The boys on the island had the opportunity to choose who they wanted to become their leader. Later in the novel, the majority of the boys chose to switch and follow Jack because they wanted to hunt and kill pigs. Jack had led them all to become savages and to obliterate their civilized side, however, in the end, it was up to each individual boy if they wanted to continue to follow Ralph, a civilized leader, or to follow Jack, a savage leader. Jack’s tribe is filled with a bunch of savages, who are trying to kill the “beast” on the island, but instead of killing the beast, they accidentally kill one of their own boys, Simon. Jack tries to cover it up, “‘I expect the beast disguised himself…’
These attributes are commonly associated with the opposite gender, and Shakespeare uses this exchange of traits to accentuate the irregularity of the situation being represented. The more dramatic features, though, are Romeo’s, and Shakespeare shows how difficult it is for him not to fit in the box of “being a man”. When Tybalt came to kill Romeo, Mercutio interfered, and it ended up costing him his life. Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate /
He tries to be the most violent and most savage boy by putting clay and mud to cover their faces. Ralph then calls a meeting but during it Jack makes a scene where he wants to go on his own and make his own tribe. Before he leaves Ralph 's group he turns back and asks if anybody would like to join him and people do. He and his tribe all turn into a violent group and all they want to do is kill pigs and cause terror to Ralph’s tribe. “Kill the pig!
After killing the pig Jack becomes a rebel and goes away from the group. He makes his own group and rules by fear and controls everyone who is in his group. He and his group kill simon because they think he is the beast,He makes a friendship with Roger and trains him to be evil and become a torturer. Roger eventually murders piggy which impacts Ralph. At the end of the story he chases Ralph and we do not know what happens to him.
The third and most abrupt change is when Jack tries to kill Ralph. The old leader wants nothing but to sooth the chaos of the island. However, Jack has different intentions and wants Ralph to be executed. Ralph’s execution prolongs when Jack sets the forest on fire to try to flush Ralph out. However, this act catches a naval officer 's ship to check out the situation.
Isolated and alone, you have to make the right decisions to help the group survive. Without authority figures around to help make decisions, you’ll have to think for the group. In William Goldings, Lord of the Flies, young British boys are secluded on an island where they must learn how to survive in an unknown environment and with each other. The boys make games of hunting and killing each other while their humanity slowly erodes and they become more beastly. The boys’ proper British morals slip away with their new found freedom on the island.
In Lord of the Flies, William Golding’s portrayal of the stranded boys’ bloodlust shows a childhood filled with tribulation and terror. Golding showcases his belief that all men contain wicked desires when the boys abandon their attempts of democracy on the island. Their time spent on the island reveals that even childhood innocence turns dark without society enforcing justice. Simon’s hallucination with the pig’s head creates a physical representation of the evil that took over the stranded boys. The pig tells Simon, “fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill!
Iago planted Jealousy within Othello with a rumor that Iago made up himself. He told Othello about Cassio and Desdemona having an affair behind Othello’s back. Iago could have made this rumor about anyone but he still chose Cassio. Iago wants Cassio and Othello to suffer for the decision Othello made. He makes Othello so infuriated that he wants Cassio dead.
In Shakespeare 's play, Othello, the main character, Othello, displays actions that are classified as weak or strong emotionally. Throughout the play, Othello shows more weakness than strength when he turns over to jealousy, hits Desdemona, and calls her names shortly before wrongfully killing her. Othello’s first action of weakness shows when he turns jealous. Iago, his ensign, convinces him that his wife, Desdemona, has been having an affair with his lieutenant, Cassio. This is Othello’s response to Iago’s mortifying news, “She’s gone, I am abused, and my relief / Must be to loathe her.
In the woods … [it comes] in the dark” (Golding 33). Although the boys laugh and dismiss this at first as a nightmare, problems arise when other boys swear to have witnessed this beast. Little did they know that this beast would become the thing most feared to everyone on the island. And so it begins: one boy claims to have seen a beast, and all the boys slowly become obsessed with the idea of a beast on the island.
They are left to fend for themselves and try to recreate a small, boyish society. There are two boys in particular, Jack and Roger, which display sociopathic and psychopathic personality traits respectively. Jack is a manipulative yet organized young boy that persuades others trapped on the island to join his tribe of hunters—a group of boys that rejected the want for civilized structure and rules and instead devote their time to killing animals for pleasure. At the beginning of the novel, clues about Jack’s sociopathy are given when he torments the smaller kids for his own amusement.
Iago has a desire to destroy the lives of Othello and Desdemona because he thinks that Othello slept with his wife. This makes Iago villainous because he is planning destruction.

Where would we be without acceptance in the world today? All of us would be living in a society where everyone was frightened of being different. Barbara Jordan’s quote, “We, as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves”, mirrors the thought that acceptance is crucial in today’s ever-changing world. The two pieces of text that will be analyzed and related to the aforementioned quote are Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, and Texas vs. Johnson: Majority Opinion, which was written by Justice William Brennan. In the novel by William Golding, a group of schoolboys experience a plane crash and find themselves on an island in the middle of nowhere.
In the end, they made it out, but they were on the brink of death. The biggest mistakes they made were Jack and Ralph fighting for the role of chief, Jack’s hunger for power, them not working together, and disrespecting Piggy. Then, how they didn’t have any rules or structure. They could have had a overall better island society if they didn’t do these things and for my 3rd paragraph I’m going to talking about what they could have done to make their tribe work and changes they could have made for the better. Their perfect island society slowly became a dysfunction nightmare.
