Pikelet is initially captivated and inspired by the surfers from Angelus because they are different from any other masculine role models he has encountered.

“Piggy shouted again. “Which is better to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?” Again the clamor and again “Zup!” Ralph shouted against the noise. “Which is better, law and rescue, or hunting and breaking things up?”(11.200-207). As the boys start to turn savage, the conch however loses its influence among the boys. “ The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist.“ (11.209) This quote signifies the destruction of
His story is as follows: “There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes ‘What the hell is water?’”. By saying “I am not the wise old fish.
