Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, a group of boys crash landed on a deserted island with no adults. They must face conflicts with each other, the island, and themselves to survive. In chapter 9, Jack and his tribe had a feast, and invited all the other boys. During the feast, a storm rolled in, and they became animalistic while eating, chanting, and dancing around the fire. Meanwhile, Simon was on the mountain discovering that the beast wasn’t real.
Good v.s. Evil, Gibran v.s. Golding After a terrific storm sweeps over the Pacific Ocean during World War II, a group of British schoolboys are stranded on a tropical island following a plane crash. Forced to survive on their own, the boys attempt to govern themselves but ultimately succumb to savagery. In a different era, a Prophet stands before a group of villagers who ask him to speak of the good and evil in all people.
When he wakes up after passing out, he walks to the mountain, where he discovers a dead parachutist. Seeing then that the brute does not exist remotely yet rather inside of every individual kid, Simon goes to the shoreline to tell the others what he has seen. Be that as it may, the others are amidst a disordered party even Ralph and Piggy have joined Jack's gala and when they see Simon's shadowy figure rise up out of the wilderness, they fall upon him and slaughter him with their bristle some
Lastly, in the end of the book, Piggy, Ralph, and Sam and Eric, a set of twins, are the only ones who have not joined a new tribe created by Jack. The other older boys raid what they have left and leads Ralph, Piggy and the twins to confront Jack. While Jack and Ralph are yelling at each other and fighting, a large boulder rolls down a hill and strucks Piggy, who falls off of a cliff and quickly dies. On page 181, the narrator states, “Then the sea breathed again in a long, slow sigh, the water boiled white and pink over the rock; and when it went, sucking back again, the body of Piggy was gone. This time the silence was complete.
Jack’s gruesome chant shows that he has already turned into a savage because it wasn’t necessary for him to sing such vile words, but he did it anyway. Finally, right after Jack kills Simon in a frenzy, he says, “He came – disguised. He may come again even though we gave him the head of our kill to eat.” (Golding 160). Clearly, Jack and his mask
Jack uses fear and manipulation to gain power over the rest of the group. "Ralph 's right of course. There isn 't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we 'd hunt it and kill it. We 're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody.

However, another boy who was supposed to be their leader, Ralph, rejected his idea and because of that, Jack was so angry and decided to break their law that was agreed by everyone together before. As the anger emotion had controlled Jack, he started to feel rage towards Ralph. This is because Ralph was the leader, so, most of the boys were on Ralph side. He then created his own troops and started hunting for animals.
F) He makes a brief comment on the “beast”. “Maybe there is a beast… What I mean is… Maybe it’s only us.” He then becomes “inarticulate to express mankind’s essential illness.” These statements are a much more direct remark on the savagery of man that is the beast. Much later in chapter 9 (Doc. F), the hunters form a tribe under Jack and perform a ritual dance. They find what they think to be the “beast”, and attack it.
At the start of this novel, the next world war was about to start, and a plane crashes on an inhabited island which kills the pilot and some of the schoolboys. Then the boys find themselves on an island which has no supervision, and they have to figure out what they want to do. Ralph, the leader who uses a conch shell to call the group together, tries to set rules to keep
He is solidly relying on the wild and killing pigs to survive. He is no longer worried about being rescued; he is worried about being chief. He leads his new “tribe” in killing pigs and attacking the others. One night, he led some of his “tribe” to go attack the Ralph´s group in order to get Piggy’s glasses for their fire. Ralph, at this point, is furious.
