poison of his life at home. No one can truly be at fault for wanting to find freedom in a way that they feel and know is best.
Because Ralph follows Piggy, he never seems to turn to the “dark side”. He isn’t a savage like the others, who pushed Piggy away. Simon could also be considered a guide because he understood more about what was going on better than the others. He was able to figure out that the monster wasn’t really a monster. But no one ever listened to Simon, they made him an outcast, when really he could have helped them a lot.That is why they couldn’t think straight, they turned into monsters because they didn’t follow their “guides”.
‘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
His character traits make him seem rude to Lennie, but he does it just to keep him in check. At times he can still open up his soft side. Before Lennie gets shot George says, “I never been mad, and that’s the thing I want ya to know.” (106). Even though he did not say much you could get a very big message just from that. He is saying I want you to know that I was not rude just to be mean I was rude so nothing like this happened.
He is stating that the kids are alone, not what a bunch of kids who are homesick need to hear. When Piggy is described as “paler than before and breathless.” It shows that Piggy understood the facts, in that they were most likely not going to get off the island, no one else seemed to understand that. Piggy’s asthma usually kicks in when he is most angry or scared, he really is ruining the time on the island for the other kids. “Perhaps they knew where we was going to; and perhaps not.” Here, Piggy is first says “perhaps” as in, “we might get rescued after the war if they knew where we were.” Piggy’s second part of his speech says “But they don’t know where we are ‘cos we never got there.” Piggy is not saying “perhaps,” he is saying outright that they will not get off of the island. It is said that “The silence was so complete” Piggy is normally shut up when he tries to speak, but this time he was not.
Piggy shows he is scared that they are stuck on the island on their own with no adults. You can tell Piggy is scared by the tone of his voice when he replied to Ralph. Thus, showing that Piggy wasn’t the bravest out of all the other boys. Here 's an example of Piggy’s character transforming. In the book Jack is always making fun of Piggy.
So today we built the fire on top of the mountain and we used Piggy’s glasses to light the fire. After we made the fire I thought that it would be a good idea to have a meeting. At the meeting we disgust what we were going to do next and who was going to keep the fire going. Jack wanted to go hunting and I thought that we should build shelters. I let Jack and choir go hunting and they had to keep the fire going.
“Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.” (98) Even though the twins didn’t scream, they were both still scared since they were alone at night. The twins had no idea what the noise was because they missed the battle. They both thought that it was the beast since one of the littluns had claimed that they had seen it before. They were too afraid to explore what it was because they were alone in the dark, watching the fires. They didn’t even bother looking for the beast since they anxious since they believe that the beast is real.
