He was scared that people would judge the way the boys have been acting and the people they have become from their time on the island without any adults. The amount of times Ralph has mentioned being rescued the reader would think that he would like to go back to his home and become more of a human again. But the reader can learn that Ralph is embarrassed of what he as well as the other boys had
When they were not under the observation of Ralph, it was easy for them to sneak out and do things they wanted to do. 2. What does Jack tell his new tribe? Jack told his new tribe that they would invite others at their new camp. He told them they will make a fire because they need to keep their camp warm.
Ralph, in correlation with his insistence on being found and building shelter, decides to build a signal fire and places some of the boys to attend to it. This is juxtaposed with Jack wanting to hunt yet again. Jack takes the boys and uses them to assist in killing the pig, but, coincidentally, a ship passes the island while Jack has the boys that were responsible for keeping the fire going (Golding 68). This once again shows evidence of Jack’s insistence on the need to hold power. He feels that orders from Ralph don 't apply to him.
Jack ordered his hunters to “tie them up”. This is an imperative sentence to show that Jack is giving his hunters firm commands. This treatment towards Ralph and his friends is savagery, similar to that of a captor and his victim which strongly contrasts to his friendship with Ralph at the start of the book. Despite Ralph shouting in desperation for him to stop, Jack still told his hunters “Go on. Tie them.” The relationship worsened to the point of no return when Jack goes on a killing hunt for Ralph.
This new government that Jack has with barely if any rules, and its main focus being hunting, leads to violent acts by the boys that are now turned into complete savages. On the other hand, before, when they were under Ralph 's government, he had rules that most people followed and that kept order. In the next quote, Roger is let one morning alone with the littluns, and he 's talking to Henry when he proceeds to throw stones at him. “Roger stooped, picked up a stone, aimed, and threw it at Henry-threw it to miss” (62). Roger is asserting his dominance and the fact that if he wants, he can hurt Henry.
Ralph focuses on the diplomacy and peace but Jack is closer to a savage, ready to survive rather than thrive which is the start of both boys conflict. Though following Ralph worked, the boys did not get what they needed through him. And though Jack provided food and protection, he was far from interested in getting
Guilt takes over Ralph’s body and he is beginning to think that maybe the boys are taking this dispute slightly too far in line with the quote, “I’m frightened. Of us” (Golding 200). Ralph is foreshadowing that something monstrous is about to happen on the island, and that maybe the boys need to reevaluate the problem and fix this before the dilemma gets out of hand. Unfortunately, that is not the case. At the end of the story, the reader can indicate that Ralph has lost his innocence by the quote, “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of true, wise friend called Piggy” (Golding 261).
Ralph had everyone doing tasks, to keep the production going. Jack kept refusing to do anything Ralph would say, he’d always disagree, even when he knew he was wrong. Jack only wanted to hunt and kill things, even if it was his own peers, that’s what he loved to do, and he wouldn’t stop. Jack and the savages became very untrustworthy, and unpredictable, they were dangerous. Ralph tried getting the hunters to come back into his clan, so Jack would be on his own, but they always did what Jack said, even if they knew it was wrong.
This is first shown in the beginning of the story. When Ralph is chosen to be leader, he tells Jack to be in charge of the choir boys who become hunters. At first, Jack cannot handle being a hunter. He has trouble trying to kill the pig, “’Before I could kill it-but-next time!’” (31). Once he has finally killed a pig, however, he becomes more violent.
This displays his control over their fear of the beast and this act uplifts Jack’s power status. Jack converts their fear into power and is able to win the view of the community. In the middle of the book, it is evident that both boys have different goals. This can be seen, when Ralph and Jack fight about which is more important, building protection/ shelter (Ralph’s opinion) or hunting for food (Jack’s opinion). The quote, “rules, rules, so many rules”, illustrates his approach to survival, which is to hunt for food, while having fun.
