With no adults and no rules, the boys slipped into savagery. If you were in the island, who would you vote chief?

William Golding’s theory on sustainable government is having adults run it and having a symbol to represent power.
One day, he will be only a memory to his son, just like his father is to him. White uses a variety of rhetorical devices to convey the message to his audience that life moves quickly, not stopping for anything, including emotionally-charged diction, imagery, and personification.

I think of a man’s magnificent capacity that created this ship to conquer all that senseless space. When I look at mountain peaks, I think of tunnels and dynamite, when I look at planets, I think of airplanes (26-29).” As Foster explains in, How to Read Literature Like a Professor our character development can be influenced by where we are and our elevation levels as well.

One of the first things the adults determine is how many people are on the island and have survived the plane crash. The boys in Lord of the Flies, however, do not undertake this procedure, resulting in the loss and certain deaths of some of the younger boys.
Cheas, Trevor: In the book/film Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the character Piggy wears "thick spectacles." These spectacles, or as Piggy calls them, "specs," play a signifigant role in this story. They represent the ability to not only see, but also the ability to think logically and be mature. Without his glasses, Piggy is completely helpless, and his immediate first priority is to get them back as soon as they are gone from his head. In chapter two, Fire on the Mountain, the boys are attempting to light a fire to signal nearby planes or ships to come rescue them.
“Providing for others isn’t easy. And the mistakes you make trying are pretty unforgiving. (66)” Looking back at his mistakes, the other Wes understands that second chances are far and few when your choices affect other people. He only received a few second chances in life, and those were only given to him when his actions/crimes affect other people.

The organization of law and civilization is what gives people the structure to maintain peace. The novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding takes place during World War II; in the story a plane that is carrying boys ages 12 and younger gets shot down over an inhabited island: leaving the boys to fend for themselves.

In Jake Wallis article, “Why Lord of the Flies speaks volumes about boys”(2014), argues that Lord of the Flies is not about human nature, it’s only about how boys act. He supports his claim by saying “it could be more accurately be said to be about the male human condition.”Simons’s purpose is to tell the readers that the Lord of the Flies doesn’t talk about all human nature, it only talks about boys human nature. He creates a direct tone for everyone who reads the book. In my opinion this is a useful source because he made me realize the book is only about boys human nature and not girl human nature. I believe that this information is reliable because the author is backing up what is said in Lord of the Flies.

We’ll have to have ‘Hands up’ like at school” (Golding 33).In this scenario, Ralph established a sense of order for the group of boys.
