“He shouts, ‘Rhinotomy!’ Then he places a steel saw under his nose with the jagged edges facing towards it. His lips, black as his arms, tremble, which makes one think he is smiling. Then his arms move vigorously, with each movement he shouts desperately ‘Rhinotomy!’ As the jagged edges edge themselves into the nose, fresh blood begins seeping out” (Yu Hua 362). Being persecuted during the Revolution, he is unable to assimilate the terrifying memories into his experience which results in a lingering of his traumatic experience, and only through the practice of masochism can he free himself from the nightmare.

From fear comes malevolence, and from malevolence comes violence. The violence between each other is yet another factor that allows the boys to rule society. Golding vividly displays this savagery in a scene when. “The rock struck Piggy” a “glancing blow from chin to knee[...] [Piggy] traveled through the air sideways from the rock, turning over as he went.

All Bruno could do was stand there and hear all of this madness unfold. Finally, his frantic thoughts were halted.
