Kids are not capable of understanding that leaders are allowed to have flaws and weaknesses. “...piggy was an outsider, not only by his accent, which did not matter, but by fat, and ass-mar, and specs and certain disinclination for manual labor.” (p. 65). Rejection of Piggy and his brilliant leadership gave rise to the “savage” hunters under Jack Merridew leadership and made the life of all boys very
Because Ralph follows Piggy, he never seems to turn to the “dark side”. He isn’t a savage like the others, who pushed Piggy away. Simon could also be considered a guide because he understood more about what was going on better than the others. He was able to figure out that the monster wasn’t really a monster. But no one ever listened to Simon, they made him an outcast, when really he could have helped them a lot.That is why they couldn’t think straight, they turned into monsters because they didn’t follow their “guides”.
But every place they went couldn’t help them. When he realized that there was no doctor that could “fix” Kyle, he felt ashamed to know that his son looks like a Beast. He didn’t want to deal with that, so he sent him off to live with Magda there maid. This showed that Kyle most likely got his attitude and personality from his Dad. All in all, I think that Flinn, the author of Beastly used craft well to connect all characters and their actions.
He lists the injustice each animals face such as the horse having her children taken away and hens having their eggs taken. MLK also doesn’t tell his audience about any of his personal experiences unlike Old Major. Old Major says how he has seen the cruel acts of Jones and this helps the audience relate better because they begin to fear the same will happen to them. MLK didn’t include any personal experiences in his speech which would’ve shown that even a great man like MLK faces the injustice known as segregation.
They wanted a fun and drama, and hunting seemed to solve their misery on the dull island. As life on the island continues, each of them slowly become bored and duties were ignored, Jack started to get her groups and left duties for hunting, he knew that if he came back with meat, everyone would respect him for giving them something they crave for. This plan was successful as they proudly came back with a pig, others saw their heroic actions and wanted to join so that they aren’t left out of the fun. Jack had achieved his selfish goals but in doing so, failed to keep the fire going and missed a ship when it past by, showing how a someones ego can be so lethal on a society. Once the boys settle onto the island, they inherit new desires and thinking styles, a virulent downfall of civilization starts as they slack off work for personal enjoyments.
For instance, as Ralph is accentuating Piggy’s assets, he explains, “Piggy, for all his ludicrous body, had brains” (71). Each boy in the group has little respect for Piggy and thinks of him as an outsider, yet Piggy continues to stay true to himself and finds small ways to help the group, which always involves his high level of thinking. Piggy knows better than to participate in the savage acts with other boys, which helps him maintain his sanity up until his gruesome death. Moreover, in a large discussion with all the boys, Piggy reflects, “Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?” (259). The main reason as to why Piggy is not respected by the other boys is due to his disapproval of the harsh conduct displayed by the rest of the group, which causes him to share his own thoughts and opinions even though they are never accepted.
Unlike those of us who act like sheep. We do as we are told and never question our shepherds. People like Jack because he is extremely blunt about everything. How many of us would like to tell our boss to kiss our collective asses or take this job and shove it! Unfortunately we stop short in fear of the repercussions.
The way you speak says a lot about you. Victor created his creature in a manner that even he was afraid of it and ran off, so he never had the opportunity to show him how to speak. However, the monster learned to speak and act in a very proper manner. The eloquence and persuasiveness make it easier as a reader to sympathise with Victor’s creation because you learn he’s not evil, has humane characteristics, and forget he’s a monster. Rejected by his creator, the monster seeks shelter, however, he is disoriented and with the basic concepts that will allow him to survive.
He is saying I want you to know that I was not rude just to be mean I was rude so nothing like this happened. People can infer that George had a softer side but rarely used it with people because if people like that think you are soft they will walk all over you. When you are on a ranch it is every man for themselves. In conclusion, George has two totally different sides to him and he uses one side more often than the other. This also shows that Lennie and George have their ups and downs but in the end they have each other’s backs.
No matter who a person is or what others think of him or her, that person will always have the opportunity to change for the better; Nobody has the power to tell a person what he or she can or cannot do. In the novel, A Lesson Before Dying, by Ernest J. Gaines, the protagonist, Jefferson discovers that he could change as a whole person and finally become a man, even under difficult circumstances. He is constantly discriminated and does not feel welcomed to the society. Throughout the majority of the novel, Jefferson believes he is his own stereotype and takes it to heart when he is being called a hog. Although he knows he will be exiled, Jefferson and his family hopes for a change in his heart.
Ironically, Simon was going over to them to tell them there is no beast, since he just finished having a hallucination of the pig head speaking to him naming himself ‘The Lord Of The Flies’. “Fancy thinking the beast was something you could hunt and kill!”, which indicates that the Beast is not meant to be touched, heard, seen, tasted nor smelled because it’s simply within. Ralph’s group consist of littluns, the twins and innocent Piggy, Simon had a bond with Ralph so it was hard for him to get over it, whereas Jack’s group consist of everyone else and they didn’t really felt sympathy, or at least didn’t show it. (Thus allowing the secondary characters to become more meaningful in my opinion). Jack’s group hunts and rolls boulders and chants.
